Meet the Afghan Hound Giving Supermodels a Run for Their Money
Lifestyle| | By Margo Gothelf
Move over Gigi Hadid, this 5-year-old Afghan hound just might take your place on the runway.
Introducing Tea, a poised dog from Sydney, Australia, who has luscious locks of hair that rival Rapunzel. Tea’s elegant look has turned her into an international dog supermodel.
Tea’s owner, Luke Kavanagn, knew his dog was pretty when he adopted her, but never expected her to rise to this level of fame. Kavanagn shared a photo of her online this past June, which quickly went viral after being shared over one million times.
“Even our weekend walks draw a crowd. She pretends she doesn’t need the attention, but she definitely loves it, just like any supermodel,” Kavanagh shared with The Daily Telegraph. “We always thought that she was far too pretty to keep at home.”
According to Mashable, the Afghan hound has become a spokesman for Royal Canine and has also been featured in an ad campaign for Harriot and Hounds’ dog perfume.
Tea has become so popular that Kavanagn has had to say no to several appearances.
“Her retirement is due to no other reason than I reached a point where showing (grooming and show day) was taking me away from spending time with my family and I want to prioritize them over campaigning my dog,” Kavanagh explained.
Even though Tea will be harder to see in public, there are still plenty of pictures floating around the old internet that show off her beauty. Check out more below.
