This Dog Gets Paid To Model Clothes

A 5-year-old Shiba Inu known as the "Menswear Dog" is gaining fame for his modeling skills.

A new video from Barcroft TV features the adorable Bodhi in his element, posing for the camera while outfitted in collared shirts, fashionable knits and stylish hats like an absolute pro.

Bodhi's New York City-based owners first discovered his talents while playing dress-up one Saturday. After putting images of their fancified dog online, owners David Fung and Yena Kim say they received an overwhelming response from media and fashion clients who wanted Bodhi to represent their brand.

"We just found out that when we put clothes on him he lit up, he started posing for us," Fung said.

Bodhi has since notched more than 146,000 Instagram followers and modeled for such brands as ASOS, Coach, and Salvatore Ferragamo, according to the U.K.'s Daily Star.

Fung and Kim have decided to devote the majority of their time to representing Bodhi and managing his burgeoning modeling career.

"We both decided to quit our jobs for this, mainly as an excuse really to take a break from the 9 to 5 and do something a little less ordinary for a bit while we have this opportunity," Fung told Barcroft.
