Louboutina – or Loubie for short – is a New York City Golden Retriever whose only job is to hug stressed out city-goers on the street.

This 5-year-old pup has a whole host of skills; she started holding hands at 3 and a half years old and has since moved on to hugs and kisses.

She can also respond to words in English, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, and French, possibly because her owner, Cesar Fernandez-Chavez, manages language interpretation services at Mount Sinai Beth Israel hospital.

Cesar first discovered Loubie’s peculiar talents on Valentine’s Day 2014 when she sat up on two legs and placed her paw in his hand. He joked that at least he would always have a Valentine’s Day date in the years to come.

Sure enough, her friendliness blossomed to include strangers as well. Loubie’s Instagram page, featuring photos of her snuggling at home and hugging people on the street, has over 150,000 followers.

If you would like your own photo with Loubie, she usually hangs out with Cesar on the corner of 5th Avenue аnd 14th Street, ready to embrace any lonesome pedestrian that crosses her path.
