“Lion” dog sighting prompts neighbors to call 911


A lion on the loose! At least that is what panicked neighbors in Virginia thought! Several called 911 reporting a lion on the run!

Turns out, the animal on the loose was a dog! He is a labradoodle with a haircut like a lion’s mane. The dog’s name is Charles the Monarch and he really does look like the king of the jungle. His owner says Charles’ hairdo is meant to look like the Old Dominion University mascot.

Charles isn’t the only dog who looks like a different animal. My dog Dottie looks a lot like a panda!

If you have pets that look like other animals, Tweet their pictures to me @gretawire and make sure you use #greta!
