Dog with 'Italian accent' proves animals sound like their owners

They say that pets look like their owners - and it turns out they might sound like them too.

Anyone who has a pet will probably speak to them more than they do their friends and family (despite our four-legged friends not being able to respond in our language).

And, with this in mind, there's a chance that they pick up on our accents and end up sounding a bit like us.

Aaron the husky is the perfect example of this, and he's recently gone viral on TikTok.

In the video, Aaron's Italian owner is chatting to him when he replies with what can only be described as an accent similar to hers.

The clip has been viewed nearly seven million times, and everyone has been saying the same thing.

"WHY DOES THE HUSKY SOUND ITALIAN ALSO LMAO," questioned one person, as another echoed: "The husky even sounds Italian as well."

"He's really like 'bo bo bo'," said a third.

Someone else even went as far as saying Aaron could speak better Italian than them.

"I've never heard Husky whines with an accent. It's so cute!" added another.

As to whether animals can really have accents, some studies have proven that they do.

Canine Behavior Center in Cumbria, England, found that dogs have regional accents like their owners because their owner's speech influences the way a dog vocalizes.

They conducted a study back in 2000 and recorded sounds of dogs barking and growling.

These sound samples were then compared and analyzed to produce the final result and ultimately discovered that pooches mimic the tone and pitch of their owners.

Tracey Gudgeon, from the Center, previously told The Mirror: "It seems dogs are more able to imitate stronger, more distinctive accents than softer ones. It's one of the ways they bond with their owner."

And dogs aren't alone in having accents - other animals apparently do too.

In Britain, variation in vocalizations between birds have been found in different parts of the UK.

For example, ‘Cockney’ mallard ducks in London are said to have a harsher quack than those in Cornwall.

Elsewhere, farmers have reported that their cows in the West Country have an accent too.

Other animals with accents include sperm whales, orcas and humpbacks, as well as singing gibbons and rock hyraxes.

Cats have also been found to have an accent and, if you haven't heard of the Liverpudlian-sounding cat, I strongly suggest you Google it.
