About Walter Good Boy

He’s 9, likes raps, collects quarters, and is the inventor of the spramphop. He's also the proud owner of Tails 4U by WGB, a line of luxurious tail extensions for pets. Walter Good Boy took over the gram with a combination of hilarious captions (he writes a mean haiku), heart-melting adorableness and a tiny pink tongue that hangs ever so perfectly from his mouth. Part of a crew of NYC-based French Bulldogs dubbed the "New York Frenchie Crew", Walter and his friends are favorites of the Instagram frenchie world. Walter’s nearly 110K followers know that he hates bath time. If you want to see how much, check out the #bathtimechronicles hashtag for a glimpse at the challenge of keeping this dog so fresh and so clean.
