In honour of World Puppy Day, we’ve rounded up 10 of the cutest celebrity puppies – including some that are famous enough to have their own Instagram accounts. Check out our favourite stars with their beloved pooches.

Rosanna Davison and Ted

The animal-loving model is smitten with her real-life teddy bear, who frequently joins her on shoots. She has posed with Ted, her Pomeranian pooch, so many times she has even described him as the world’s “first doggy supermodel”.

Jamie Heaslip and Jay Z

The rugby star loves bulldogs, and was delighted to pick up one of his own six years ago. As well as being a dog lover, Jamie is a keen hip-hop fan and named his pet after one of his favourite rappers.  

Holly Carpenter, Gus and Toby


Holly adores her two dogs, Gus, a four-year-old pug, and Toby, a two-year-old terrier. She is passionate about animal welfare charities like Dogs Trust, and rescued both of her dogs.

Tom Hardy and Woody


The British actor's love of dogs has been well-documented, and he’s not shy about admitting what a softie he is, even taking his Labrador cross Woody down the red carpet at the London premiere for Legend last year. He also posed with his canine co-star Zora at the Hollywood premiere for The Drop.

Justin Bieber and Phil

The 21-year-old pop star took to Instagram last month to introduce the world to Phil, his adorable Labrador puppy.

David and Olive Beckham

One of the world’s most photogenic families recently welcomed a very photo-friendly face, their pet puppy Olive. The black cocker spaniel even has her own Instagram account, with an impressive 83.4k followers.

Donal Skehan and Max

The home-grown celebrity chef recently relocated to Los Angeles and brought his pet pooch along too. Max, a cross between a border collie and a Jack Russell, is living a dog’s dream, with a live-in cook to regularly steal snacks from.

Cara Delevingne and Leo

The British supermodel is so glam even her pet dog gets to sit #frow at Fashion Week. Cara’s puppy Leo enjoyed one of the hottest tickets in town when he joined her at Chanel’s spring ’16 haute couture show – and was politely asked to leave after reportedly peeing on the catwalk. Well, that’s one way to review a collection.

Kylie Jenner, Norman and Bambi


Anyone who follows the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner klan on Snapchat will be familiar with her gorgeous Italian greyhounds Norman and Bambi. After being accused of underfeeding the pups, Kylie revealed her pampered pooches eat a strictly organic diet and drink only filtered water.
