There are now many pets that have become famous online, so much so that their social media pages often have more followers than many human celebrities. Although we have written about famous pets before, here we want to list the most famous on Facebook, the largest social platform in the world.
The pets in this article have become famous because of cute behaviors, weird facial features or because of inspiring stories. They have thousands of followers who keep track of them and their lives.
Famous pets on Facebook
Lil Bub is famous for having no teeth (they never grew in) and has as many as 3 million followers. It was precisely because he did not have teeth that he always stuck out his big, pink tongue. As if that wasn’t enough, he also had a fifth leg. Because of this, he was highly valued by his followers.
In fact, there is already a book about him and he has been in a movie, so his celebrity goes far beyond Facebook. Unfortunately, Lil Bub passed away in December 2019. He turned 8 years old.
This little dog has almost 400,000 followers on Facebook thanks to the heartbreaking experience he had with his owner.
The man was very depressed after breaking up with his girlfriend. So much so that he considered suicide. But Schoep inspired him to change. Later, when the dog contracted arthritis, the owner took him every day to the warm water of a nearby lake to relieve his pain.
Schoep died a while ago, and his owner sadly admits that the dog was the best thing that ever happened to him. If it were not for his dog, he would not be alive today.
This cat has over 200,000 followers and is known as “the blind cat”. He was rescued from a farm and his eyes were already gone. Those who found him did not hesitate to adopt him. Despite his disability, Oskar lived a completely normal life and got along well with his new “brother”, Klaus. He unfortunately passed away in 2018.
This cutie has over 400,000 followers on Facebook. The little Shih Tzun suffered from vestibular syndrome early in life, something that made all her teeth fall out and her head permanently tilt in one direction.
She was very flirtatious and loved to dress up. Sadly, she passed away on March 5, 2020. She turned 18 years old.
Famous Pets: Tuna
This dog already has about 300,000 followers on Facebook. Tuna is a mix between a chihuahua and a dachshund, but his underbite is so prominent and his chin so wrinkled that everyone who sees it immediately falls in love with him.
He was abandoned early in life because of these very traits.
Corgnelius and Stumphrey
Corgnelius and Stumphrey are two corgi siblings who look like identical twins. They love to pose for photos and have become very popular. Somehow they have even managed to launch a book about their lives!
They have over 70,000 followers and regularly upload new photos.
Famous Pets: Summary
These are just 6 of the most famous pets on Facebook. Of course, there are many other animals that also have a niche in social media.
What is strange is that their previous owners often got rid of them precisely for the traits that later made them famous. Fortunately, they have now found owners who love them in addition to their celebrity and financial benefits.
