After a few seconds the device will identify the breed and the overall ‘match’ percentage.
In the video Ambre showed how the app works and it identified her pet dog as a English pointer with a 62 per cent match, meaning the dog is likely a mixed breed.
The same scanner can also be used to detect different types of flowers and plants, but cannot identify cats.

After sharing the hack on social media, others were surprised they weren’t aware of the unique feature.
‘It was 100 per cent accurate with all my dogs,’ one TikTok user said.
‘This literally blew my mind!’ another said, a third added: ‘Omg I have to do this.’
Some said they had difficulty getting their dog to sit still for a short period of time, resulting in a false result.
