The pets we love come in all different shapes and sizes. From “long-bois” AKA Greyhounds to “loaves” AKA Corgis, puppers come in whatever size, length, and fluff one could imagine. We love all doggies no matter what they look like, but if you’re looking to appreciate a specific type – fluffy, long, yappy, tiny – you can probably find a social media account for that. If you were specifically looking for round animals, there’s a Twitter for that too!

@Round_Boys is a Twitter account that posts photos of animals dedicated to only one attribute: their roundness. It’s not just dogs that they feature – there are all kinds of animals that are round. You never knew you needed all these “round boys” until now!

Let’s check out some round boys. Prepare your hearts!
