50 Adorable Pets And The Celebrities They Belong To
Animals are one of the world's most beautiful creations. Across the world, many of them have been revered as sacred because of their strength and majesty, while others are seen as no more than something to roast with sauce. The balance lies in having them as pets, and celebrities are obsessed with theirs. Which celebrity do you think has the coolest pet? Take a look through this gallery and see if your favorite pet made our list!
Bubbles - Michael Jackson
Bubbles the chimpanzee belonged to the greatest musical talent the world has ever witnessed, Michael Jackson. Born in 1983, the American singer brought Bubbles along on his travels, had pictures drawn of him, and even drank tea with Michael and the Mayor of Osaka, Japan!
Bubbles lived on Michael's Neverland Ranch where he had his own room and candy station. By 2003, he was too big and aggressive to keep in the home, so the chimp was sent to a sanctuary in Wauchula, Florida where he still resides today.
Woody - Jeff Goldblum
Jeff Goldblum's poodle, Woody, is just as quirky and curious as his owner. The poodle that has the attention of Mr. Goldblum when he's not shooting Apartment.com commercials was a rescue and Jeff simply couldn't resist the stout, size, and fluffy coat of this simple and docile animal.
Here he is with Jeff being trained by Goldblum for a special little treat. Woody's favorite thing to do is roam free around the estate. It looks like Woody is a bit tired and thirsty after roaming around the compound, considering how large it is.
Sake and Soba - Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian is known for her love of anything lavish and "so cute," including the newest editions of her reality pet collection, two Pomeranian dogs, one black and one white. The precious animals were just pups when they were brought home and Kim allowed her daughter, North, to choose the names.
The white pooch is named Sake and the black Pomeranian is named Soba. We can clearly see that North has a delight for Asian culture, or was simply hungry while naming these precious pups.
Babou - Salvador Dali
One of the coolest attributes of artist Salvador Dali was his ability to create surrealism within any situation. His eccentric artwork was complimented by his surreal taste in creatures, which is why he probably chose an ocelot as his pet. The ocelot's name was Babou and Salvador claimed that the big cat was given to him as a gift from the head of the state of Colombia.
Dali was accepting of it because of his exotic taste in animals. The blotted spots and textured patterns are what made Salvador Dali even more obsessed with this beautiful animal.
Foe Thee Frenchie - Megan Thee Stallion
Megan Thee Stallion introduces Foe Thee Frenchie, a French bulldog that the "savage" rapper considers her one and only "son." Megan obtained Foe in August of 2019 and has been locked in with him since then. Here, you can see Foe and Megan having a photo shoot, where Frenchie may not be as happy as she is.
Nonetheless, Megan has loved Foe for three years now, and I'm sure there will be many more years - and photo shoots - to come, expressing the love that is shared between the two of them.
Lilo - Simone Biles
If you've heard of the youthful Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, then you must know, and possibly be a fan of her French Bulldog named Lilo. Lilo appears in many of Simone's pictures on Instagram, and both of them seem really happy.
Simone and Lilo are typically homebodies when Simone is not stunning the crowd with her finesse and jaw-dropping acrobatics. Simone has other canines at her disposal, but Lilo definitely is the most famous of all of them. Based on this photo, Lilo looks like a face-licker of love!
Maverick - Nina Dobrev
The Canadian actress, Nina Dobrev, is known for the Sci-Fi/fantasy role of Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce on The CW's supernatural drama series, The Vampire Diaries. When she isn't hunting down other supernatural beings, she spends time with her dog, Maverick.

Mrs. Wallis Browning - Ellen DeGeneres
Mrs. Wallis Browning is a creative name for a poodle, owned by none other than the noted talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres. DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi, rescued the pooch in September 2019, and although she did her best to hold it back, Ellen was extremely excited.
She told her audience that the dog was rescued from a location called Wagmor, and she was "so tiny" when they brought her home. Ellen used the words "pretty and precious" to describe her ultimate feelings for Mrs. Browning.
Lump - Pablo Picasso
The name Picasso rings the ears of many artists and lovers of art from around the world. The renowned artist loved more than just creating fine pieces of his soul, he was also a dog lover. Pablo Picasso proved this every day by spending time with his wiener dog, Lump.
Lump was born in 1956 and died in 1973. Picasso only spent six years with his beloved, but that was all it took for him to fall in love. Pablo even created a sketch of this animal which many people use as a tattoo to express the love they have for Dachshund dogs.
Trappy - 2 Chainz
Trappy is one of the more notable famous animals on our list of celebrity pets. As you can see, he's always with his player-partner, 2 Chainz, rapper extraordinaire.

Kuma - Justin Theroux
Most people are fans of pitbulls although their reputation has been distorted by what humans make them do. However, Kuma doesn't have this issue because of her owner, actor Justin Theroux. He adopted her during the aftermath of a hurricane. Fun fact: Kuma helped save some dogs after the hurricane!
Theroux was proud enough to create an Instagram for her, @KumaTheroux, in 2021. The two of them love to spend time together, especially eating, where Kuma is allowed to sit at the table to enjoy some gourmet human food.
Sunny & Bo - The Obama Family
The Portuguese water dog became extremely popular when the 44th president of the United States of America, Barak Obama, introduced two of them as their family pets, Sunny and Bo. Bo is a male while sunny is a female. The dogs can be seen being full of energy and affectionate to the former First Family in many political pictures.
Sunny is still alive and kicking as the Obama family has transitioned out of the White House. However, it was confirmed that Bo died of cancer on May 8, 2021. May he rest in peace.
Sunny, Lauren, Luke, Layla, and Sadie - Oprah Winfrey
The first African-American woman to own her own syndicated talk show was Oprah Winfrey, and the fruits of her magnificent and inspiring legend includes five dogs! Oprah owns two golden retrievers named Luke and Layla, a cocker spaniel named Sadie, and two springer spaniels named Sunny and Lauren.
As you can imagine, these dogs live a comfy and lavish life with the best foods and much love from Winfrey herself. If anything were to happen to the living legend, these canines have a $30 million insurance policy to keep up their lifestyle!
Rin Tin Tin - Lee Duncan
If you know about the history of Warner Brothers, then you know about Rin Tin Tin, the studios most beloved star pet. Originally, the famous German Shepard was rescued during a ravaged area in France during World War II.
An American soldier named Lee Duncan (featured) found Rin and took him home with him to Los Angeles where he became a star after being recorded jumping 12 feet in the air! After 30 films, Rin Tin Tin became Hollywood's most adored animal and holds a spot in their Hall of Fame.
Martha - Paul McCartney
Martha was born in 1966 and belonged to musical sensation, Paul McCartney. The Old English Sheepdog was a beloved companion of the singer as she would join him on the road traveling the many countries with her owner. Fun fact: this sheepdog was Paul's first significant pet!
Martha has appeared in many photo shoots with Paul which he said she enjoyed. Martha is also the inspiration behind the piano-led song titled "Martha My Dear" which appeared on The Beatles White album. It's said that the entire band had their own after the lovely pooch gave birth to seven more!
Gary - Carrie Fisher
You may know her best from her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars film series, but in reality, she was simply Carrie Fisher, and when she passed away, she was survived by her friendly French Bulldog named Gary. The black-coated dog has its own Twitter and Instagram account connected to Carrie's.
On the platforms, you can see many photos, with many of them being the last pictures taken with Ms. Carrie before leaving this Earth. More pictures of his "farewell photos" to his ultimate caretaker and human companion are said to be found on social media.
Mister - Billie Holiday
Billie Holiday was a strong and sensational singer of the early 1940s and '50s. She would travel all over the world singing her blues, but behind the scenes, those blues would fade away because of her many dogs! Billie's arsenal of canines included a tiny poodle she carried in her pocket and even a Great Dane.
Her most beloved canine was her dog, Mister. Mister was a boxer that had the heart of the soul singer for many years. There was even a book written about their shared admiration called Mister and Lady Day: Billie Holiday and the Dog Who Loved Her.
Kenya - Mike Tyson
Mike Tyson, better known as "Iron Mike," has made some ferocious knockouts and comments over his years as a professional and world-renowned famous boxer. It's no surprise that the beast of a boxer would represent his strength with the strongest big cat, a tiger. Mike had three tigers in total, but his original was a white tiger named Kenya.
The champion can recount when the tiger "ripped off someone's arm" and he had to pay $250,000 in compensation. Now, Mike no longer has his famous tiger, he has a poodle. However, no poodle can replace the magnificence of Kenya, the white tiger.
Scarlett - Usher
So, it's only been a few years, but since 2018, fans and the media of American singer, Usher, have raved over the love that he has for his female Goldendoodle, Scarlett. The golden nugget is a mix between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle, and as you can see, Usher can't get enough.
Usher told People Magazine, "She's my road dog, man." Usher sees this animal as his loyal companion and is clearly obsessed with one of the most adorable and famous celebrity pets yet. Oh, and let's also add that this pup cost Usher an easy $12,000.
Maf - Marilyn Monroe
What can we say about the stunning woman that was Marilyn Monroe outside of "wow!" The popular beauty of Marilyn was one to be reckoned with, especially when she had the cutest little Maltese terrier with her named Maf. Part of why she decided to keep the gift of a pet was because it was described to her as a poodle.
The terrier was said to have been given to her by her dear old friend, Frank Sinatra, who was also a huge fan of the four-legged creatures. As you can see, Marilyn was attached to her little white snowball and loved every moment of it.
Champeranian - Mark Wahlberg
Actor extraordinaire, Mark Wahlberg, has starred in many top-grossing movies, but we never see him with any animals in his movies, outside of the stuffed Teddy Bear from Ted. But if you are ever lucky enough to go to his home, you'll see his Pomeranian, Champeranian, running around the house.
Mark's dog's name is the mix of the words "Champion" and "Pomeranian" to showcase the strength he believes his dog holds based on his own awesomeness. Currently, Mark's goal is to get @Champeranian Instagram verified. It's been three years already so help him out and follow now!
Tortoise - Leonardo DiCaprio
We may not know the name of one of nature's biggest - and slowest - animals, but Leonardo DiCaprio didn't care as much because his love for it outweighed a few letters. During a movie premiere, Leonardo bought an African spurred tortoise for a whopping $400 at the North American Reptile Breeders Conference and Trade Show in 2010.
These tortoises are known for living 80-100 years and Leo adopted the tortoise when it was only 10 years old. Conservationists have had their comments about keeping the turtle, but the actor does a great job at keeping the peace for the animal.
Isaboo - Rachel Ray
You may have seen star chef, Rachel Ray, sprinkle some EVOO on her latest salad or cuisine creation. But, what you may not know is that sometimes the producers will give the leftovers to her dog, Isaboo, who sometimes is on set with her - though not a lot because of the food.
Her red-nose pitbull has been a part of her family for 13 years, and many of her fans can determine that she was truly a dog mom to this muscular canine. It must be nice to have a dog mom that's a chef too!
Alice - John Lennon
Phenomenal singer, John Lennon, alongside his partner and companion, Yoko Ono, were said to be peaceful people, requiring peaceful animals, which is where cats came into play for them. With Yoko, John had two cats named Salt and Pepper. Later, John got another cat, a Russian blue cat he named Alice, which became his favorite.
However, Alice didn't have the best ending. Her cat instincts kicked in one day, and while at the home of the musical star, Alice jumped out of the open window of Lennon's high-rise apartment and plunged to her death. RIP Alice.
Meatball - Adam Sandler
You can already imagine actor Adam Sandler screaming from across his courtyard, "Hey meatball! Get over here!" The comedic actor has made many films with the same steady crew and has become famous for it, and so has his lovable, chunky English bulldog, Meatball!
Back in 2003, Adam even chose Meatball to be his best man at his wedding! How cool is that? Only Adam Sandler would do something so cooky to express the amount of love and trust he has for his best man and, possibly, best friend.
Alfred Doodle Perry - Matthew Perry
Matthew Perry, the well-known actor from the hit '90s TV show, Friends, has a question for you: "Who's cuter?" Most of us know the answer to this question, and it's the dog, Matthew! His poodle actually has a full name: Alfred Doodle Perry! The copper-colored puppy was obtained only three years ago and has stolen the spotlight from Perry himself.
Mr. Doodle is so cute that Matthew's Instagram photos with him in it receive more likes than Matthew alone. Alfred has become so popular, that this canine actually has its own Instagram account, @Alfreddoodleperry.
Molly - Stephen King
Molly the Corgi belongs to horror writer Stephen King, who loves his small-time companion, but he knew that she was just like some of the characters that he had written about in his sinister stories. This is why the author gave molly the nickname, "The thing of Evil." Such a name came about because Molly is known to have a bad attitude and is moderately destructive.
Stephen King even made a tweet back in 2018 stating, "No grooming today for the Thing of Evil. She has been banned from her second Petco." Molly is definitely one of the more interesting famous celebrity pets.
Rufus - Winston Churchill
Meet Rufus, the most trusted companion and confidant of former Prime Minister of the UK, Sir Winston Churchill. Sir Churchill was known for his no-nonsense approach to life and was known as the "British bulldog." Yet, all that fell to the wayside and his face lit up when he saw his poodle following him around.
Rufus especially came in handy as the former Prime Minister successfully led Britain through World War II. The dog joined him at luncheons, special meetings, and in his heart, where Winston kept him until his passing.
Chip - Serena Williams
Tennis superstar Serena Williams is known for having a strong and tone physique, and she is compared to a giant whenever her small and lovable Yorkshire Terrier, Chip, approaches her. Serena is a dog lover and actually has two, but Chip is her ultimate friend.
He's small enough to fit in bags and purses and has even accompanied the athlete to many of her national title tournaments and championships. Based on that size and face, it's easy to see why Serena loves this dog.
Norman and Bambi - Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner is a Gen Z celebrity that has reached the ranks of her older sisters, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney. Like them, she too has pets that touch her soul too. Kylie is the proud owner of two Italian Greyhounds named Norman and Bambi. The pair were purchased and shown off by Kylie to the point of them needing their own social media account: @NormiAndBambiJenner.
Kylie loves her greyhounds so much that she even skipped the 2016 American Music Awards because they had puppies! This type of dedication proves why Jenner deserves her cute canines.
Baxter - Ryan Reynolds
Mr. Deadpool himself, actor Ryan Reynolds, always has a comedic, snarky comment to make, which is part of his charm that was exposed while describing how he met his pal, Baxter. As he told Us Weekly, "I saw this big, dumb-looking [golden] retriever staring up at me. I whispered, 'Hey, let's get the hell out of here...' we've been best buddies ever since."
The bond that these two share has been seen in magazines and social media publications. Baxter's rise to fame is thanks to his cuteness, loyalty, and Ryan's sarcasm that showcases the true love he has for his retriever.
Kane - Trey Songz
Millennial artist Trey Songz is known for making the ladies smile with his R&B voice and charming smile, but it's his dog, Kane Songz, that puts a smile on his. Kane, the black and white Frenchie, became popular a few years back, and it was easy to see the companionship between the artist and the canine.
Kane has a super fan thanks to his human dad. You can see more of their happy moments on Instagram @KaneSongz. It would be a real challenge not to leave a comment as Kane is so adorable!
Diana - Priyanka Chopra
Actress, supermodel, mother, and wife, Priyanka Chopra is the Indian star that has more on her plate than just a family, TV series, and runways. Priyanka is also the proud owner of her dog, Diana, the chihuahua-terrier mix. As the story goes, the actress received this dog before becoming the wife of American music artist, Nick Jonas.
Diana came in handy while Priyanka was in New York City alone for work. Now, she, Diana, and the rest of the family enjoy their country living where all of their pets have plenty of room to roam free.
Pinto & Tinker - Lucille Ball
I Love Lucy was one of the greatest black-and-white series of all time, and Lucille Ball had a lot to do with its success. Even when there were animals involved, Lucille - aka "Lucy" - couldn't be upstaged by them because they only made her smile more! Later in life, she decided to make it permanent by getting herself two Cocker Spaniels, with one of them being named Pinto.
To keep it simple, if the dog were to die, she would get another dog and give it the name of the dog that died. The dog may go, but the love for them remains the same.
Cappy - Humphrey Bogart
In 1941, Humphrey Bogart, a famous American film and stage actor in Hollywood cinema films, had one of the coolest photoshoots with his Newfoundland dog, Cappy. Although the thespian owned many animals throughout his life, Cappy topped the list because of his size, cooperation, and strength.
There were many pictures taken with Cappy, Humphrey and his wife. One of the more recognizable images being the Bogarts taking a nap and using Cappy as a pillow, as featured in this peaceful image. We can see that Cappy was definitely a member of the Bogart family.
Ringo - Frank Sinatra
From trouble to the stage, American singer and actor, Frank Sinatra, was nicknamed "Chairman of the Board" in connection to his infamous singing group, The Rat Pack. Sinatra was an expressive man through his music and loved to show that same expression to his dog, Ringo.
This image is from a picture taken from a photo shoot that Frank did with LIFE. They were called "best friends" because of their wholesome interactions and protection for each other. LIFE stated that Sinatra told them that his Palm Springs home was very well-protected thanks to his K9 companion.
Quisp - Kurt Cobain
If you know anything about the late rocker, Kurt Cobain, then you know he didn't have the easiest upbringing, and it caused him many mental and emotional issues that brought about his additions, and his eventual death. To help with much of that, Quisp, Kurt's kitten, was around a lot when he got her.
Kurt was known to play with the kitten while relaxing at home. He even went to show his daughter the kitten, featured here, who kept it after his passing in 1994. His daughter was very proud of the cat that brought her father joy.
Sarah - Alfred Hitchcock
Influential filmmaker and magazine publisher, Alfred Hitchcock, was a huge visionary for the unseen. His significance is the reason why TV became so popular, versus just films. In his spare time from motivating progress, Alfred would spend peaceful moments at home with his Sealyham Terrier, Sarah.
Sarah was said to be a curious animal, and typically was only a disturbance when another animal was around, which is normal. As reported, Alfred would speak to her as if she was human, and was on set with him during special events or for companionship.
Scatter - Elvis Presley
With a name like Scatter, you can imagine what types of behavior Elvis' pet chimpanzee would have had. The 40-pound prime ape was said to be more problematic than Elvis and his drug use. However, there was a reason why Elvis wanted this chimp, and it was because of his stardom.
Before getting with Presley, Scatter had his own appearances on a local Memphis TV channel. Elvis saw him and fell in love. Here they are reading together! It's intriguing to imagine how Elvis must've felt towards his end with a small ape scattering all over the place.
Fala - Franklin D. Roosevelt
The presidents of the United States of America typically have a pet or two to keep them occupied and make such a political environment a bit homier. Franklin D. Roosevelt was a major fan of this as he would try to spend as much time as he could with his Black Terrier, Fala.
His pet's full name was "Murray the Outlaw of Falahill," and "Fala" seemed much more friendly. The dog was 11 years old when he died and President Roosevelt was very choked up about it. He rested his four-legged friend in Springwood and has joined him since then.
Mr. Famous - Audrey Hepburn
Mr. Famous was a Yorkshire Terrier owned by the stunning actress, Audrey Hepburn. What makes Mr. Famous so inspiring was the fact that he was the dog to start a Yorkshire Terrier craze in Hollywood. Audrey would hold him during shoots and the camera would catch his lovable and curious facial antics that the audience couldn't get enough of.
Hepburn had many canines, but Mr. Famous was definitely her favorite due to his size, stardom power, and niceness. And let's not forget how freaking adorable this Yorkie is!
Nugget - Katy Perry
The once noted and popular singer, Katy Perry, has added judging to her repertoire on the hit singer-searching series, American Idol, and at times, there may have been a few cameos from her favorite pet, Nugget. Nugget's brown and fluffy fur compliments her micro teacup Poodle essence. How cute is this dog?!
Nugget has made many appearances with Katy at many high-profile events including galas and award shows. Now, the teacup Poodle has her own Instagram profile! Connect with the adorable pup at @MissNuggetPerry.
Bobby - Nawab Sir Mahabet Khan Rasul Khan
The Indian royalty were known to pamper their dogs in the early 1900s. When they did, they presented with festivities of all kinds, like washing and cleaning the dogs, playing with them, and providing them with comfort and love. And the word "festivities" is used literally considering that these events would last for days with up to 800 dogs!
The Maharaja of Junagadh, Nawab, had two dogs that kept his attention the most, with one of them being the royal Golden Retriever that you see sitting at his feet. These dogs were also gifted with jewels and a feast in their honor.
Toto - Dorothy Gale
Dorothy Gale is the fictional character from the movie we all know and love, The Wizard of Oz. Pictured below is Dorothy with one of the more precious and famous animals on the list, Toto, the Cairn Terrier. She was born in November 1933 and spent most of her time in film production playing stage animals in movies.
Real name, Terry, "Toto" makes the list because she was the original dog throughout the movie. She and actress, Judy Garland, formed a bond that made her a worthy selection for the list of famous celebrity pets.
Lassie - Rudd Weatherwax
Remember the movie, Lassie? The show with one of the most famous dogs in America in it? She was a star in her own right and has even won many awards for her canine performances in several movies, but none like the American film classic based on her life as a companion, Lassie.
The Rough Collie dog was used in stories created by filmmakers and authors. Her true owner was a dog trainer named Rudd Weatherwax (featured), and he provided his services as well to help create a show that has yet to be forgotten.
Druzhok - Ivan Pavlov
Ivan Pavlov is well-renowned for his experimentation with dogs to describe and prove the concept of classical conditioning. What you may not know is that Ivan had a favorite subject that he enjoyed working with because of his cooperation, a mix-collie breed that he named "Druzhok".
The meaning of this name is "best friend." In his memoirs, Pavlov seems serious until he begins speaking about Druzhok. He placed emphasis on how he was proud to be the owner of a dog with such might. Pavlov cared for this particular subject very much.
Delilah - Freddie Mercury
"We will, we will, rock you!" Those iconic words were created and shouted by none other than famous rock n roll legend, Freddie Mercury. He was one of those cool souls that you didn't know had a thing for animals, but he did! Freddie was definitely a cat-man with more than ten cats living in his home at a time!
The feline that tickled his soul the most was this one (pictured above), Delilah. Delilah was his kitty of choice, when he went to check out the litter of cats, he immediately gravitated towards her.
Marcus - James Dean
Hollywood hottie Elizabeth Taylor made a great friend in Hollywood heartthrob, James Dean, while shooting the 1955 movie, Giant. As a gift of friendship, Elizabeth gifted James with a Siamese cat that he so simply named, Marcus. Marcus was easy to work with and curious to James, and they became close fast, according to sources.
It's even said that the noted actor would leave during crew breaks and spend time with his cat so he wasn't alone. Now that is a dedicated owner who cares about his cat. James was said to also bring the cat to events and read to it.
Balto - Gunnar Kaasen
Millennials may remember the 1995 animated children's film, Balto. The one where a cool, confident Alaskan Husky takes on the tough challenge of saving an entire village. Yeah, that one. Well, the story is based on true events of a disease spreading through a village 500 miles away from the nearest medicine.
Each musher decided to use their athletic dogs to set up checkpoints to reach the remedies and bring them back. Gunnar (featured) and his loyal pal, Balto, were the last in the chain to bring the medicine back safely to the village. That's why he's so famous!
