Özil and what appears to be his pet dog are pictured hugging each other while they sleep.
The 26-year-old seems to have a soft spot for animals, especially dogs and lions.
Özil actually believes a lion best represents him, he has a tattoo of the king of the jungle on his arm and often shares images of the animal on his social media channels.
“I see myself as a bit of a Lion,” Özil said speaking to Fanatik.
“Lions protect their family, they are like a king.”
The 26-year-old attacking midfielder has a huge social media following.
The World Cup winner has 8.9 million Twitter followers and almost 26 million Facebook likes making him the most followed Arsenal player on social media networks.
The record £42.5 million Arsenal signing has three assists and three goal in 12 appearances for the Gunners this season.
