Adorable Greyhound Can't Stop Sticking Her Tongue Out
Fiorella, an eight-year-old Italian Greyhound with a permanently sticky-out tongue, has won canine celebrity status thanks to her unique looks.
Owner Brittany Niewdach began uploading photos of the pooch, from Adelaide, Australia, on social media back in 2017.
With her lanky body, angular face and tongue that perpetually hangs out of the side of her mouth, little Fiorella soon brought the likes rolling in.
Now, the pooch has over 60,000 followers on Instagram.
"It all started with one picture that we took whilst we were on holiday, which gained some attention," Brittany said.
"I think every dog owner thinks their dog is worthy of being social-media-famous, but I truly knew she was special because of her quirky face and attitude.
"However, I never planned on her becoming so big."
Fiorella and her owner also live with Brittany's partner Dylan and their foster dog, Arlo, who arrived with a broken leg.
"We rescued Arlo, who was found with a broken leg, and we used Fiorella's social platform to raise funds for his surgery," explained Brittany.
"They have a love-hate relationship, but I have seen her stick up for her brother a few times at the dog park, which is quite cute."
In other unique dog news, another pooch who is proving beauty is only skin deep is albino Pekingese Boo.
The pale-haired canine is one of the most unusual-looking dogs to ever come through Battersea Dog's Home's doors - and he features on a recent episode of Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs.
Viewers will watch as Boo captures the hearts of Battersea's expert vets after he stopped by to have sight-saving surgery on his extremely protruding eyes.
His owners purchased him online but brought him to the renowned rescue when they became concerned about his health.
During his time at the London-based shelter, Boo's unusual looks led to many comparisons with The Neverending Story character Falkor, the Luck Dragon.
Thankfully, Paul O'Grady is on hand to find Boo a loving home on the episode.
Boo, we think you're great.
