You'll never be able to replace a deceased pet, but thanks to the developers of a new app, you might be able to find a look-alike.

PetMatch, now available in the iTunes App Store from Superfish, integrates a Snapchat-like interface with facial recognition technology to connect users with adoptable doppelganger dogs on PetFinder.

The software, however, makes no promises on how well-trained the look-alikes will be.
