About Topher Brophy

It’s been a big for Topher Brophy. Early in the year, the Instagram sensation who matches stylish outfits with his adopted pup—fellow Instagram star @rosenbergthedog—went viral, with Cosmopolitan and People running features on the duo. Topher and Rosenberg quickly jumped off the phone and onto TV as the stars of a Sprint/Samsung Galaxy ad campaign in the spring and summer. Now with 195K+ followers, Topher uses his platform to champion a wide variety of social causes, raising awareness for issues like the environment, healthy eating, people with disabilities, and many more—often posting links to help followers get involved with each cause. If that wasn’t enough, he and @thedogstyler Chantal Adair also got married, adding a child to their family in November!
