F1 star Lewis Hamilton is accompanied by his dog Roscoe around the world during his race weekends. Roscoe is a regular face in the paddock and is one of the most loved characters in the Silver Arrows garage. He has been a part of the Hamilton family since 2013. Lewis brought another bulldog into the family the same year-Coco.

Hamilton even asked for a pass from former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone back then to bring the two bulldogs along in the paddock. Well, Bernie obviously gave the approval as Roscoe (and Coco) were seen at many races since then. Sadly, in 2020 Coco died of a heart attack.

Roscoe has an Instagram page and enjoys a popular fanbase. He has at least 420k followers as of now, including F1 driver Pierre Gasly and others. It might surprise many readers but Roscoe also earns handsomely from his modeling gigs.

How much does Lewis Hamilton’s beloved dog Roscoe earn?

Fans can clearly witness Roscoe’s popularity from his social media following. Since 2018 Roscoe has been a model and, according to Lewis, has been earning $700 a day from his modeling gigs.

“Roscoe is now part of a modeling agency and he has auditions, he will go up against ten or 15 different bulldogs, they will need a bulldog for a product,” Lewis explained as reported by Silver Arrows.

His career doesn’t come as a surprise as both of Roscoe’s parents themselves are dog show champions. “He gets paid $700 dollars a day, it’s ridiculous, and he gets his treat, he loves it,” he added.

Roscoe had also converted into a fully vegan diet recently ailing to several health issues.

“It has changed his life. He now doesn’t have any breathing issues. His throat is no longer restricted, and he doesn’t overheat like he did before and he loves to run. He also has no allergy issues,” 

“He’s like a puppy again! It’s been amazing to see these changes in Roscoe and I’m so grateful to be able to share this,” told Lewis.
