Lady Gaga became the proud owner of her own adorable little monster in April 2014, when she brought home French bulldog Asia (aka Batpig).

Love the bully breed? Then don’t miss Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram. The Sports Illustrated model (and Mrs. John Legend) offers up a steady stream of photos featuring her trio of flat-faced darlings: English bulldog Puddy, French bulldog Pippa (bottom right) and new addition Penny, a three-legged Frenchie. “She is our new little tripod lovebug,” Teigen tweeted after she and Legend adopted the once-abused Penny from a rescue organization in June 2014. “Yes. She has 3 legs WHICH IS MORE THAN YOU OKAY.”

Amid the colorful chaos that is Miley’s Instagram are dozens of photos of her dogs: Bean, Mary Jane, Happy and Emu (cuddling below with his tongue out).

These floppy-eared fellas don’t belong to Carrie Underwood, but she posed with them to raise adoption awareness while volunteering at a shelter.

When he’s not busy making the world laugh and cringe with his comedy, Ricky Gervais is a champion for all creatures great and small. The staunch animal campaigner uses his Instagram to urge his followers to adopt rescues, a cause he promotes with lots of cute dog photos.
Even if you’re not a fan of Chelsea Handler’s sharp-tongued comedy, you’ll smile at her Instagram, which is filled with pic after warm-fuzzy pic of her beloved dogs, Chunk (below) and Jax.
How much does Kaley Cuoco dote on her dogs? She named her Instagram after Norman, one of her three rescue pit bulls (Shirley and Loretta are his furry sisters).

Looking for a day-brightener? The Instagram of longtime animal rights supporter Ellen DeGeneres offers loads of awwww-inducing doggie pictures.

Fitz joined big sister Chloe, a 6-year-old lab mix. In April, the former reality star couldn’t resist adding a new rescue puppy to her bowwow brood.
