Adorable dog gets its fur dyed like a giraffe

A fluffy dog ​​looks unrecognizable after a crazy makeover transformed him into a giraffe.

Attention-loving Sir Winston Cooper is a Bernedoodle – a mix of Bernese mountain dog and poodle mix – and naturally has a tan colored coat.

But for the last five months, he’s strutted about his local park with a drastically different look, covered in brown patches from nose to tail.

His owner Marc Organo, 40, from San Diego, California, enlisted the help of award-winning animal groomer, Gabriel Feitosa.

Marc said: “My brother, Irwin, gave me the idea of ​​turning my dog ​​into a giraffe. He sent me a picture of a little poodle that was a giraffe and said, ‘I think your dog would make an amazing giraffe’.

“Giraffes have always been my favorite animal to see at the zoo and so I went for it.

“I approached my groomer, Gabriel Feitosa, and asked him if he would like to turn my dog ​​into a giraffe. He was totally game for it. Gabriel is an amazing animal groomer.”

Gabriel has expertise in turning canines into several animals such as tigers, zebras and unicorns by using dyes.

It took him approximately four hours and £300 to transform the one-year-old Bernedoodle’s coat.

Marc, who is studying to be a veterinary assistant, said: “His temperament is amazing though. The groomer told me he actually fell asleep while his hair was being dyed.

“The hair dye stays for about six to eight weeks before it needs a touch-up. Cooper’s natural color is his face which is a tan and cream color.

“His dyed parts are the spots and dark brown features. I first had him dyed at the beginning of November and he had a touch up in January.”

Sir Winston Cooper’s unique look has made him popular in the neighbourhood, but has also raised a lot of eyebrows from passers-by.

Marc has been questioned by many people his motive to dye the pooch – but he emphasizes that the dye is safe for animals and doesn’t harm him.

He said: “When people see Cooper, the first thing they do is pull out their phones.

“They’re usually intrigued and confused. Some people have thought he was wearing a onesie one time.

“I’ve had many people question my motives – both online and in person but his hair dye is Opawz and is perfectly safe for animals.”

Marc has also been accused of treating Cooper as a ‘toy’ and even slammed by people at shopping malls. But he retorts them saying that Cooper is safe and enjoys attention.

He said: “Online there’s been numerous response videos of people saying that it’s wrong and you shouldn’t be treating your dog like a toy?

“One time I had brought Cooper and like always people wanted to pet him and take pictures of him, and this lady came up to me and asked, why I dyed him in a very negative tone.

“But Cooper is safe and he enjoys the attention. I don’t respond to those people.”
