A post shared by Todd & Sophie (@toddandsophie_boxers) on

Q: When did you get your pet?

A: We got Todd when he was 11 weeks old in 2010 for a breeder in Chilliwack. Sophie joined our family in 2017 at the age of 6 months after having a rough start to life and being returned to the breeder in Maple Ridge.

Q: Why did you decide to start the Instagram account?

A: We decided to start an Instagram account just for fun, just wanted to share both of their funky personalities & goofy antics with the world. Everyone should smile at least once a day, they can help with this.

Q: What do you think makes the account so popular?

A: I think the fact that boxers are natural goofballs attracts people to our page. They are always doing something silly, acting like complete goofballs & have many different facial expressions that put people in awe of them.

Q: What do you want to achieve with the account?

A: Our overall achievement with this account is just to spread some cheer and make everyone smile.

Q: What is your favourite part of running the account?

A: Our favourite thing about the account would be the dog community on Instagram, it is very strong. It is always amazing meeting all these different accounts who live in your community that you may never have noticed before. Or meeting accounts from all over the world who can relate to us.
