Cute Corgi Goes Crazy at UCSD [Photos]

This 1.5-year-old pup's good looks and adventurous spirit are gaining him quite the following online.

Ventus the Pembroke Welsh Corgi probably has more followers than you do! Pet owners, UC San Diego students Kirsten Koa and Pauline Vu, manage the one and a half year old's multiple social media accounts... and Ventus is very, very busy being cute.

They've posted more than 750 pics and videos to Instagram since last summer and have more than 2,850 followers. They also run his Tumblr page. Ventus even has his own meme—the "Skeptical Corgi" (capturing more than 400,000 notes on the original post, which asks "So you're telling me... you're taking off my balls instead of going walkies?") 

"We made the Tumblr for Ventus in hopes of keeping an online scrapbook of his pictures and to document his growth," Vu told UC San Diego's newspaper, The Guardian. "We did not expect at first for him to go viral, but when he did, we were just really happy."

Koa and Vu, both seniors at UCSD, adopted Ventus last year as roommates.

The two are expanding their corgi obsession with a game too. The duo created a memory game called "Corgi Memory." It is available in the Apple App Store. (It's free.)

Corgi's are cute, but I like Pugs. Especially Pugs with their tongues hanging out.

Cute, but Biddy the Hedgehog is much cuter

What a cooperative little doggie, letting them put all those outfits on him! I give him an A for behavior!

That would be a 'B' for behavior Patrick and 'A' for adjusting .
