British Formula One star Lewis Hamilton's pet bulldog Roscoe is a model in Los Angeles and makes £530 (approx R48,500) per day. "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," Hamilton told British tabloid, The Sun.

Speaking to F1's Beyond The Grid podcast, Hamilton said that he got Roscoe's privates removed when he was younger. That led to him getting his dog's sperm frozen. "The reason I had to get him snipped, is because, the poor guy would wake up randomly and he would ejaculate everywhere. I can't not breed this boy, he is so handsome and has the kindest heart.

At some stage we will get some puppies, so probably once when I retire from racing and have a family, I am definitely getting more Roscoes," added Hamilton.
