Internet star: Senior wins hearts in beautiful picture

WHO says seniors aren't the leaders of the pack?!

A Sunshine Coast senior has become an internet star after he was photographed making friends with several dogs in Nambour.

The man, who isn't identified, seems to be the local dog whisperer as he sits in his motorized chair with one dog while several other canines gather around at his feet.

The beautiful photo was original shared by photographer Swirltography on Instgram where it was liked by 100 people.

However, the photo was then shared on online social forum Reddit, where it instantly caught fire, racking up over a 1100 comments.

"This old man visits my local dog park every day. He's the most popular human there," wrote the uploader, concrete_porridge.
