5 Important Facts About JiffPom, Instagram’s Most Famous Dog

You know you’re a big deal when Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg knows your name. It’s an even bigger deal  when you don’t even have opposable thumbs to log into the social media platform he co-founded.

Earlier this week, Zuckerberg invited JiffPom, a ridiculously cute Pomeranian named Jiff, to help him announced Instagram’s new augmented reality filters at the annual F8 conference (where they also revealed a new FB dating platform).

JiffPom, who has nearly 9 million followers on Instagram, was basically just sitting at a laptop on stage, likely trying to figure out WTF he was supposed to be doing. But in classic JiffPom fashion, he just sat there and looked adorable, like a big furry prop.

So, who is this dude and how did he get so famous? Here are 5 facts about the pup that may help answer that question.
