About Louboutina (Loubie)

New Yorkers are trained to ignore anything out of the ordinary, but Louboutina, the Golden Retriever who loves to hug, will make anyone stop and drop their guard. Loubie, as her friends and owner Cesar Fernandez-Chavez call her, has become one of NYC’s most famous residents, hugging anyone and everyone passing by in her native Chelsea. Fans head to her @louboutinanyc Instagram page to gaze at the aww-inducing photos of the love the doting doggie doles out. In under a year, Loubie has gone from 18K to 180K+ Instagram followers, leading to appearances on The Rachael Ray Show and Good Morning America. But fame hasn’t gone to her head—she still greets everyone with a paw and a hug.
