In the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City, there’s a new attraction that’s drawing people’s attention.
The Chelsea area is known for its hip restaurants and nice boutique stores, but neither of those things compare to its newest addition: a dog who loves to give hugs.
Louboutina, or Loubie, as she’s known, has turned into a complete celebrity. The golden retriever has over 58,000 Instagram followers, but it’s her hugs that keep her followers coming back to see her photos time and again.
Loubie’s owner, a 45-year-old man named Cesar Fernandez-Chavez, brings her for two-hour walks every day, but Loubie spends a lot of that time hugging strangers.
“It’s just not a regular walk,” Fernandez-Chavez told The Dodo.“It’s a walk with hugging.”
He also said that Loubie is known for making people’s days better she’s able to connect with them on an emotional level and knows exactly what they need.
Take a look at the adorable photo evidence of this huggable dog, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
