They had a rough start to life, but now they’re famous. So, here are some rescue dog Instagram stars that you should be following!
Marnie the Dog

She was adopted at age 11, and she ended up living all they way until 18! She looks a bit silly with her head tilt and long tongue, but it’s all a part of her personality. She got to go on so many adventures and meet many celebrities throughout the years. She also encouraged so many people to adopt senior dogs, and she will always inspire others.

Wally’s Rescued Life
Wally is an adorable little senior dog that the internet has fallen in love with. He was very skinny with matted hair and decaying teeth when the shelter took him in.

He currently has over 34,000 followers!
