Models Direct staff were thrilled to see a Pomeranian dog model called Harvey Moon’s story in the Daily Mail yesterday. The agency is used to receiving positive feedback from pet model owners but never quite like this! Naturally nervous pooch Harvey is remarkably transformed from shy to positively ecstatic when his owner dyes him a bright colour for modelling work.
Harvey’s love of being dyed was discovered when he had to ‘go green’ (with a safe vegetable dye) for a music video assignment. Owner Stephanie Mariam said that he became instantly animated when he was dyed, but as the colour wore off, so did his new-found confidence – returning him to his former, shyer self:
“He has always been a lovely dog and he has always been very well behaved but he was quite quiet and reserved. When we dyed him for the video he just came out of his shell.
“He was a bundle of fun and actually went out his way looking for attention. But as the dye washed out he started to get quieter again.”
With this in mind, 19-year-old Stephanie tried colouring Harvey a second time to see if the same transformation occurred. Lo and behold, her furry friend once again became the life and soul of the party, with his colourful coat reflecting his enhanced personality.
“Once he was dyed again he was back bouncing about so we haven’t looked back. It obviously makes him happy,” she told Daily Mail a reporter.
He does look very happy in the pictures, and apparently the dyes have improved the condition of his coat too, so it’s win-win situation according to Stephanie, who clearly loves her pet dearly.
“The first thing I loved about Pomeranian’s was that they looked like teddy bears and as I researched them more I liked the sound of their temperament. I fell in love with him as soon as I saw him and thankfully my mum said I was allowed to have him.
“Harvey is my best friend, he is my baby. I don’t know how to put it any other way because he is the best companion I could ask for.”
Everyone at Models Direct wish Stephanie and Harvey and long, happy and colourful career!
