Abandoned Dog Found in Garbage Becomes A Lion He Deserves To Be!

16 Apr 2016 | by Ruchika Anand | Posted in: Wag News

German photographer Julia Marie Werner spotted a destitute dog looking for something to eat in her garage in Spain and lo! She immediately fell in love with him. What others perceived as a good for nothing being, Julia saw as an animal worth of appreciation – a lion in the making and now she wishes to share her idea in a series of photos that will bring a lump in your throats.

He appeared like a Simba to her, she was quoted saying to a site called Bored Panda. Being a big Lion King fan, she and her friend soon got busy with stitching out a mane for him, using some leftover fabric.

The four-legged model has been christened Tschikko Leopold von Werner, and the venture is called Grossstadt Lowe, which decoded in English is “Big City Lion”. Look at the pictures and see for yourself that this little brave heart is indeed the urban King!

The little fellow was very timid at first but some dog lovers told Julia that the best thing to do would be to coach some tricks to him. The mane came in handy and he soon learnt to jump on things and use his new prop. The photo shoot has been both a sport and fellowship between them now.

Tschikko, Julia believes, was disowned and thrown out of a car, left to fend for himself. Ever since then, the brave heart has come miles, both emotionally and geographically, as Julia brought him home in Germany.

Kids admire him, thinking of him to be a real-life lion.
