Celebrity pets have already found fame through Facebook and Instagram, and now Katy Perry's pampered pooch is taking over TV.

The teacup poodle named Nugget starred in a commercial for Citi's Double Cash card alongside her famous mama. The occasion marks Nugget's debut into the world of acting, and the national ad campaign is garnering all the right kinds of attention.

The short commercial shows Nugget lounging in a personalized director's chair and stealing all of Perry's attention. The ad's "straightforward offering" campaign is strengthened by Perry's brutal honesty and Nugget's undeniably adorable acting.

While the official commercial won't debut until May 22, it's already a big success.

It's obvious that Nugget inherited Perry's natural talent for being in front of the camera. It won't be long until she has a fan club of her own. She's already had time in the spotlight getting close to Perry's ex, Orlando Bloom, and she's frequently featured on Perry's social media pages. The dog's managing team released a statement to People for the budding actress. She said,

"I've traveled from stage to stage with Katy but it's time to take my solo career to the next level and ride my own wagging tail. I'm as happy as a hound dog chasing a gut truck to be launching this new campaign with Citi. It finally puts me on the pedestal on which I belong."

Nugget's big confidence comes in a tiny body, and the odds are good that the world will see more of this canine celebrity in the future. Nugget lives with Perry alongside another dog named Butters and two cats. We can only hope the rising star remembers to thank them in her Oscar acceptance speech.
