These over-the-top dog photos by photographer Ren Netherland will undoubtedly grab attention.
If you take your dog to the dog groomer, you expect your dog to look prim and proper once the entire grooming process is done and nothing more. The majority of dog owners subjugate their canine companions to a bland conformist style.
The dogs featured in Netherland's photos have been dyed and sheared to showcase images of well-known television characters, jungle animals, mythical creatures and sci-fi characters. The dogs depicted were part of creative dog grooming competitions across the United States.
Not many dog owners are willing to recreate their dog's image for the sake of breaking away from societal norms, which makes these photos all the more valuable.
