Stanley, the golden retriever, has been part of Megan Callahan’s family since 2019 after they returned from their honeymoon in Hawaii. The adorable little pup was 5 weeks old when they noticed that he had a Mohawk!
However, the cowlick or Mohawk disappeared for a few months before returning once again. Stanley has gained a lot of fame on the internet because of his unique hair style.
Megan Callahan told The Koala, “It [the Mohawk] disappeared and wasn’t very noticeable from months 2-6 and then it came back even bigger than before. His hair on the top of his head grows in the opposite direction so that’s where it came from. People started asking about his Mohawk in puppy training. We started calling him Stan the Mohawk man.”
People were really surprised when they saw Stanley, the Golden Retriever. His Mohawk made everyone very curious and they always asked the Callahan family whether they styled Stan’s hair purposefully like that.
“Stanley is hilarious and also very caring,” Megan further added. “He loves my husband and I so much and always likes to be included in everything we do. If we are hugging in the kitchen, Stanley will jump up and join in on the hug. Stanley’s ideal day would be swimming and diving for toys. He even goes underwater and his mohawk is just as pronounced when he’s wet.”
The cowlick on Stanley’s head makes it seem like he always has a bedhead. Megan also mentioned, “Stanley comes from a line of show dogs who compete in shows. Every litter has a boy and girl pick of the litter. The male puppy that’s the pick of the litter will be placed in a home to be trained to be a show dog. Stanley was a top 3 contender but with the cowlick, in his hair, they didn’t pick him so fortunate for us he was placed with us instead!!”
