Yes, you heard it right… Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton‘s dog, Roscoe, earns more than many of us. Roscoe takes home $700 dollar a day as a model; that is $2,50,000 annually.
Quiet a star in himself, the bulldog has 1,42,000 followers on Instagram.
Roscoe, who is Hamilton’s sweetheart, travels with the racer on his private jet, and stays in plush hotels and Hamilton’s luxury adobe.
While talking to metro.co.uk, the 33-year-old racer said, “Roscoe is now part of a modelling agency and he has auditions, he will go up against ten or 15 different bulldogs, they will need a bulldog for a product. He gets paid $700 dollars a day, it’s ridiculous and he gets his treat, he loves it.”
Roscoe has his sperm frozen so that once he retires, his breed can continue to grow. Speaking to Beyond The Grid podcast about his decision to get his dog neutered, Lewis said, “The reason I had to get him snipped, is because, the poor guy would wake up randomly and he would ejaculate everywhere. He would get scared and wouldn’t know what happened, it was so funny, but it was bad as it was everywhere.”
The luxuries Roscoe and Hamilton’s other dog, Coco, enjoys is unbelievable for common mortals like us. They get acupuncture done, go for swimming and even enjoy sledging in the show. So, who all wants to live a dog’s life now?
