Today we got the honor of interviewing Anais (GiGi's Human). You can find a direct link to their Instagram here.

Here is their story:

Can you tell us about your journey to becoming a dog influencer? What inspired you to start sharing your dog's adventures on social media?

Broer: Adopting my soul dog really changed my life for the better and I wanted to share that joy with others. However, I soon found an amazing community of people who are navigating having a dog, sharing tips and spreading love. Lastly, adopting my dog from a high kill shelter really exposed me to the current climate of shelters and the need to advocate for bully breed dogs who are often killed at the highest rates. I have been able to use our Instagram page to share dogs that need homes, fundraise, and even save a few dogs' lives! My goal of having GiGi be an influencer is to help save as many lives as we can and change the narrative about bully breeds.

What do you think sets your dog apart from other dogs on social media? What makes them unique or particularly interesting to your followers?

Broer: GiGi is a very beautiful dog who also happens to be the happiest and sweetest. She is able to share joy with hundreds and even thousands just by her smile! She is also silly and has a lot of personality which allows our followers to connect with her.

How do you come up with ideas for your dog's posts and content? Do you have a specific creative process?

Broer: Usually, GiGi inspires the content! However, we do go to events and take GiGi on lots of “field trips” that help with content. We are also active on social media and do try to pay attention to trends to cater our posts towards what is trending.

Have you ever faced any challenges or negativity on social media, and how have you dealt with it?

Broer: Yes, having a dog that is a bully breed (pitbull mix) comes with a lot of negative feelings and the thought that she is dangerous (which is far from the truth). Gigi absolutely loves kids and I’ve been told by people in messages/comments to keep her away from kids!

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own dog influencer account or share their dog on social media?

Broer: To really be active in the dog influencing community - make friends, learn from each other but also share what makes YOUR dog so special.

How has your dog influenced your life outside of social media?

Broer: She has truly changed my life! She has helped me to help save other dogs and spread awareness about bully breeds. She has made my life so much better! I have a chronic illness and was worried about getting a dog because sometimes I’m unable to get out of bed but my dog seems to sense how I’m feeling and knows when to curl up next to me and take it easy. She has also allowed me to make many new friends on Instagram through the dog community but also meeting folks at dog-related events.

Can you tell us about a particularly memorable or funny moment you've had with your dog during one of your photo shoots or adventures?

Broer: GiGi can really use her voice if she really wants something! So on more than one occasion, if I’m taking too long to give her a treat for sitting or “down” she will tell me (she sounds like Chewbacca). It never fails to crack me up and then I obviously give in.

What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?

Broer: Making new friends and using the platform to help save other dogs!

Lastly, what's next for you and your dog on social media? Any exciting plans or projects in the works?

Broer: I am really hoping to grow her social media presence through partnerships like this! I am confident GiGi has a lot of joy to share with others and can help save the lives of many dogs.
