Animal influencers have become big business on social media, and these five dogs, (and one cat!) are no exception. Each one has millions of followers across various social media platforms, and their owners often have to quit their day jobs in order to cater to the growing success of their four-legged branding opportunities.

Here are just a few of the best ways these dapper dogs are able to show off what the holiday season [VIDEO]means to them.

Dolly is a London-based, 2-year-old chihuahua who lists her work as an "LGBT activist" as her main priority. But, she is also a model who recently fronted a campaign for U.K.

3. Brus Griffin

A tiny Brussels Griffon, this internet superstar-in-the-making is probably best known for donning an ill-fitting brown suit as part of a car salesman character, created by her owner Stephanie.

Here, Brus shows fans a new and inventive way to decorate the Christmas tree, and considers upgrading the Elf on a Shelf:

2. Ella Bean

Rescued from the horrendous conditions of a puppy mill, Ella is now a 4-pound pampered pup in the big city! Often photographed with her own "Bean-sized" laptop and glasses, she travels the world as an advocate for animal rescue.
