20 Hollywood Stars & Their Canine Companions

Famous or not, pup parents all have one very special thing in common—they love their fur kids!

No matter what celebrity scandal is plastered throughout the tabloids, we hold respect for those who care for their pups. After all, they treat their dogs like royalty!
