Instagram seems to be dominated by food, celebrities, and exotic locations! But dog videos have also become a popular staple of the photo sharing site.
In almost every culture, dogs are considered some of the cutest, most approachable pets across the world…so it’s no surprise that Instagram users love spending their downtime relaxing to some dog videos! There are so many precious animals to follow on Instagram, but there are a couple especially cute dogs that have caught our eye over the years.
Here are a couple adorable pooches and dog accounts to check out on IG:
The Dogist is a great IG account if you’re looking for a variety of cute and fluffy dogs. Each dog portrait captures the identity and spirit of the pup. As a documentary-based feed, it features random dogs in NYC. The photographer, Elias Weiss Friedman, is the author of the best selling and often humorous book, The Dogist: Photographic Encounters with 1,000 Dogs. It’s an insightful and entertaining look at all the friendly and eclectic faces. It makes follower realize how pup-friendly NYC really is — and we’re thankful for it!
Loki The Wolfdog
Elegant and whimsical, Loki is a beautiful husky/Arctic wolf/Malamute hybrid. Followers often find photos of Loki sledding, climbing, camping, or relaxing on the side of a mountain. Kelly Lund, the owner, says her and Loki are on a mission to inspire others to explore their world and make some exciting memories! Currently, the playful pup has over 1.4 million followers. And with so many majestic pictures of the wise and enchanting pup, it’s not hard to see why!
A Brooklyn, New York native, the Instagram star named Samson the Dood is as cute and cuddly as can be for a lovable pooch (which is a lot!). Samson is a golden retriever and poodle mix (called a golden doodle) who we love watching grow up! Many IG followers love him for his obedience, fun excursions, and sweet eyes. Samson’s owner often dresses up the pooch and you can find a lot of pictures of him reading the Sunday Styles, checking some email, or working out at the gym! With over 150,000 followers, he’s a great choice for those who are obsessed with dogs. Plus, you’ll find some quality photography skills and creative direction which makes following Samson even more entertaining! We can definitely tell Samson is an old soul and a star that will burn on forever!
Marnie the Dog
As one of the most popular dogs on Instagram, the 15-year-old Shih Tzu is beloved by many for her cuteness, but also her rags-to-riches story. Animal Control found her matted and dirty in Connecticut when she was 11 years old. Her caretakers thought she was blind in her left eye and also gave her the nickname stinky because she had a bad odor. However, Marnie’s current owners adopted her anyway. A vet had to remove 14 decayed teeth and finally her odor went away. But it turns out she wasn’t blind. In fact, soon after her adoption the cloudiness in her left eye disappeared! She went from being a homeless NYC dog to gaining 2.1 beloved Instagram followers. She is a great example of the benefits of animal adoption — upon both the pup and the owner. Marnie is sure to improve your day and get your tail wagging!
Doug the Pug
Doug the Pug is one of the most well-known Instagram dogs out there today. And he’s also one of the coolest. Doug does everything; he listens to music, hangs out with some wine, and his face seems to totally understand how we feel when we wake up in the morning. 2.4 million IG followers love following the everyday adventures of Doug also dubbed “The King of Pop Culture”. Fans can also buy Doug’s coloring book based on his excursions. We know you’ll love Doug the Pug as much as we do!
