Chihuahua Jonathan Warren has an Instagram profile worthy of any travel blogger.

Adorable dog ‘Jonathan Warren’ is without a doubt living his very best life. His holiday snaps from around the world have earned him an army of fans. But things could have been very different for the six-year-old Chihuahua. He was on doggy death row in an animal shelter in Georgia, America, when he was adopted by his smitten owners, Amanda Klecker, 31, and husband Jeremy Simon, 37. Jonathan has now visited France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Canada, Belgium, Holland, and Luxembourg - posing for a series of Instagram-worthy snaps along the way. Marketing director Amanda, from New York, US, said: "I travel a lot with work and now only fly with airlines that allow dogs in cabin as Jonathan loves the window seat. He loves being on planes, trains, and in cars. He likes to cuddle up in his bag or on our laps, and just hang out with us." “He has never had an accident or shown the need to go to the bathroom while he’s on the flight, I think he just knows the drill and likes to kick back and relax while we’re in the air. We love bringing him to Europe because everywhere is so dog-friendly, he gets to experience everything with us from dining out or sunbathing on a rooftop pool." “We want to show him the world, not just because he was once destined to only see the inside of a cage, but because we know sharing his adventures can help eliminate the negative stigma surrounding shelter animals and help shed a positive light on adoptable pets." The couple now won't go on holiday unless Jonathan can come with them. Amanda said: “We both love taking Jonathan on holiday with us and he loves it too, when he sees our suitcases, he sulks until he sees his and then he gets excited." “He prances around, and this makes us more excited for the trip. We could never leave him behind knowing how much he enjoys his holidays, it’s so important to us to take him with us.” Boasting an impressive 16k followers his Instagram page @jonathanwarrenofficial - the tiny dog was adopted when he was 12 months old. Amanda said: “I first saw him at a dog shelter in Connecticut and I instantly fell in love. I could see all his ribs and the bones in his spine, and his long thin legs looked even longer by comparison of his tiny body. But I still thought he was the most handsome little man and fell in love immediately." "His name in the shelter was Johnny but I could tell right away that he was more of a Jonathan as he is very prim and proper. He crosses his legs and gives you the look with his eyes and you know he is judging you." “At one point, he was going to be a dog who has only ever seen a cage and then die but now he is living the dream. He instantly adapted to the high life on the Upper East Side in Manhattan - he was meant to be here.”

And could this pooch be the world's most travelled dog?

Miami the Chihuahua lives the high life as he documents his globetrotting adventures with Roman centurions and swimsuit-clad girls on Instagram. Taking the world by storm is Miami the adorable chihuahua, who documents his globetrotting adventures for his fans on Instagram. From having breakfast in Times Square to being adored by swimming-suit clad girls on the beach in Italy, the posing pooch loves nothing more than to explore new places with his owners. Being only a small canine, many of the attractions tower over his pint-sized frame, but that hasn't put off Miami from posing next to famous sights such as the Grand Canyon and the Golden Gate Bridge for his Instagram page. Donning accessories in his trademark colour red, three-year-old Miami is always dressed for the occasion, whether that involves a snug coat for the airport or a studded collar for a yacht. Miami is a very unusual chihuahua cause he's so sweet and friendly with everyone,' his owner Marianna Chiaraluce said. "He loves Kimpton Hotels as they offer the best pets treatment ever." The lucky pooch is often treated to luxury venues as his owners work in the hospitality business. One of his latest holidays was to white-washed Santorini, where he enjoyed breakfasts overlooking the sea and watching the sun set with his family by a pool. When he is not living a privileged hotel life, Miami enjoys simple pleasures in his hometown of Cattolica, near Rimini on the Italian Adriatic Riviera. Since his Instagram page was launched, he has visited 15 U.S. states and numerous countries in Europe and always accompanies Marianna on all her travels. "Unfortunately the only adventure that he missed was the UK," she said. "I took some postcards of little Miami with me to take pictures in London." "Miami was so unhappy." Marianna adopted Miami from a small dog-breeding kennel in Rome. "The pup was already seven months old and unsuitable for canine competitions for a minor health issue," she said. "This made me love him even more: his name was perfect, and in his world of pure bred chihuahuas he was the unlucky one, so we adopted him." Thankfully his health has not stopped him from seeing the world and the next country to be ticked off Miami's bucket list is Istanbul, although Marianna hopes that he will one day visit London.
