Scrolling through the internet can sometimes be more harmful than good, especially when one comes across the latest articles on politics or drama on their social media newsfeeds. But what if checking social media didn’t necessarily have to always feel as toxic? I think that every now and then, the world could use some more good doggos. One way to do this is to follow some of them on social media! Instagram is a great place to start since there are active accounts for almost every breed of dog imaginable.
Dogs are a simple reminder that there is good in the world (even if it’s just a cheerful pup on your timeline). There are so many good accounts on Instagram; owners usually post pictures, videos and stories on a daily basis with clever captions that almost convince you that the doggo itself is instagramming rather than its owner (key word being almost). In order to give you posts that you truly look forward to seeing, read on to find the best Instagram doggos to follow.
The Golden Ratio 4
If you love Golden Retrievers, I definitely recommend this Instagram account. It not only has one Golden Retriever, but five! The names of them are Maggie, Jasmine, Hopper, Venkman and Queso, the family’s latest adopted doggo. I won’t lie, I would definitely love having a dog named Queso.
Pictures of these doggos are posted daily; their group photographs are iconic at this point as their account bolsters a following of over 10,000 people.
My favorite thing about this account is the distinct personalities of both the doggos and the owner, who is even known for making the doggos waffles. How cute is that? These goldenretrievers can be found @thegoldenratio4.
Doug the Pug
Doug the Pug is a pretty famous doggo on all social media platforms. I recommend following him for his funny and relatable captions alone. Doug is usually found posting about his love for pizza, and his photos are just the icing on the cake.
I’m sure that he will steal your heart just like he has already stolen the hearts of over three million people on Instagram alone. To follow Doug on Instagram, his username is @itsdougthepug.
King Fraser & Princess Fiona
King Fraser and Princess Fiona happen to be the two Australian Shepherds of YouTuber Sasha Alsberg, the best-selling author of the book, “Zenith.” King Fraser and Princess Fiona, who live in England, are quite the pair and definitely worth the follow.
To find their account, which has over 19,000 followers, type in their current username @fraserandfiona.
Zira the Corgi
Have you seen that picture of that dog happily sitting in a red cart in Target? Zira the Corgi would happen to be that dog. She is generally a happy pup, whether at home in Monterey, California, or in a cart at Target.
Zira currently has over 54,000 followers on Instagram. To become one of them, you can follow her @zirathecorgi.
Sir Charles Barkley the Frenchie
Sir Charles Barkley the Frenchie is a French Bulldog who resides in Seattle, Washington. Follow him for photos of his adventures and to see which onesie, sweater or bowtie he is currently wearing.
Like many other doggos, his latest post shows him ready for the Super Bowl, an idea I think is pretty clever. To become one of his 478,000 followers, follow him at @barkleysircharles.
Corgnelius & Stumphrey
I would recommend following Corgnelius and Stumphrey for their names alone since they are pretty fantastic. According to their Instagram bio, the two corgis are known for “waddlin’ around Los Angeles,” an accurate description since corgis literally waddle around when they go from one place to the next.
Many of Corgnelius and Stumphrey’s photos feature them napping or being absolutely cozy. This is a lifestyle that many college students can get behind. To follow Corgnelius and Strumphrey, find them at @corgnelius.
Marnie the Dog
Marnie the dog is a 16-year-old Shih Tzu who was adopted at the age of 11. I would recommend following Marnie since older doggos are under-appreciated. Plus, she truly is a cutie! At 2.1 million followers, everyone can probably all agree that she is very popular.
However, the last update on her Instagram says that she had to take a little break because of a bacterial infection. Here’s to hoping that Marnie will be back on the ‘gram soon. If you are interested in following her on Instagram and seeing her latest adventures, her username is @marniethedog.
Dean the Bassett
If you want to follow a doggo with droopy ears, Dean the Bassett Hound is your guy. He is a three-year-old Bassett from Toronto, Canada, with 224,000 followers.
In his Instagram posts, you can see him next to a plate of nachos, enjoying the snow and even taking a nap. If you wish to follow Dean, his username is @deanthebassett.
Tuna the Chiweenie
According to their Instagram bio, Tuna the Chiweenie is a dog to follow if “you could use a little bit of joy and laughter.” Tuna is known for her underbite, and while some might say that makes her look less cute or even ugly, I think that is her signature look.
Tuna is a doggo that is sure to truly brighten your day as well as the day of her almost two million Instagram followers. To follow Tuna the Chiweenie, you can find her @tunameltsmyheart.
The Instagram doggos listed above are some of the best on the internet. They have more followers than most humans could ever dream of having, a fact justified because they bring so much joy and happiness to people’s lives.
