NO, your eyes are not deceiving you! These two little Lichfield dogs now resemble miniature tigers after their coats were dyed to help raise money for Children in Need.

The Shih Tzus, Hugaboo and Coco, were coloured with orange and black stripes by professional dog groomer Abigail Watkiss last Thursday and she says their striking colours have drawn a lot of interest.

"They look absolutely amazing," said Abigail (21).

"I have seen what other people have done with tiger dyes and it did not work, but I am pleased with ours."...............
