Whether you’re a big Hollywood star or not in the spotlight, they all have one thing in common. It looks like everyone loves their dogs equally. As you learn more about the dog breeds that celebrities have had, you will see these stars in a whole new light. Be prepared for a severe case of puppy fever, however, as these pampered pets are just adorable.
Both toy and terrier breeds appear to be popular with both celebrities and some members of the sports group. Although the days of tiny dogs being herded into handbags may be over, the smaller breeds definitely seem to be still in vogue. But as anyone who has lived with a smaller dog knows, even the smallest canines still have a lot of personality (and sometimes demeanor).
There is something cute about the way celebs treat their dogs too. Even people who have tremendous fame and success still post silly pictures with their dogs on social media, which is perhaps the most humanizing thing anyone can do. After all, dogs don’t care how much you love getting on Insta or how much money your latest movie made. They just love you, and that unconditional love is something almost all people can appreciate.
