“My dog ​​is Billy Connolly’s double – it’s an uncanny resemblance”

They say dogs look like their owners, but sometimes they also look weird like distant celebrity relatives.

A cute pooch has been dubbed a doggy lookalike for Billy Connolly after his owner spotted an uncanny resemblance between the two.

Shih tzu Noddy is regularly stopped on the street by people who are blown away by his facial hair.

The 13-year-old sports a bouncy tuft of hair on his crown, an immaculately trimmed mustache and a long, flowing beard, making him a dead dog to the Big Yin.

Sally Maher, 48, was first told by a pal that Noddy bore more than a passing resemblance to the legendary Scottish comedian after he had a cropped summer haircut earlier this year.

Since then, Sally has regularly seen open-mouthed people giving him double stares in the street, with a delighted child telling his mother “the dog has a beard”.

When the two are out, the cleaning business owner says her pooch “minority” draws attention and refuses to walk past people without stopping and enjoying the excitement.

Sally, from Oldham, Greater Manchester, said: “Our Noddy looks like Billy Connolly, it’s an uncanny resemblance.

“One of my friends commented and mentioned that he looks like Billy Connolly, everyone says he does.

“Everyone knows Noddy where we live, he’s like a minor celebrity. He is known for his haircut.

“He gets his hair done at The Dog House in Lees, Jan specializes in his haircut.

“We’re just asking about his spiked and beard look, it’s a summer cut and he loves getting it done.

“Since it’s warmer now, he gets his hair cut every five weeks.

“When we were in Cornwall last year this little boy came over and said ‘Mum the pooch has a beard’ and she said ‘Oh don’t be silly’. Then she saw him and said ‘Oh yes’.

“He gets a lot of attention wherever he goes. You can’t just walk past someone, you have to pet them. He’s a little humanitarian, he’s absolutely adorable.







Sally says their personalities are similar too

“When he’s all furry he looks like an Ewok from Star Wars – they’re two completely different looks.”

The mother-of-two said although she looks like a comedian and has a funny side, she has a “wise soul”.

Sally said, “He’s a wise little soul, he reminds me of Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid.

“He tells you what he wants just by looking at you, I can read what he wants in his eyes.

“He’s the most beautiful dog in the world, we also have his daughter Rosie who lives with us and she drives him crazy.

“He has a fun side and is treated like royalty with his little knitted blankets and pillows.

“He deserves nothing less, I love him – everyone does.”
