Knox and Sadie, a Dachshund and 3-legged Chihuahua, are internet sensations with nearly 250,000 followers.

You may have seen Knox the Dox's picture in a doggie duck outfit.

It's been shared millions of times around the world and Snoop Dogg even used it as his profile picture for a while.

Their mom, Liz Reim, is about to graduate law school in Durham. When she's not in class, she's updating their Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter, and Facebook pages. And their posts aren't just getting Snoop Dogg's attention. Pharmaceutical companies, dog food and clothing brands, even Disney has contacted Reim to use Knox and Sadie in their ads.

It all started with a Vine video Liz posted on Sadie's page one night. When she went to bed, Sadie had six followers. When she woke up, she had 30,000. Sadie, had gone viral. Knox joined the family later, and now the pair play it up. Their message is simple, it has to be in a 6-second Vine video. Liz thinks people are inspired when they see Sadie living and loving life on three legs. Knox's playful personality is just plain fun to watch.

The dogs have already been invited to join the Screen Actors Guild and they have some big contracts that help mom get through law school. Last year, they were invited to the World Dog Awards in LA. Maybe this year, they'll win an award there.
