About Rafael Mantesso

Rafael Mantesso is obsessed with his bull terrier Jimmy, and has subsequently made him one of the more famous #dogsofinstagram. With a white background, a black marker, and a camera, Rafael can make Jimmy look like he’s on any kind of adventure, all inside their apartment in Brazil. With some good training and proper rewards, Rafael captures Jimmy in the most adorable positions, cute enough for a 2017 wall calendar for his avid fans. Jimmy sweetly plays along while Rafael creatively manipulates the world around him. With over 600K Instagram followers, this dog is going places, without ever leaving his living room.
