Louboutina is New York City’s ever famous hugging dog. With over 58,000 followers on her Instagram account at this moment, she has surely won over netizens hearts all over the world!
Getting her name from the famous French shoe designer, this cuddly golden retriever spends at least 2 hours of her day hugging anyone she meets along the way.
“It’s not just a regular walk,” says her owner Fernandez Chavez, “It’s a walk with hugging! A lot of people say she’s made their day. Like, if they had a bad day at work, maybe that’s just what they needed.”
So where exactly did all the hugging started?
According to Chavez, it was Valentine’s Day in 2014 when he had just ended a relationship, Loubie then started to hold his hand, as if to comfort her human owner.
He even recalled exclaiming to his friends, ‘At least I have someone to hold hands with during Valentine’s!’”
Now Loubie continues to hug random strangers along the way during her daily walks, brightening up their day.
If ever you’re up in New York, you might encounter this adorable pup as she gives you a warm fuzzy hug!
