The Harry Potter star Emma Watson has caused controversy recently after being spotted walking a small dog that was dyed bright pink.
The former wizard was seen walking a candy-coloured Maltese terrier in Bethnal Green, East London. Reports claim that the 22-year old had the pet pooch’s fur dyed.
Animal lovers have been far from pleased over the pink pooch’s new look with one TV vet suggesting that dogs are not to be played with and are not toys.
Since the photograph has been published it has emerged that Emma Watson doesn’t own the furry fuchsia creature and it actually belongs to a friend.
The one-year old pet pooch has allegedly been dyed in the bright pink colour in a bid to raise money for Cancer Research. Taking to Twitter, Miss Watson claims that she does not own a dog and that she was just walking the pet for a friend.
This is not the first time that pets have been dyed an assortment of colours as a number of celebrities have given their loveable household creates a colourful make-over recently.
Celebrity Apprentice star Aubrey O'Day was spotted earlier this year with two cotton-candy coloured dogs in West Hollywood. One dyed bright blue and the other bright pink. The 28-year old reality TV star claimed to have been dyeing her dogs for years.
There are a number of pet salons which offer the unique service. This is a new craze which is becoming increasingly popular throughout the UK and other parts of the world.
