Newfoundlanders have quite the personalty-even their dogs are flamboyant and colourful!
Meet Finn, a five-year-old Australian cattle dog, he just entered the race for Mayor of St. John’s, NF.
He even has endorsements:
“A lot of people are saying he’s the best candidate,” Glenn Redmond, Finn’s owner, said during an interview Tuesday.
Redmond — a 48-year-old animal trainer and stunt performer — said Finn is an accomplished actor, having appeared on the television show “Republic of Doyle.”
He conceded Finn’s name won’t actually be on the ballot. Finn’s job is to inspire the people around St. John’s to get out and exercise their right to vote! The 4 legged celebrity will soon be featured in another video asking local residents who they are voting for in the municipal election on Sept. 26.
The campaign drew media attention that was magnified after it was endorsed by Ellen DeGeneres and CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
