LA is the home of famous actors, actresses – and dogs.

There is a hotbed of famous Instagram dogs living in Los Angeles, like the other major cities in the USA.

These LA-based pooches get to enjoy the beautiful beaches and sunny weather of California.

You’ll even find some canines who like to do a bit of acting in their spare time.
