That’s a Dog, and We Ain’t Lion

NORFOLK, VA – It was a case of mistaken identity for one dog with a unique appearance in Norfolk, Virginia.

Police started getting calls from residents in the area, who reported seeing a small lion on the loose in the streets.

But it wasn’t a lion — just a labradoodle with a fur-cut that made it look like he had a lion’s mane.

The dog’s owner says he cuts the dog’s coat that way, so that he can look like the mascot of Old Dominion University.

The school’s mascot?  You guessed it — a lion.
