Kuma, a Shih Tzu and Pekingese cross, has racked up more than 18,500 followers on her Instagram page which showcases her luscious locks.
Owner Yuki said: “I do Kuma’s hair on my own, it’s an original style. I get inspiration for the hairstyles from the internet.
"I originally saw a picture of a western model and I liked her hair so I just copied the style.”
Yuki’s Instagram account is completely dedicated to her furry friend - and the pup is an absolute natural in front of the camera.
As well as the hairstyles, Kuma - which means ‘bear’ in Japanese - has been expanding her range of looks to include cute dog hats and full costumes.
Kuma originally cost 150,000 Yen however owner Yuki said that she managed to buy her the adorable Shih Tzu and Pekingese for 50,000 Yen.
She said: “I first met Kuma at a pet shop. She cost 178,000 yen but I managed to get a discount and got her for 50,000 Yen.”
Yuki’s pet pooch can also be seen rocking several popular hairstyles such as a top bun, a double knot bun, inspired by Baby Spice and Kuma even reenacts Kendall Jenner’s famous heart-shaped hair snap.
Yuki spends hours a day on styling her glamorous pup and even sells Kuma greeting cards to her fans.
