An online pet gift company is looking for a spokesdog and the role comes with a 10-month contract that pays up to $1,000 per month.

Yappy.com, a personalized gift and card website for "dog and cat lovers," is hiring a "chief fluff officer" who will serve as a canine influencer, according to the company’s open job application.

The company is headquartered in Manchester, England, but the role is remote and can mostly be done at home, so long as the hired pet and pet owner have the ability to film content for social media.
