The songstress with the big voice and big heart for rescue dogs
By Stefanie Gibson
Ariana Grande has eight dogs. That’s right, eight. By the time you’re done reading this she’ll likely have more.
Not only is she an incredibly talented singer but she’s an amazing dog mom and advocate. Her love for dogs has certainly won her “awesome points” with us at Get Leashed. Unlike other celebrities who look at the pedigree before the dog, Ariana has adopted many of her dogs from shelters and other sad-puppy circumstances. She also works hard to persuade her fans to do the same.
Cinnamon, Coco, Fawkes Kitty, Ophelia, Toulouse, Sirius, Strauss and, most recently, Lafayette all proudly call Ms. Grande mom. With everything from a pit bull to a Chihuahua-beagle cross, it’s clear that Ariana’s pack is a true reflection of her love of all dogs.
Who are these special dogs?
This adorable dachshund-German shepherd is the OG. As the first dog, she’s certainly had to learn a hard lesson in sharing.
While she claims there’s equal love for all of her dogs, Ariana has admitted that she has a special “soul connection” with Toulouse. Can you blame her? He is incredibly cute and the one most often featured in her Instagram snaps.
This chocolate Labradoodle was the third pup to join the family. Don’t read too much into the name, Ariana’s friend named her.
The Shiba Inu was another adoption. We have to say, her name describes her unique look perfectly. Although Fawkes has moved in with a friend of the family because of some disagreements with the other dogs, we still consider her one of Ariana’s.
Cinnamon is an adorable little rescue pit bull. After being abandoned in a cardboard box as a baby this dog hit the lottery when she crossed paths with Ariana. Now she’s living happily in the lap of luxury.
Ariana’s love for Harry Potter is something she’s been very outspoken about. It comes as no surprise that she named her sixth dog-baby after Harry’s godfather.
This tiny guy was added to the family in 2015 and we’re so glad he was. He exudes sweetness.
This adorable bloodhound, the newest member of the Grande family, was announced to Ariana’s fans back in June with a few adorable snaps.
