Forget Shark Week, it’s Bark Week on Mashable. Join us as we celebrate all the good dogs, which we humans do not deserve.
While people may never agree on the latest obnoxious Instagram update, there’s one thing everyone can agree on: dogs dominate the platform, and deservedly so.
But with so many dog accounts on the site, choosing which doge to follow can be tricky. To celebrate Bark Week, we compiled a list of the best doggos, puppers, and pupperinos to follow on Instagram.
From Doug the Pug to Winston the White Corgi, here are a few of the best borkers to ever grace us with their presence on social media.
1. Doug the Pug
Doug the Pug is one of the most popular pugs on the internet. As the self-described “King of Pop Culture,” Doug has more than 10 million followers across all of his social media accounts, and is mainly known for viral videos that parody shows and music videos. Doug is so incredibly popular that he’s posed with celebrities like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, and Halsey, and he even has his own line of merch and a book. Doug’s a very busy pupper, indeed.
Marnie the Dog is a 16-year-old rescue Shih Tzu known for her cute head tilt and elongated tongue. According to her owner Shirley, Marnie’s head tilt comes from a brush with Vestibular Syndrome, which can temporarily disrupt a dog’s ability to stay balanced. She’s just fine, though! Marnie has a devoted following of 2 million on Instagram and counting.
Cumlord is a Pomeranian with a very distinct internet personality. He’s extremely cute and floofy, and his posts are bizarrely meme-like. From beggin for “lööps,” to munching on “golden crunchy chimkin nuggets,” Cumlord is a walking viral video that’ll make you very confused and very happy.
Norbert is an adorable three-pound therapy dog who loves to give high fives and bring smiles to children in hospitals. With his signature elongated tongue, Norbert is worth a follow for his cuteness and his volunteer work.
6. Miss Asia
Miss Asia is Lady Gaga’s French bulldog and she is absolutely precious. When she isn’t modeling for magazine covers with her mother, she’s outside playing with her other Frenchie brothers, Koji and Gustavo. Be sure to catch up on her luxurious life by giving her a follow on Instagram.
Winston the White Corgi is a big ball of white floof. While most corgis have a white trim, Winston has defied genetics by having an all-white coat. He’s a very special doggo who loves to give his owner the “stank eye” whenever she comes home.
9. Menswear Dog
Menswear Dog is a particularly surrealist dog account on Instagram. The star of the account is Bodhi, a stylish Shiba Inu who looks like he came straight from a photoshoot. He may be a 10/10 on the fashion meter, but he is a 10,000/10 on the good boy scale.
Jiffpom is a unique looking pupper with more than 28 million followers across multiple social platforms. He’s best known for his bobblehead appearance, and his incredible ability to execute a flawless handstand.
10. Bearcoat Tonkey
Bearcoat Tonkey is a wrinkly boy who loves plenty of cuddles and snoozes. His mushy look is typical of a bear-coat shar-pei, but from the looks of it, he’s anything but ferocious.
11. Pooch of NYC
Agador, a.k.a. the Pooch of NYC is known as the “Bob Ross” of dogs for his similar appearance to the famous American Painter. He is always very fashionable, and keeps his hair in perfect condition for every picture that’s taken of him.
12. Loki the Wolfdog
Loki the Wolfdog is a big doggo with an even bigger following. As a husky, malamute, and Arctic wolf mix, he’s a huge dog who loves spending time outdoors. He travels a lot with his owner Kelly Lund, they take plenty of beautiful photos to share with their 1.7 million followers on Instagram.
Tuna is a Instagram famous dachshund-chihuahua mix who’s stolen the hearts of his almost 2 million followers. His overbite and squinty eyes make him irresistible, and his cute outfits just enhance his handsome appearance.
Maya the Samoyed is a very vocal dog. In most of her videos, you’ll find her eating lots of food and interacting with her owner through various borks. She also likes to dress up and show off all of her floofiness whenever she can.
16. The Dogist
So, we have decided that Finn is too good of a boy not to keep. Also, we’ve fallen in love with him. We originally planned to take him to LA to find him a home, but we didn’t make it that far – we decided to turn around at the Grand Canyon. We, like many fosters before us, realized that we couldn’t go back to life before Finn. He had simply become part of our family. So, although the road trip is over, our journey with Finn has really just begun. So get ready to watch this good boy continue to grow up! We’ve created a separate account for him, called @KeepingFinn, where you can follow his daily life with his new proud father, Henry, brother to Elias (The Dogist). Cheers to @TheSatoProject and everyone who made this #RescueRide possible – we’re super excited to begin this new phase of life with a dog (finally) and stay tuned for more very exciting news coming soon!
The Dogist is a photo-documentary series that compiles pictures of doggo, puppers, and pupperinos from over 50 different cities. Each post has a little story or blurb about the featured dog, and the account shares new posts almost daily. This one is definitely worth a follow if you want to see different dogs on your feed everyday.
While these are just a few of the best borkers on Instagram, there are plenty more good boys and girls that deserve all the love, likes, and follows as well. The hashtag #DogsOfInstagram is a fun place to start.
