Best known for her role in “Orange Is the New Black,” Australian actress Ruby Rose spends plenty of time with her little rescue dog, Ru. Rescued from a hoarder’s puppy breeding farm in 2012, Ru is the apple of Ruby Rose’s eye if the commissioned portraits of the dog are any indication.
When she went on vacation during the filming of “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” Rose brought the small dog along for some rest and relaxation. Rose has a history of adopting dogs that need homes badly – there has also been Chance, who needed expensive vet bills, and Cricket, who was missing half a leg.
Lena Dunham: Lamby
In 2017, fans started to get worried for Lamby, the cream-colored mutt that had so often dominated Lena Dunham's social media feeds. The dog disappeared, replaced by a pair of new poodles, Susan and Karen. Dunham had adopted Lamby in 2013 but later had to return him to a facility in Los Angeles due to behavioral problems.
Dunham stated that Lamby was horribly mistreated as a puppy, which created these problems, and no small social media storm erupted, with people saying Dunham lied – including the shelter Dunham originally adopted Lamby from. They stated the dog was mild-mannered and well behaved. The dog now appears to be doing fine.
Nikki Reed: Ira Reed
Nikki Reed, along with husband Ian Somerhalder, picked up a couple of canines before they had their own children. One of them was Ira Reed, a stout German shepherd. Sadly, Ira passed away in 2018 after being with Nikki Reed even before Ian came into the picture. She and her previous husband, Paul McDonald, adopted the dog.
Both Nikki and Ian are big into adopting pets. Their full family now not only includes their daughter Bodhi, but several other cats, dogs, and even horses.
Simon Cowell: Daisy and Freddie
You'd be forgiven to think that Simon Cowell doesn't have any space in his cold, hard heart for pets, but that's where you're wrong. Quite wrong. It turns out Cowell is a really big animal lover. Daisy, for instance, comes all the way from Barbados – Cowell came across her and took her in without a thought when she was homeless and hungry.
There's also Freddie, one of his mom's dogs. There are never too many dogs for Simon. He couldn't bear the thought of not having them around.
Simon Cowell: Squiddly and Diddly
Cowell is such a loving character when he isn't judging people's singing. He loves all his dogs, but his Yorkshire Terriers Squiddly and Diddly might have the most of his affection. Apparently, he's willing to shell out almost two hundred thousand British pounds to a South Korean company to try and clone them.
These have to be some of the most spoiled dogs that Hollywood has ever seen – they often travel with him by jet, have their own white leather seats, and enjoy fancy mineral water.
