A self-confessed Lion King fan, when Julia Maria Werner, a German photographer, found a scruffy little homeless puppy scrounging for food in a garage in Spain, she felt she had found her little Simba.

Totally enamored by the cute little thing, she ended up bringing him back home to Germany and lovingly named him, Tschikko Leopold von Werner.

Tschikko’s lion-like features were absolutely apparent to Julia so much so that she ended up making him a matching mane with some leftover fabric.

And then came the magic in the form of this brilliant photo series titled the ‘Big City Lion’. Check it out below! 🙂

Started off as a just-for-fun project, this photo series made Tschikko an overnight internet star.

The similarities between Tschikko and Simba seem uncanny now, isn’t it? In fact, Julia asserts that little kids even ask her if he is a real lion.

For Julia, this photo series is also an opportunity for her to showcase what a brave little dog Tschikko is, and how far he has come from his humble beginnings.

I’m a true blue gypsy at heart. YES is my buzzword. Planning a travel adventure? You can always count me in. Treat me to good food, and you can be my friend forever. Fashion has been my guilty pleasure ever since I was a little girl who loved poring over the sparkling jewels and opulent gowns of Disney princesses. Keeping fit and showing love to my body is what keeps me feeling good. I LOVE those looooong discussions and stimulating experiences concerning spirituality, religion, and things beyond – the explorer in me is forever fascinated by these. A neuroscientist-turned-writer-turned-online marketer, my little 5-year-old career has seen me wearing multiple hats. In my world, there are no rules chiefly because I ain’t got no motivation to make or break ‘em.
