Optical illusion: Can you spot the odd dog within 8 seconds?

Many people claim they have excellent observation skills. However, there are several tricky tests designed that can land you in a pickle. Here is one such seemingly simple and cute test, which can be quite difficult when you attempt it. In the image shared above, there are several dog faces that all look the same. However, hiding among all these dogs is one dog who is different from the rest. Your task is to find that dog, and that too within a time limit -- just 8 seconds. Can you do it? Prepare yourselves for the challenge. Your time starts now! 8.. 7.. 6.. 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1..time's up! Were you able to locate the different-looking dog? If the answer is yes, congratulations. You truly have excellent observation power that also works fast. If you failed, worry not, as you can become better with practice. The solution is provided below for all to check. Spot the dog: Solution
The different-looking dog is highlighted in the image below. As you can see, the difference is not in features but the pattern of the color of the dog's ears. Optical illusions are able to fool us as sometimes the brain fills in gaps when there is incomplete information, or creates an image that isn't even there, making it challenging to identify the differently-colored dog.
