Dog influencer’s rock star hairdo earns him 12,000 Instagram followers

A springer spaniel with a natural rock god hairdo is making a fortune as a huge Instagram sensation.

As a puppy, Finley the dog sprouted a cool little mohawk on his head. But as time’s gone on he has come to look more and more like a heavy metal hero.

Finley’s owner, 21-year-old Rebecca Munday, says as his as his hair grew so did their Instagram account.

Finley now boasts over 12,000 followers and has become an online influencer for dog brands.

Rebecca, who lives in Hardwicke, Gloucester, said: "It all started when he was six-months-old with a mohawk. Then as he grew – his hair did too."

"He is groomed every six weeks," she explained.

"But I have to brush it every day to make sure it doesn't get matted.

"I absolutely love it and so do other people, we get stopped every time we are out in public.

"People always compliment his hair and say he looks like a Rockstar, Finley loves the attention and additional fuss from people."

Rebecca added: "He has been compared to Brian May from Queen and John Lennon.

"I used to trim it when he was younger but then I realised his hair makes him so unique and stand out from the other springers.

"I have crazy coloured hair myself, so it has become our thing."

Members of the public aren't the only ones who like his look – business owners too.

Finley has gained a range of free products from toys, collars, leads, beds and even poo bags to promote via his Instagram account.

Rebecca, who is a dog care assistant, donates additional collars and toys to animals at the shelter where she works.

Rebecca says that Finley's Instagram has changed her life – for example it found her her a house mate in April 2018.

She said: "As Finley's hair grew so did his account and businesses wanted him to promote their brand.

"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."
