We bet you’ve never been jealous of a dog’s hair before, but there’s a first for everything…
Finley the Springer Spaniel has absolutely beautiful hair that most of us can only dream of, and he didn’t have to spend a cent on it.
The three-year-old pooch was blessed with gorgeous auburn wavy locks, making him look like an Insta model - in fact, he actually is one. He now has over 12,000 followers on the ‘gram, which his 21-year-old owner Rebecca Munday says is all down to his luscious locks.
“It all started when he was six-months-old with a mohawk, then as he grew – his hair did too,” said Rebecca, who lives in Gloucester in the UK.
Finley only goes to the groomers every six months, just like any other dog – but Rebecca brushes him daily to keep him looking beaut and to get rid of any tangles.
“I absolutely love it and so do other people, we get stopped every time we are out in public,’ says Rebecca, who is a dog care assistant herself.
“People always compliment his hair and say he looks like a Rockstar, Finley loves the attention and additional fuss from people. He has been compared to Brian May from Queen and John Lennon,”
Finley has gained heaps of free products like toys, collars, leads, beds and even poo bags to promote via his Instagram account - a true Instfluencer. Rebecca donates additional collars and toys to animals at the shelter where she works.
Free doggy products aren’t the only thing Finley has blessed Rebecca with through his fame though: “I even met a really close friend through Instagram as I was always buying products from her online and we began meeting up,”
‘We then went on to move from Essex to Cotswold where I met my fiancé Ollie Bracey, 22, so I have a lot to thank Finley for. He is the most loving dog I could ever wish for and I am very lucky to have him. He is so well behaved and very much toy and treat motivated which is how I manage to get him to pose for the camera. Finley is super chilled but a typical mad spaniel when he is near water or mud, he will always come home filthy!”
How cute is he though?!
