These Very Good Doggos Are Hong Kong’s Newest Ambassadors

Doin' us a fascinate.

A family of pooches been enlisted to showcase the unique artistic, historic and cultural beauty of Hong Kong, China’s, Old Town Central from a four-legged perspective.

But this family of floofs aren’t your regular pack of doggos — the five adorable shiba inus, known collectively as WE5, have an impressive 29,000-strong following across Instagram and Facebook, and have called the Central-Sheung Wan district home for over seven years.

To capture the footage, the pups were kitted out with a few gadgets like mounted cameras to capture their favourite spots and wag-detecting sensors to gauge exactly when they were doin’ a heckin’ excite (and the occasional bamboozle).


Over two days of shooting, the pup-tographers snapped over 400 images of the art, history, culture, and food the area is famed for. You can check a bunch of them out over on their Instagram page.

As part of the campaign, Old Town Central has launched a bunch of themed walking tracks in an effort to promote tourism. Not only do they show off all the beauty the ancient beauty on offer, there’s also a very real chance of running into one of the famed doggos and giving them a little boop.
