Remarkable Brands has been named worldwide licensing agent for the four-legged social media superstar Doug the Pug.

“I first became a fan of this adorable, funny, easy-going pug, and then realized that his social media numbers could not be ignored,” said Stacey Reiner, veteran founder of the NYC-based agent. “With more than 1 billion Facebook video views and 8 million followers across his social media networks, Doug is a full-fledged pop culture powerhouse. We are very excited to help capture Doug's entertaining nature across an array of fun and irresistible products for fans everywhere.”

In addition to being a social media darling, the 4-year-old pooch and owner Leslie Mosier is a full-fledged celebrity. Doug’s growing pack of high-profile friends includes: Justin Bieber, Joe Jonas, John Legend, Dolly Parton, Chrissy Teigen, and Steven Tyler.

He’s been mentioned on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and appeared on top TV shows such as Good Morning America and Today as well as The View, which featured a montage of his videos. Doug’s star power was further unleashed with coverage by leading national print and online media – from People, Time and Cosmopolitan to Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, USA Today, and many more. And to “crown” it off, Doug is also the star of New York Times bestseller, “Doug the Pug – King of Pop Culture” (St. Martin’s Griffin).

Doug the Pug’s rise to worldwide stardom began in 2012 after Mosier adopted him from an Ohio-based breeder. She began dressing Doug in a wide range of hilarious wigs and costumes to bring out his laid-back personality and then posting them to social media. With the online world’s obsession with adorable animals, Doug’s profile quickly grew and his celebrity status along with it.
