9 Rising Instagram Dog Accounts You Need to Follow, Stat
Whenever InStyle has an excuse to celebrate dogs, we're there. In honor of National Puppy Day today, March 23, we're raising a bone to our animal BFFs.
Not everyone has the pleasure of keeping canine company on a daily basis, but the next best thing? Vicariously experiencing it through Instagram. Chances are if you're a dog person (or a cat person who still has an appreciation for pooches), you've come across the social platform's biggest stars. Among them are the likes of Maru Taro the Shiba Inu—who boasts 2.5 million followers @marutaro—or Tuna and his beloved overbite with 1.8 million followers @tunameltsmyheart.

However, there are still plenty of under-appreciated and under-the-radar accounts belonging to current and former puppies. Unlike Instagram's Marus and Tunas, these pups have yet to hit even 200 thousand followers. Will that change after National Puppy Day? Scroll down, drop a follow, and stay tuned.
