Along with dog siblings Dreamer and “Puppy” (who passed away in 2016) and latest addition Maca, Efron’s adopted dog Chapelle has got a pretty rowdy home life. Zac Efron and his girlfriend Sami Miro took their relationship to the next level when they adopted the adorable little Chapelle from a shelter.
Sami and Zac might not be together anymore, but Chapelle is still going strong. He’s a good-looking dog with a white front and a long snout, and we’re sure that the dog is just as happy with the relationship as clear dog-lover Efron is.
Kristen Bell: Mr. Shakes and Lola
We all know Kristen Bell's sloth story, but this actress really loves her dogs as well. Lola is a sweet Welsh Corgi-Chow Chow mix who had been returned to her shelter by a couple of different families due to difficulty training, but Kristen saw something in her.
She described the dog as an escape artist. After that came Mr. Shakes, a Chihuahua-Welsh Corgi mix, who was nearing euthanization before Bell came to rescue him. Lola needed a friend to be around when Bell is working long hours, and Mr. Shakes was the perfect fit. There have been even more pets in the Bell household, too.
Brooks Laich: Koda
We shouldn't be surprised that a professional hockey player chose a Siberian Husky as his pet of choice. Koda ended up being more than just a pet for Laich; however – when Laich and his actress girlfriend, Julianne Hough, called it quits in 2020, there was only one thing that could get them back together: the dog.
After losing their two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, the couple adopted Koda, and neither one could bear to be away from him. They reunited and have announced they are working on the relationship again. Hopefully, things work out for them, but one way or another, they'll always have Koda at their side.
Zac Efron: Maca
Maca joined the Efron household in 2018, and she's lucky to be alive. The dog was scheduled to be euthanized, but Zac Efron – a hero to dogs everywhere – stepped in and brought her home with him instead.
Efron was in need of some more puppy love in his life – only a few years before Maca joined the family, his dog “Puppy” passed away. While Maca was just going to be a temporary visitor for Zac...well, we all know where this story is going. He couldn't give her back. Just look at those eyes – who could blame him.
Emmy Rossum: Cinnamon, Sugar, and Pepper
Emmy has always been a proponent of adopting and the no-kill movement, and her life has been one adopted dog after another. Some of her recent dogs have all had a certain theme to the names since they are named Cinnamon, Sugar, and Pepper (as well as a cat named Fiona).
The animals add a great deal to Emmy's life, especially for a person living alone. Emmy and her dog Pepper have joined the Best Friends Animal Society's Save Them All Campaign, which has celebs posing with their own rescued in order to convince others to do the right thing. It saves pets' lives and makes families better.
