8 Instagram-Famous Dogs You Should Be Following
By Caroline Giddis
You did it! You made it through the first half and now the weekend is in sight. Just in case you’re feeling a little sluggish making it through the day, here are some super cute Instagram-famous dogs to show you that life isn’t just about the grades you make, but the chances you take. If these dogs hadn’t created an Instagram profile, they may never have been as successful as they are today (as in thousands of followers on social media sites and nominees and winners at the World Dog Awards). Here are the top eight dogs you should be following on Instagram:
World Dog Awards: Nominated for “Most Pawpular” award
Toast, a toothless puppy mill sweetheart rescued by “Z-list celeb” @thefatjewish. Her tongue forever hangs out because she doesn’t have teeth, but it’s incredibly adorable. She has two siblings: Muppet and Pants, who make appearances on her Snapchat all the time. Toast makes appearances all over the country, but she’s probably most famous for her Karen Walker sunglasses ad. Toast even got married a few weeks ago to Finn Hearts (@friendsoffinn), and wedding gifts went to puppy mill rescue shelters and supplies for rescue pups.
Geordi La Corgi
Although Geordi is a lesser known Insta-dog with only 148 thousand followers (oh), that doesn’t mean he lacks in quality or cuteness. His photos are simple and sophisticated, and many times include Geordi wearing a fancy new outfit or running on the beach. Just like his motto says on Facebook, “…to boldly go where no corgi has gone before,” Geordi is a no-nonsense pup just living his life.
Manny the Frenchie
World Dog Awards: Winner of “Most Pawpular” award
Manny the Frenchie, the adorable and outgoing philanthropist pup from Chicago, will steal your heart as soon as you scroll through his page. Manny is constantly smiling and always hanging out with other Insta-famous pups or showing off the latest gadget as a brand ambassador. There are tons of videos on his Instagram because Manny is a master of “frenchie talk,” a mixture of adorable growling and squeaking.
Samson the Goldendoodle
The biggest ball of fluff and love, Samson is one pup you want to follow. He’s the ultimate bro, always posting pics with his friends grabbing a beer or hanging out with a lady (we see you, Samson). He also has the widest variety of pajamas we’ve ever seen, including both flannels and robes. Samson may try to act cool, but he can’t get over the fact that he’s basically a giant snuggly teddy bear (sorry buddy).
Chloe the Mini Frenchie
Looks like we need to take more tips from Chloe, because she’s probably the most fashionable pup on the internet. Wearing designer sweaters and prancing around NYC, Chloe is the city girl we all aspire to be. She’s also super active on Snapchat, where you can get an inside look at the different events and photoshoots Chloe goes to, which are all fabulous. Some of Chloe’s best pics include and Winnie the Pooh outfit, a stack of Barneys New York bags, and tons of lazy day snuggle shots.
World Dog Awards: Nominated for “Dog of the Year” award
This trendsetter and Insta-famous Shiba Inu, Bodhi, is known as “The Most Stylish Dog in the World”. And let me tell you — he kills it. From pocket squares to leather jackets, Bodhi has got this dog fashion thing figured out. Not to mention he has the best facial expressions of any dog out there. Follow Bodhi to see what your guy friends should be wearing (thanks, Bodhi).
Doug the Pug
World Dog Awards: Winner of “Best Dressed” award
Basically your ideal BFF, Doug the Pug is all of us. Whether he’s wrapped in five blankets, or trying to use The Force to bring pizza to the couch, Doug’s life is totally relatable — besides the fact that he’s a super famous, award-winning pug. Doug is “The King of Pop Culture” and the perfect star in movie or TV show spoofs, especially “Fresh Pug of Bel-Air” and “Pug’s Anatomy.” Although he takes on tons of different personas, Doug is just your average pug who loves Netflix, “me time” in the bathtub, and most of all: food.
Ella Bean the Dog
Ella Bean is the tiniest, but most stylish of all the Insta-dogs in this list. If she hangs out with Toast and Chloe, you know she’s got to be a fashionista too. Living in Brooklyn with a love for Rosé, Ella knows the way to our hearts. She smaller than most textbooks, but she’s got enough attitude for two German Shepherds. Always traveling around the country being fabulous with her friends, Ella Bean will show you what #squadgoals really means.
