The 20 Best Dog Instagrams to Follow


Cats may be the unofficial mascots of the interwebs, but everyone’s best doggie friends are starting to stake their claim in internet fame, too. After Jiffpom became an internet sensation (and probably one of your very first pup “likes”), pooches all over the globe also began to launch their own personal Instagrams (. . . er, their humans did because of that whole lack of an opposable thumb!). We’re embracing our internet pet obsession because we can’t get enough of their adorable, hilarious, and weird internet antics.

So, ready to bulk up your “following” list on Instagram? Check out the 20 of the best dog Instagrams that you should be following for your daily dose of adorable.

    Doug the Pug

    While most doggos can say they’re pals with the mailman, the kid next door, and that person walking down the sidewalk, this famous pug’s crew includes John Legend and Justin Bieber. Oh, and he’s also appeared in a Fall Out Boy video alongside Demi Lovato and was the subject of a TIME magazine feature. Needless to say, Doug the Pug, a pug from Nashville, Tennessee, has reached celebrity status.

    If Doug the Pug could talk, he’d probably also brag about his impressive social media following–with 3.8 million followers on Instagram alone–and multiple (yes, multiple) appearances in major music videos, daily talk shows, award shows, and more.

    Did you know the name Maya actually translates to “FLUFF?” OK, it doesn’t really, but dang this doggy is the definition of fluffy!

    Maya, a Samoyed with 1.9 million Instagram followers, loves to frolic in water fountains, nom on humans’ snacks, and balance dog treats on her head like a pro. Did we mention she’s also really, ridiculously fluffy? And guess what? There are more adventures to watch now that Maya has a new little brother, Michi, a small German spitz rescue and just as precious as his sister.

    Pavlov the Corgi

    @pavlovthecorgi / Instagram

    There are a few things, like cats, pizza, and corgis that make up the very being of the internet. And Pavlov, a Pembroke Welsh corgi from California, has this whole Instagram thing down. He has tons of contemplative photos in front of interesting, artsy walls, he’s been known to rock a flower crown, and he recently got one of those giant, inflatable unicorn pool toys that every Instagram influencer basically lives in during the summer. He shares his adventures with his brother, Maslow, a keeshond with more fluff than you can imagine. (Little Maslow has his own channel, too, so tune in for double the fun!)

    Chewie the Pomeranian

    @hi_im_chewie / Instagram

    It’s really hard to muster much enthusiasm when your co-worker wants a high-five, but if Chewie, the high-five Pomeranian, wanted one? You’d probably give him the happiest, most enthusiastic greeting of your life. Not only does Chewie post tons of pictures high-fiving, but he loves to rock the tiniest Hawaiian shirts, too. The tiny shirts alone are worth a follow.
