NBC Today Show Dog Video: Labradoodle, Charles The Monarch, With Unique Grooming Confused As Lion In Norfolk, Virginia (January 9, 2013)

The following Today show video is about a Labradoodle dog (part poodle and part Labrador retriever) that was confused as a lion in Norfolk, Virginia. The dog’s name is Charles The Monarch. The owner is Daniel Painter, who owns a local business, Daniel’s Lawn And Garden Center.This animal video is from the January 9, 2013 edition of the Today show.

The dog in question was actually groomed to look like a lion. But the 3-year-old puppy doesn’t look that much like a lion. And its body size and lack of muscle should have been a clue that it definitely was not a lion. At any rate, at least one person apparently called 911 to report that a lion was running loose on the streets of Norfolk.

Charles The Monarch was groomed to look like Big Blue, Old Dominion’s mascot.

Video of the lion-like Labradoodle dog was provided by Stephen M. Katz and The Virginian-Pilot.
