10 Pet Influencers to Follow on Instagram

It’s no secret that pets have taken over Instagram and they’re getting a lot of attention. Obviously. They’re cute, cuddly and fun to watch. And I’d be lying if I said that watching kittens wobble around doesn’t comfort my exhausted mind.

But why am I using the word “influencer”?

We’ve been watching funny animal videos on YouTube forever, but pet influencers? That’s a new term. Some owners created an Instagram account for their pet...just for fun. Because that’s what many people have been doing for some time on social media.

What started as a joke became serious when this account began to attract everyone’s attention. 50 followers consisting of the owners, some of their friends and a few people from the outside world somehow transformed into 2 million followers, crazy numbers of likes on every post and fans from all over the world. That’s the story of Coby and many other pet influencers. 

Sometimes, social media can seem overwhelming, full of negative messages and harsh comparisons, but these examples prove that it has something pretty great to offer, as well. Don’t we all deserve to see something sweet and positive? I truly think we do. Let’s look at these 10 Instagram profiles that will bring a smile to your face whenever you need it.

1. Coby The Cat

@cobythecat

1.8M followers on Instagram

Coby is a British Shorthair with the most beautiful blue eyes. He’s one of those cats, whose owners started the profile for fun. There was no marketing goal intended, but he quickly became famous.

They started the profile in 2015. You can see how the posts have changed over time - as Coby got more popular, the photos started to look more professional and from time to time, you can even spot an ad. Despite this, I must say that his photos are still super cute.

2. Tuna

@tunameltsmyheart

2.1M followers on Instagram

I bet you know Tuna. Tuna is a 9-year-old Chiweenie known for his overbite. His previous owner left him on the street and then he was adopted by a lady, who decided to share photos and videos of Tuna, on Instagram...which kind of made him an internet celebrity.

Tuna is not just a dog. He’s a star and a famous meme. It’s his funny grin and joyful personality that have made him so adored by his fans and followers. He doesn’t even know what a great influencer he is, as he sets the perfect example of a pet celeb and shows that it’s okay to be different.

3. Maya The Samoyed 

@mayapolarbear

1.9M followers on Instagram

Just look at her and you’ll know why her nickname is “Polar Bear”. Maya is a 3-year-old white cloud who can make your day by just being there. She doesn’t have to do much to make you fall in love with all the fluff, however, she’s a very smart and well-trained dog. Besides that, she always looks like she’s smiling. You simply can’t not adore her.

Most of the posts are videos - videos of Maya doing some “tricks”, themed funny vlogs, TikToks and videos including the things her owners are promoting at the moment.

4. Jiffpom

@jiffpom 

10M followers on Instagram

Jiffpom is a Pomeranian and he kinda looks like a teddy bear. Sometimes, when you see him in a photo, you have to look at it for a while, because he really seems to be a living plush toy. This tiny bear is quite a celebrity. He’s made appearances on many talk shows, interviews, and other celebrities’ posts and he also starred in Katy Perry’s Dark Horse music video in 2014.

It’s safe to say that he’s one of the most famous animals on Instagram. You can often spot him doing tricks in his posts, and wait for it...Jiffpom is a three-time Guinness World Record holder for being the fastest dog on two paws. You can’t just make that up.

5. Juniper The Fox

@juniperfoxx

2.9M followers on Instagram

Juniper is also known as the “Happiest fox”. Yes, she’s a pet fox. It’s not usual for red foxes to be pets, but Juniper was born in captivity and can’t be released into the wild because of her genetic differences.

She was adopted by a kind family that takes care of many animals who come from bad conditions or are unable to survive in the wild. Juniper now lives in a house with another fox, a dog, a cat and any other animal that is taken in by the family for shelter.

Look at her profile to see behind the scenes of the cute fox pictures. It’s not all sunshine but it’s definitely interesting!

6. Doug The Pug

@itsdougthepug

3.9M followers on Instagram

Who’s Doug? Doug is the King of Pop Culture, a Tik Toker, People’s Choice Award Winner and that’s only what his Insta bio says. Doug is also a cute Pug winning people’s hearts on the internet. He’s sweet, funny and one of the more popular Instagram pets.

There’s a Stories Highlight called “CELEB FRIENDS” in his profile, and it’s exactly what it says – a Highlight of Doug’s celebrity friends (or even fans), Shakira, T-Pain, Cole Sprouse, Katy Perry, Zedd, the Stranger Things cast, they all wanted to take a picture with a famous dog. I’m not sure you can get a picture with Doug, but what you can get for sure, is his merch. Walk around in a cute t-shirt with funny Pug puns. See? It’s really possible to make a hit out of anything.

7. Louboutina

@louboutinanyc

193 thousand followers on Instagram

Louboutina is the least famous pet we’ve talked about so far, but it’d be unfair to leave her out. “The Hugging Dog”, that’s what most people know her as. 

The affectionate 8-year-old Golden Retriever, Louboutina is famous for hugging strangers on the street. She and her owner walk around the city and try to spread happiness by letting Louboutina embrace people and it seems like it makes her happy too.

Although she doesn’t have that many followers, she was included in many news broadcasts and was recently a co-host of the Tamron Hall Show. 

Would you hug a dog like this in the street? I know I would.

8. Alfie The Alpaca

@alfie_the_alpaca_in_adelaide 

522 thousand followers on Instagram

Did you know that you can have a pet alpaca? I had no idea, and there’s probably nothing cuter than this mass of fluff. Alfie is a 2-year-old alpaca living in a house with one Australian couple. But their story? You definitely want to hear it. Here goes...

Once upon a time, a man decided to make life more fun. He adopted a baby alpaca and named him Alfie. His wife didn't know about it and wanted to kill her husband for a while. But it was impossible not to love Alfie, so they lived happily ever after. Seriously. He’s a family member now.

Do you still doubt that you can have an alpaca as a pet? Just go through their profile. They walk him on a leash, he sleeps on the carpet in front of their sofa, he likes to honk and cuddle all the time and seems to be the happiest when walking along the shore or jumping around with dog friends in a park.

I really hope he’s living his best life!

9. Loki The Wolfdog

@loki

2M followers on Instagram

If you love dogs and traveling, stop searching for the best account to follow right now. You just found it. Loki is a husky – an arctic wolf – malamute mix. His owner took him in during a blizzard in 2012 when he was just a puppy and they’ve been traveling together ever since.

Loki is a really beautiful dog. It’s not a surprise that they were able to build a whole brand around him – “Loki the Wolfdog” – a brand with apparel, stylish accessories, prints and presets, all with an adventurous design; and the second brand – “Loki Naturals” – with natural pet products.

If you’re looking for a profile that’s full of dog pictures, meaningful messages and aesthetics, this is the one.

10. Puddin

@mydearpuddin

144 thousand followers on Instagram

I decided to mention this pup for one good reason. The reason is the powerful message this strong girl is sending: Having imperfections or disabilities doesn’t make you any less.

Her photos may not make you “aww” the way that Coby does, maybe the “aww” is even pity-drawn. But it’s worth a moment to stop and admire how able Puddin, the sweetest dog with no eyes to see with, but the warmest heart to love with, is. Her former owner didn’t take good care of her and after she was rescued, they saved her life, but couldn’t save her eyes.

She is happy, cheerful and curious. She’s able to fetch, play with other dogs and learn new things, just like any other dog. And that melts my heart.

We’ve gone through some of my favorite profiles, but the truth is, there are too many for an article. To sum this up, I think that if I decided to create a profile for my dog, her puppy eyes would most likely get 100 times more likes and followers than my face. The world is crazy. Not just because dogs are now influencers and make money on Instagram, but also because you can make your pet squirrel (or a pet ant, I guess) famous worldwide. The world is crazy and we love it.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
