George Washington is a nine-year-old dog who lives in Memphis, USA. He recently gained popularity on the Internet, unexpectedly for himself and his owner. His owner Ella May took him to the groomer for a creative, retro haircut – the kind often done by ’90s stars.
According to the owner, the retro haircut has been making a comeback lately – a lot of people in America are doing it.
The owners were happy with the result of the haircut as was George himself! According to the owners, the dog is now constantly being noticed during walks, noting his haircut and asking for photos.
“It really makes me laugh that people have resemble him to the likes of Joe Exotic and people find it hilarious that he reminds them so much of him.I think it is a mixture between his golden blonde locks and the mullet haircut that makes them look so similar. I can see the resemblance between them for sure, but my George Washington is just a way cuter version of course. A mullet is a haircut that a lot of kids are getting these days in the south. We always joke about the Alabama waterfall haircut, so why not let our George rock one? We didn’t want him to miss out on the fun of a mullet, even if that means he bears a resemblance to Joe Exotic. We have been getting his haircut like a lion for a few years now, and we just thought we would switch it up a bit. It was actually mainly my husband’s idea to go for a mullet. He thought it would make a nice change from his usual style, and as he is so cute anyway, we knew he would look great with it.”the owner says.
