We’re going to cut to the chase for this one. The Year of the Dog is upon us, and we’re sure you’ve heard the many dog puns (we’re guilty of this too), and have been hounded by the many dog-themed red packets and Lunar New Year songs.
We also know that visiting, though necessary, can be a bit of a drag, but at least we’ll have good ol’ social media to keep us company (p.s. for tips to save data, read here).
So, we’ve shortlisted ten Instagram dogs (celebs, really) from around the world that are so barking cute that they’ll turn any ruff situation into a happy one.
It’s really the leash we could do.
From: San Francisco
Breed: Shih Tzu
Fun Fact: This adorable blonde brownie is one of the best things to happen to Instagram. He loves food and hates squirrels. Look out for his #teethouttuesday and #fridaymomentofzen posts!
From: Tokyo, Japan
Breed: Shiba Inu
Fun Fact: With 2.6 million followers, Marutaro really makes you wonder what you’re doing with your life. Oh yeah, he’s also been the face of Japan tourism, and there’s a museum dedicated to him.
From: Denver, Colorado
Fun Fact: Loki’s feed features him against stunning nature backdrops… think mountains, forests and waterfalls. Mad photography props to his owner.
From: Seoul, South Korea
Fun Fact: This sister duo’s antics are so entertaining that they will have you glued to their feed for hours. One is good natured, obedient and smart. The other, well, a little rascal. You get the idea.

Breed: Bernese Mountain Dog
Fun Fact: Bear really is the size of an actual baby bear, but he’s just 10 months old! With bear-like paws and a big goofy grin, all you’ll want to do is run over and give him a huge hug.
From: Nothern California
Fun Fact: Corgi lovers! We’re sure brothers Ralph and George aren’t strangers to you. Three years ago, they made waves when Buzzfeed released a video of a boyfriend surprising his girlfriend with a visit from these lovable creatures.
These social media celebrity dogs are also putting their fame towards a good cause! They recently produced a 2018 calendar (full of their adorable pictures of course), and all proceeds raised were donated to dog charities.

From: Busan, South Korea
Fun Fact: This is an account that keeps on giving, by means of multiple posts a day with great content. P.S. The rounder one’s name is Gom, and that means Bear in Korean. A dog named bear… that’s enough reason to follow, yes?
Happy and smiley all the time!! … more like when daddy has treats in his hands 😅😅 A post shared by 🍟Buddy, Meeko & Bentley🍟 (@potatobudds) on
From: Melbourne, Australia
Fun Fact: These doggos have forever cheerful faces. If you’re having a bad day, their smiles are sure to brighten it up!
From: Delray Beach, Florida
Breed: French Bulldog
Fun Fact: What’s better than one French bulldog… two French bulldogs! In addition to the many cute outfits sported, this feed also has a great aesthetic. It’s clean, minimalist and bright. Talk about having a great design eye!
Wishing the best for everyone in 2018! Cheers to you all 🎊⭐️🍾 A post shared by Brinkley The Golden (@brinkleygolden_official) on
From: Lakewood, California
Breed: Golden Retriever
Fun Fact: Well, a picture speaks a thousand words.
Here’s wishing you a pawsperous new year!
