Adorable dog who models for big brands has become an Instagram sensation
A four-year-old Cockapoo has made a name for herself on Instagram with her professional modelling shots.
Marley, from Liverpool, regularly poses in adverts for big brands such as Disney, Barbour, Zoopla, and Primark.
The adorable pooch even has her own Instagram account – created by 26-year-old owner Katie Ramsden – which boasts more than 50,000 followers.
Katie says: ‘She loves the attention and she’s a natural in front of the camera.
‘I’m a photographer by trade so setting Marley up an Instagram was a natural next step as soon as I got her.’
Just like human social media influencers, Marley is flooded with free gifts from brands, who ask to be featured on her Instagram.
However, owner Katie explains that – despite her fame – Marley has a pretty normal lifestyle. Rather than overspending on expensive treats and clothes, Katie opts for regular food and clothing from supermarkets.
Marley’s modelling career started when Katie took pictures of her in silly outfits, such as swimming goggles and arm bands.
These light-hearted photos soon caught the attention of fans and brands.
Katie adds: ‘It quickly changed from just a hobby into a full time job. Before we knew it, Marley had been signed up to a modelling agency called Urban Paws.
‘Through them, she has done photoshoots for big brands such as Ford, Barbour and Daniel Wellington.
‘Her favourite outfit is a yellow raincoat. We have a matching set so the pair of us go on our daily walks matching on a rainy day.’
Marley’s high-profile lifestyle means that her and Katie often get invited to events in London. Last year, the pair attended a Disney premiere.
Katie says: ‘She was recognised as she walked down the carpet, and even though there was a lot going on she took it all in her stride.’
Recently, Marley welcomed a new sister to the family – one-year-old Cockapoo Mabel.
Katie says the pair have a lovely bond and Mabel is also a natural in front of the camera.
She adds: ‘Even though they get some nice freebies and sponsorships, they certainly aren’t spoiled pups. They like a good cuddle and a long walk more than any product.’
