This dapper dog has set tails wagging with his impressive floor-length beard.
Teddy’s distinctive facial features will make any human jealous and help him stand out from his peers.
His owner, Nicola Wilcox is a professional dog groomer who maintains his signature look.
His beard is so large that it extends to the ground. It never fails to capture people’s eyes.
Nicola, 50, from Hartlepool, said: “He’s very well known for it. People love him, they look at his beard and say ‘there’s the little dog with the beard’ and they will all stop.
“He’s normally the scruffiest dog, but nobody can walk past him in the street without commenting on him.”
To keep Ted, or Super Ted, looking dapper, Nicola grooms him once a month and has his beard and tail combed every day, TeamDogs reports.
With more than five years of dog grooming experience, this might just be her favourite look of all time. She says the nine-year-old dog is ‘a mucky mixture’ but is amazing and the look suits his funny, stubborn and naughty personality.
It all started with him trying to grow his beard. Now Nicola can’t bear to get rid of it. After trimming it just an inch, Nicola regretted it immediately so the beard will stay.
She said: “His beard grows really quick but it won’t get any longer than this. It’s almost rubbing on the pavement as he walks.”
It was Teddy and her Shih Tzu Bobby who unfortunately is no longer here, who inspired her to start her own company.
Nicola said: “Bobby was my other dog, but he had a brain tumour. They were the reason I started grooming but now I have a really busy business because of them.”

The bearded pup now has other friends who come to Nicola for a trim.
She said: “I cut about 10 dogs a day and Ted has his favourites that come – a cockapoo called Beau, a poodle called Charlie and a Shih Tzu called Woody.”
Nicola says if you’re thinking of giving your own dog a beard then you must keep the lips clear. The perfect setting for infection is when hair gets caught around their teeth.
