Now imagine a dog who is more of a human than an actual dog. Okay, in case you couldn’t imagine that, type “Menswear Dog” in Google and enjoy “The Most Stylish Dog in the World”.
Bodhi is 12 years old but has more popularity than many people in the world. Currently on Instagram he has 400 thousand followers. He also has accounts on different social media apps like Facebook and Twitter but those are not that popular. With the help of his owners Yena Kim and David Fung they post once a week. Each of his photos is a collaboration with a world famous clothing brand like Nike. They even released their own line of clothes and it went kinda viral.
Bodhi’s owners quickly realized the potential of their dog. In April 2013 they both quit their full time jobs and started paying all their time and attention to the dog. Surely they don’t regret doing that. Estimates show that Yena and David with Bodhi earn 15000$ a month. In the interview with a Fast Company they said that they haven’t earned less than 10000$ in ‘quite some time’.
Afterwards Menswear dog was approached by Ben Lashes, the agent who helped turn Grumpy Cat from the feline with millions of Facebook followers into one with book and movie deals to match. It’s important to say that his factor also played a huge role in raising the awareness about Bodhi.
People who photoshoot Bodhi, say that working with him is much easier than with many professional models. He sits still during the process and gazes wistfully away from a camera at just the right angle. Most of the time the shooting process takes not more than 5 minutes. Also just like other dogs, he loves playing with kids, he is nice with other animals, and adores sleeping at the foot of his owner’s bed.
