Dog owner gives beloved golden retriever dramatic tiger makeover for Halloween

Odin the golden retriever’s tiger transformation has gone viral for Halloween, with more than 4.1 million views on TikTok

October sees thousands of dog owners dress their pets in cute, spooky and hilarious outfits for Halloween.

From spiders to pumpkins, and even Squid Game characters set to be popular in 2021 – there are so many choices when it comes to their costumes.

But one dog owner has given their golden retriever a dramatic makeover with pet friendly dye and transformed them into a tiger.

Odin the retriever, who lives with Dalmatians Kilala and Mirajane, wanted to throw it back to March 2020 when everyone was talking about Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin, dressing up as a zoo animal for October 31.

In the viral clip viewed more than 4.1 million times, Odin is lying down calmly in the garden whilst their owner paints his golden locks bright orange.

She then adds the black stripes and Odin chills out whilst his new look dries before the big reveal that would certainly turn heads on the morning walk.

Odin’s owner said: “Halloween is just around the corner and our other dog decided to be a tiger this year.

Fetch. Chase. Eat. Sleep. Repeat. is a new podcast from TeamDogs which takes a sideways look at what it’s REALLY like bringing puppies into your life.

Every week hosts Hannah Jones and Karen Price will be joined by celebrity dog owners like Strictly Come Dancing’s Shirley Ballas and Coronation Street actress Samia Longchambon to chew over the adventures – and misadventures! – of puppy parenting.

“I am a baby groomer and I’m dipping my toe into creative grooming. I had so much fun using Opaws colours on Odin to achieve this fun look. For the first time playing with colour I’m excited for how well it turned out.”

Opaws is a range of professional creative grooming products that are safe for dogs to create crazy transformations much like Odin’s.

Joanna Elson, from South Devon, once turned her cavapoo, Dexter, into Sesame Street’s Big Bird for a grooming competition, as well as a Chinese Foo Dog.

“I found my love for colour in these competitions as many had a creative groomer class,” said Jo. “We started small and just put chalk into his tail at first but I was hooked.”

And US groomer Anaïs Hayden’s designs have often gone viral, with her unique work racking up nearly 31,100 followers on Instagram and 25,000 on Facebook as a result.

Anaïs has also dyed dogs vibrant colours for The Hunger Games and Triple 9, as well as HBO Max’s Haute Dog .
