Be honest — you only have an Instagram account so you can escape from the stresses of the world and look at photos and videos of cute dogs.
Okay, maybe you have an Instagram account for different reasons, but that is certainly one of many ways you can use the photo sharing social app.
And if you’re a big fan of #DogsOfInstagram — a tag that’s been slapped on more than 98 million posts — you’ll want to give a follow to three pups in north Fulton County.
The city of Johns Creek’s police department has launched Instagram pages for three of its K-9 officers. Folks will now be offered inside looks into the lives of Dane, Valor and Kimo, on and off the job.
The accounts were created on April 27 and the dogs have already put their social media skills to use, posting dozens of photos and even a few videos.
Dane seems to be the most popular so far. As of Monday, the 3-year-old Belgian Malinois from the Czech Republic had more than 290 followers. When Dane is off the clock, it seems to enjoy lounging on tile floors and attacking newbies in the bite suit.
Valor, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois from Budapest, has 203 followers and seems to enjoy walks and fetching after his Kong toy.
Kimo is the third K-9 officer on Instagram, but it’s account is private, so you’ll have to follow with your own account to see what the pup is up to. Kimo is a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois with 84 followers.
