Fenton and owner Max shot to fame last week after Fenton was filmed forcing a herd of deer through a road in south west London’s Richmond Park, his owner giving chase while yelling out his illustrious pet’s name.

The footage of Fenton’s herding endeavours has become a youtube sensation, and a warning has been issued reminding dog owners they could face prosecution for failing to control their pets.

A friend of the family and the father of two has said: “Max is mortified. Fenton’s a lively dog but he’d never done anything like this before.

“Max won’t be taking him back to Richmond Park anytime soon and is considering giving him a new name if the fuss goes on.”

The incident has already sparked a raft of online spoofs, the pick of the bunch being Fenton In London, riffing on horror classic An American Werewolf in London, and a Jurassic Park-themed video with Fenton chasing a herd of dino-beasts.
