Throughout time, many dogs have risen to fame, through movies, social media, commercials or the Internet in general. While every dog is special in our book, we’ve picked a few of our favorites to share with you below! Learn more about these famous dogs who stole our hearts.
Tuna the Chiweenie
The first pup on our list is Tuna the Chiweenie. A mix between a Chihuahua and a Dachshund, Tuna was rescued in 2010 at a Farmers Market in Los Angeles as a four-month-old puppy. A year after Tuna’s adoption, his owner, Courtney, created the Instagram account @tunameltsmyheart. His exaggerated overbite and recessed jawline quickly caught the attention of Instagram users, skyrocketing him into doggy fame, collecting near 2 million followers to date.
Marnie the Dog
Marnie, a 16-year-old Shih Tzu who was adopted from a shelter at age 11, is definitely one of the most well-known Instagram pups. With over 2.1 million followers, Marnie is recognized for her tongue that is almost always hanging outside of her mouth, as well as her permanent head tilt due to a medical condition. She is known for her charming Instagram videos and is frequently photographed with adoring celebrities, including Ed Sheeran and Jimmy Kimmel.
How could we not put Toto on this list? Known for her adorable role in The Wizard of Oz, Toto, whose real name was Terry, was a Cairn Terrier born in the midst of the Great Depression. Her salary of $125 a week was frequently more than that of her fellow human co-stars of the time! Sadly, Terry died at the age of 11 in Hollywood, but there is a permanent memorial in her honor located at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
Boo the Pomeranian
Boo was one of the first dogs to make it big on the Internet. With his Facebook page garnering 17 million likes, Boo has been featured on red carpets and has even been called “the cutest dog in the world!” His iconic, fluffy haircut is hard to miss, and he can frequently be seen getting into mischief on his Facebook page. He has even had several books written about him – we’d say that’s one successful pup!
