A grumpy looking husky dog has netted his owner a staggering 20,000 pounds that she is now using towards paying for her medical degree.

Jasmine Milton, 20, from Shropshire bought her two-year- old pup Anuko as a way of helping her battle with her bipolar disorder.

But the dog’s unusual markings have since caused a sensation online after she set up an Instagram page in Anuko’s name.

Appearing to have a steely stare and furrowed brow because of the pattern of his fur Anuko has amassed 21,000 followers on the social media site. (Photo: @HuskyAnuko/Instagram)

Jasmine said, “He’s really affectionate, he loves people. He loves cuddles, he loves dogs. He’s never been grumpy at all!

“He’s always had social media since he was a puppy and he has always had this look as well,” she said.

Thank you ~

Jasmine is hoping to enrol at the Plovdiv Medical University in Bulgaria next year and said: “It’s certainly going to help towards it all the money that he is making. It’s not going to cover the whole thing but it’s a real good start.”

She added: “Before I got him I went through a really low phase, when I was in hospital someone said dogs are a really good therapy dogs, they help their owners.

“It really did [help] I had him three months after I got out of hospital and literally straight away,” Jasmine said.
