She's got style, she's got grace, she's also an Afghan hound who has more online fans than most internet celebrities!

Tea, the five-year-old black Afghan hound, went viral earlier this year and the photo has has been shared more than a million times.

Owner Luke Kavanagh, from Oyster Bay, says his family is lapping up the dog's celebrity status.

"We always thought that she was far too pretty to keep at home," he says.

"Even our weekend walks draw a crowd. She pretends she doesn't need the attention, but she definitely loves it, just like any supermodel."

Tea enjoyed a successful career as a show dog but, since her formal show retirement, her popularity has grown.

A few advertising companies even approached Kavanagh to use Tea as the official face of their brands, which sparked her second career as an animal actor.

Tea has now appeared in an online and TV campaign for Harriot and Hounds' dog perfume and is the "spokesdog" for Royal Canine, the luxury dog food brand.

We love her beautiful coat!
