White dog left unrecognisable after going for a roll in freshly cut grass

People have been left in stitches by the sight of a dog who took itself for a little roll around in some freshly cut, wet grass.

The once white dog is pictured to be dyed green from head to paws, with no patch of fur left untouched to provide a look at the true colour of its coat underneath.

A picture of the mischievous pup went viral on Twitter and racked up more than 50,000 likes after being shared with the caption: “One white dog + wet freshly cut grass.”

And while internet detectives pointed out the image had been edited and re-shared from a post on Reddit, dog lovers were left in hysterics at the state of the luminous dog.

One commented: “I’ve never seen a dog look more like the Grinch in my life. Love this.”

A second asked: “Can’t we just leave him this way for a little bit?”

A third said: “Aww cute, people pay a lot of money for that colour, maybe he felt like a change.”

Another wrote: “That is the best thing I will see for a long, long time.”

Someone else added: “Awww, looks like Oscar the Grouch!”

It’s not the first dog to have gained attention for getting itself into a spot of bother recently after an overly-enthusiastic labrador had to be rescued by firefighers.

A distressed dog owner approached a fire crew who were taking part in a training exercise to say her dog Indy had gone swimming to chase some ducks nearby and never came back.

The black lab was finally found and reunited with her owner having pursued the birds for more than half a mile – and was still going strong when the emergency services caught up with her.
