Since its initial release in October 2010, social networking platform, Instagram has ballooned to more than 150 million monthly active users, with many of them being celebrities. Just as enamored as well all are, celebrities are posting photo and video glimpses into their personal, everyday lives. Celebrity selfies from Instagram icons like Lena Dunham, Amanda Seyfried, and Taylor Swift can exceed thousands of likes within hours, but it’s not just the stars getting in on the selfie snapshots. Many of their sweet and shaggy fur friends garner enough likes and comments to rival their well-known owners with their own version of the selfie, fittingly dubbed a “pelfie.”
Since 2013, the pelfie, a portmanteau of pet and selfie, has quickly worked its way into social media lexicon with millions of users sharing hilarious, sweet, and cute shots of their four-legged friends on their Twitter and Instagram accounts. Much like their owners, many of these pets seem to know how to work the camera. Whether documenting the mundane moments of their day, kicking up their paws in a lap of luxury, or modeling the latest pet fashions, these six celebrity pets have garnered a following all their own, their innate ability to create the paw-fect pelfie.

1 Amanda Seyfried and her Australian Shepherd Finn
When Amanda Seyfried adopted her four-year-old Australian shepherd, Finn while filming HBO television drama Big Love, even she couldn't have predicted the remarkable following that Finn would soon amass. This selfie-loving pooch boasts a Twitter account of more than 12,300 followers to whom he frequently tweets doggie insights and his opinions on current events, but it’s his near-daily appearances on Seyfried’s Instagram with its nearly 513,000 followers that have made Finn a true canine celeb. His four-legged fame even extends as far as Korea, where Seyfried reported fans holding up photos of Finn upon her arrival. And they certainly have plenty of shots of this clear trailblazer of canine selfies to choose from. Since Seyfried first joined Instagram in October 2011, Finn has appeared in more than 90 of her 210 posts, almost half of which are Finn selfies. From sporting sunglasses and rocking wild wigs to showing off his unique ability to balance everything from baby ducks to a hamburger on his head, it’s no surprise how quickly Finn became an overnight selfie sensation.
