Doug the Pug, one of Instagram’s most popular pugs, has delivered on his New Year’s Resolution.
In the adorable Nashville native’s latest video, he visits a local homeless shelter, the fire department and local businesses to deliver messages of kindness and encouragement.
In the video, Doug delivers inspirational messages like ‘You are Loved’, ‘You are enough’ and ‘Things are never as bad as they seem’ to strangers — and usually gets rewarded for his efforts with a big hug.
“Doug makes a lot of people happy on the internet,” his human friend Leslie Mosier told Mashable. “So I wanted to find a way to brighten the days of strangers here in Nashville.
“It’s true that a dog can turn around even the worst of days, and I’d love to find ways to continue making people smile through Doug in the future.”
