This Doggy Loves To Give Hugs To People Who Need It

If you need a hug, better go to Chelsea in New York City …

Where you can meet Louboutina, the famous “hugging” dog from New York with 193k followers on Instagram.

It all started around Valentine’s Day in 2014, when Loubie started holding hands with her owner.

“She started to sit up and grab my hands with her two legs.”

“I remember joking with my friends, ‘At least I have someone to hold hands with on Valentine’s Day,” said its owner Fernández-Chávez.

Today, the Golden Retriever spends around 2 hours a day hugging the people she meets on her walk.

“It’s not a normal walk … it’s a hug walk.”
“People say they’re glad … if they had a bad day at work, maybe that’s just what they needed.”

Fernández-Chávez understands that everyone needs the affection that their dog has to offer.

So you can email her and give Louboutina a hug if you’re in New York.
