1. Brother Cream

When it comes to famous Hong Kong pets, nobody can top Brother Cream.

The popular cat boasts 43,600-plus followers on Instagram and over ten thousand fans on Facebook.

3. Coby and Aki

Winning the hearts of now 61,000 followers, bona fide dogfluencers Coby the Samoyed and Aki the Shiba Inu must credit their healthy following to their overwhelming abundance of (combined) fluff.

Long and lean Whippets Wagyu and Walnut are often spotted trotting around Star Street, frequenting dog-friendly hotspots such as design store Kapok or sniffing eagerly at Honbo’s The Chicken Bar pop-up offerings. They also often model professionally with brands such as Goyard, which keeps their scarf and leash collection stylish.

 

5. Maru, Mini and Mungmung

Aspiring hypebeasts Maru, Mini and Mungmung always look effortlessly fresh — whether it’s an Aape hoodie or a Supreme sweatshirt or a pair of John Lennon shades. The three British Shorthairs are typically seen chilling out in limited edition shopping bags, sneaker boxes, or designer pet beds.

 

6. Casper

It’s hard to resist the goofy smile of a big fleecy Samoyed — here, Casper has us falling hook, line and sinker, with the help of his gang of Bichon Frise friends. Named after a friendly ghost (the greatest ever seen in cinema, I might add), it’s no wonder he’s such a popular guy.

 

7. Yoshi

Living my best life 🚤

A post shared by Yoshi (@shiba_adventures) on

When Yoshi the Shiba isn’t trekking through Hong Kong’s backyard trails, he’s enjoying the ocean breeze on a boat — one of his favourite ways to spend a weekend, even when he dislikes the water. Watch him get into all sorts of chaos, mostly involving him trying to sneak a bite from his mum’s snacks.

 

8. King King

A list of internet-approved pets wouldn’t be complete without a Corgi. Check out King King’s happy smiles, well-kept coat… and that irresistible bum loaf.

 

9. Akira

This handsome black Shiba is always seducing the camera with his devilish grin — and his 14,600 followers are obsessed, naturally. You’ll also catch the pup on a number of branding campaigns around town — he even has his own Line stickers and cute merch for sale.

 

10. Whiskey

This little Yorkshire Terrier gets into plenty of trouble while documenting all the fun against some of Hong Kong’s best scenery. Catch him with the wind in his fur on a junk, wooing the ladies at colourful Choi Hung Estate, or at a ‘pawty’ with his fellow Hong Kong Yorkie mates.
