Dog has the dye of the tiger
The owner of a New Zealand pet grooming business has transformed her dog into a tiger to show off her skills.
Jody Woodhouse dyed the coat of her three-year-old Australian labaradoodle Celebrity Woodhouse orange with black stripes.
Ms Woodhouse said: "We wanted to do something that would make people smile and this is something completely out of the hat.
"This is such a nice way to make people smile and give them something to talk about."
Celebrity Woodhouse is Jody's pet and travels to work in Tauranga, on North Island, each day with her.
Ms Woodhouse used an imported Japanese dye for the procedure which she insists is 100 per cent safe.
She added: "I'm absolutely astounded with the feedback, it's been mostly positive but a few people didn't understand why we did it, but once we explained it's a harmless procedure that's all in the name of fun, they seemed to enjoy it".
The dye job is expected to last a few months, until Celebrity Woodhouse is next clipped.
