Instagram is one of the most popular social media channels. It’s a good way to connect and communicate or even build a community of people with the same interests. Many pet “pawrents” use Instagram as a place to share their love and showcase the cuteness of their fur babies and some even earned a fortune by doing so! They post cute photos and videos of their pets and some of these ‘pawty’ (pretty) dogs and cats became a worldwide sensation!
Here are the top 5 most beloved pets on Instagram based on their followers! (Data collected on 9 February 2022)
Maru is a Shiba-Inu dog living in Tokyo, Japan. He’s known for his kind and gentle attitude and his smiling face. Maru’s dad, Shinjiro Ono, got him from a pet shop after all the other puppies were sold, except for Maru. They became each other’s best friends. For being the last dog left in the shop, Maru’s doing pretty well for himself and his papa. Nowadays, Maru’s fame isn’t limited to only Japan but across the world! This super star Shiba-Inu now has his own store called “Gallery Marusan”, in Bunkyo City, Tokyo!
