I have trouble growing out a little stubble, let alone a full-grown beard. So I must admit I was a little jealous of a cute little dog with a giant beard.
Nuts the Belgian Griffon got the nickname ‘Chewbacca’ from his loyal fans online that had fallen in love with his well-groomed facial hair.
You would think this dog has his own glam squad to make his beard look that luscious, but the dog’s owner Tatiana Kovalenok, from Moscow, said he doesn’t require any ‘special treatment’.
Nuts has had a full-grown beard since he was 8-months-old.
Tatiana says that her dog, now 3-years-old, ‘never actually paid attention to it until I started receiving comments from my followers on Instagram’.
Nuts’ owner told The Dodo:
Almost every day when we walk, we get reactions from random people regarding his appearance and his beard. Kids usually say that he’s a ‘funny dog’ or ‘looks like a grandpa’. Older people always mention him as a stylish dog, saying something like: ‘Look at the beard he has.’ Some people call him hipster or even Chewbacca.
