Julie Marie Werner is a German photographer who found an abandoned, homeless dog in her garbage one day while she was living in Spain. While everyone else just walked right by this unfortunate animal, Julie immediately adopted him and decided to show the world how brave and beautiful this dog is. His braveness reminded inspired her to make him look like a lion on these photographs. She named her new best friend Tschikko Leopold von Werner. Julie managed to transform a homeless dog into a true king! The lion’s mane goes perfectly with this adorable dog. The photographer loved the dog so much that she simply had to take him with her when she moved back to Germany. Now, those two are inseparable. Quite a Cinderella story, wouldn’t you agree?
