Pampered pooch has her fur dyed PINK and even her nails painted in expensive five hour grooming sessions.
Owner Laura Schakosky says Jewel the Yorkshire Terrier doesn’t mind the dye because her star sign means she’s always bright eyed and bushy tailed.
A dog owner has taken the term “pampered pooch” to the next level after revealing she spends THOUSANDS on keeping her pet pretty.
Celebrity make-up artist Laura Schakosky, 48, from Texas, says her blinged-up, pink-furred miniature Yorkshire Terrier named Jewel turns heads wherever she goes.
Jewel boasts pink, fluorescent fur which is dyed every five weeks at a cost of £115 per five hour grooming session, with Laura occasionally painting her claws to match.
The tiny animal ‘s unusual wardrobe is bursting with 50 rhinestone collars costing up to £40 each, as well as a items of clothing including a raincoat.
But while most dogs may growl at all the fuss, Laura says Jewel enjoys the extra attention.
Laura explained: “It’s because of her star sign. She’s an Aquarius which means she’s very communicative, she’s a gift to the world.
“She loves being pampered and is so open to everybody and so friendly. She wants to say hello to everybody. I know a lot of dogs are like that, but it is even more so with Jewel.”
Jewel’s astrological sign also makes her open to being petted and fussed over, according to Laura.
She continued: “She doesn’t mind when children – and adults – pet her and pose with her.
“It was what was meant to be. It’s all in the stars and I couldn’t change it if I wanted to.”
