Dog dyeing to be tiger

A pet retriever has been dyed by its owner to resemble a tiger

These small furry dogs look the spitting image of baby panda cubs

The dog appears unfazed by its new coat

The dogs were put on show after being transferred to Zhenghou from Southwest China's Sichuan province

While some of the dogs were a hit with locals

If this strange creature growled at you, you wouldn't know whether to run from his sharp claws or pat him on the head and give him a biscuit.

From a distance, its striped orange and black coat makes it look like a particularly odd tiger.

But it's actually a retriever, the victim of the latest craze among some dog owners to dye their pets to look like other animals.
