Riley is a Boston Terrier who's quickly becoming known as "The Carpet Shark."

July 31, 2017

And she's got more followers on Instagram than you. Not without good reason, mind you. And not just because she's adorable -- plenty of pets are adorable -- Riley has that certain 'je ne sais quoi.' For instance, could you ever get your pooch to do this?

I didn't think so. Carpet Sharks are extremely rare. In addition to helping her owner keep the carpet ship shape, she's working on earning her keep by getting an endorsement deal or two.

I'm ready for my debut. Who's hiring? @purina #jk haha ----What dog food do you all use? Any recommendations?

But Riley also knows how to keep it real. Just like you and me, Riley doesn't always feel her most confident and she's not afraid to show it.

The whole leg thing was always a bit of a challenge from an early age...------------ #conqueringfears #fearsofstairs
