Louboutina is a Golden retriever who could pass as a local celebrity in NYC, with a huge following on social media.
On her Instagram profile she has more than 189k followers.
Louboutina, who is named after a French shoe designer, spends around 2 hours a day hugging people she meets during her daily walks.
Her owner, 45-year-old Fernandez-Chavez, explained: “It’s just not a regular walk. 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.”Her owner explained how it all started back in 2014 on Valentine’s Day: “She started sitting up and grabbing my hands with both of her paws, and then crossing the other paw over her paw. I remember joking with my friends, ‘At least I have someone to hold hands with during Valentine’s.’”
If you ever happen to be in New York City, all you have to do is drop an e-mail to her owner, Fernandez-Chavez, and you can get a hug yourself.

Starting the week with hugs! 🤗 Repost via @madaniellaalerocio Our reina, diva, hermosa and symbol of kindness and love in a busy rushy noisy City. Love you, @louboutinanyc ❤️❤️❤️ it is amazing to see how happy she is, and I swear the energy she gives with these hugs are from another world. Dogs have so much to teach us… they get famous and they’re just the same cute lovely fur bag they were of they were totally anonymous… humans get a little bit of status and it can already be toxic 😰 thank you for reminding us of kindness and essence, Loubie!! And Cesar, you are such a generous and nice human being, I wish you all the best in life and hope to see you in Guadalajara soon!! . . . #imetmyidol #fan #bigfan #mydiva #bestbeingever
