John Barrowman, known for traveling among the stars for his role as Captain Jack Harkness in the sci-fi series Torchwood, recently used his star power to shine a light on Dog’s Trust’s “A dog is for life, not just for Christmas” campaign. While promoting the message, the multi-talented entertainer– who is a pet parent to two Cocker Spaniels called Harris and Charlie and a Jack Russell terrier named after his beloved sci-fi character Captain Jack– posed for pix with Vincent, a Jack Russell terrier who is waiting for his forever family at Dog’s Trust Glasgow.
As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait, and although Joe Jonas didn’t get a dog for his 21st birthday as he had hoped, the pop idol seems to have found his perfect four-pawed pal in an English Bulldog dubbed Winston. The proud new puppy Poppa Tweeted a pic as he confided to fans ‘I’m so thankful this year for family, friends, loved ones, fans, and my new buddy Winston! My early Christmas gift!’
Sci-fi fans may know him best as Buffy’s Watcher Rupert Giles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer or as King Uther Pendragon in Merlin, but Anthony Head‘s greatest role may just be as a defender of our four-legged friends. The beloved British actor and his partner Sarah Fisher, who together help horses and other companion animals at Tilley Farm, celebrated Battersea’s Dogs and Cats Home’s 150th anniversary at the Collars & Coats Gala Ball.
Congratulations to new pet parent Tracey E. Bregman! The Young & The Restless star revealed to fans on Facebook that she recently adopted Hazel, a 2.7-lb. bundle of barking joy. The tiny Maltese enjoyed lapping up the limelight at Connected’s Celebrity Gift Suite for the American Music Awards.
Paris Hilton, who provides the voice of a pampered Poodle in the ABC Family Fido-friendly flick The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation, will share the spotlight with her four-pawed pal Peter Pan when her new reality series airs on the Oxygen Channel. The socialite was recently spotted shooting for the show with her charming Chihuahua.
Our condolences to Kat Von D, who is mourning the loss of her purring pal, Valentine, who died in a fire at her L.A. home. The tattoo artist previously shared her sorrow with fans when her Sphynx Ludwig crossed rainbow bridge in September 2009.
As the barking buddy of reality personality Lisa Vanderpump, little Gigolo has become accustomed to the sight of celebrities. The precious Pomeranian has chronicled his encounters with Gerard Butler, Slash, Dolph Lundgren and Lisa Rinna in the photo gallery section of his very own website, and now LaToya Jackson‘s photo has been added to Gigolo’s list of luminary friends. The dainty dog donned a velour leisure suit for his dinner date with Ms. Jackson at Villa Blanca.
