Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., known professionally as Snoop Dogg (previously Snoop Doggy Dogg and briefly Snoop Lion), is an American rapper, songwriter, media personality, actor, and businessman.
We all remember how many times this talented rapper changed his name. But his stage name always revolved around one major topic: animals. Today we will tell you all about the pets that Snoop Dogg has ever had.
How Many Pets Does Snoop Have?
Snoop Dogg absolutely loves pets. The proof of that is that he has 11 dogs. But not just dogs. On top of that, he also has two Siamese cats named after the late-singers Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis. So that brings us to a total of 13 pets for Snoop Dog.
But this number is very likely to change in the future because Snoop often says that there is always a place in his heart for a new pet. He’s been involved in several animal charities in recent years, which proves how much he cares about cats and dogs.
Does Snoop Dogg Have Any Dogs?
Snoop dog is apparently fond of dogs because he has 11 of them currently. But according to what Snoop Dogg says during his interviews, this number might increase soon. Can one really have too many dogs, right?
“There is always room for another dog in Casa de Snoop. If he really needed a home then he has one with us.”
Snoop is big on dogs and even got involved in a case after watching a video of a dog abandoned just before Christmas. In the video released by the RSPCA, the poor puppy named Snoop is seen being dumped out of a car, which is of course a horrible thing to do. Snoop Dogg has decided not to turn a blind eye to this situation and offered to adopt that poor pup. In the end, the puppy found a loving home and a new owner.
It is far not the first time Snoop Dogg has been involved in the animal world though; in 2016, he released a series called “Planet Snoop” where he makes funny animal voiceovers. You should watch this, it’s hilarious!
In 2020, Snoop Dogg invested in vegan food company Original Foods, which makes Pigless Pork Rinds, which he has said tasted really good. He is an ambassador for the vegan brand Beyond Meat. So looks like his love for animals doesn’t stop at just adopting them. He made a conscious choice not to eat meat either.
He is also an investor in Dog for Dog food, which donates a bag of food to a rescue shelter for every bag sold.
What Are Snoop Dogg’s Pets?
Now that you know that Snoop Dogg is a great pet lover, let’s discuss what pets he has exactly, and what their names are.
Julez is Snoop’s blue French bulldog, he got adopted in November 2014. He is so adorable and definitely has some of that charm of his owner. In May 2015, Julez even got his own Instagram account and instantly became a social media star with over 60K followers. He’s often seen backstage with Snoop Dogg having fun and enjoying his life just like his owner. You can check out Julez’s Instagram account here for a true rapper dog experience.
The Dog Pack. As mentioned earlier, Snoop has 11 dogs, with Julez being the most popular of them( Social media power, right?). The reports are saying he’s had up to 11 dogs in his pack, including multiple Pitbulls and other mixed dog breeds over the years.
Here are the members of the pack we know about:
- Handler’s Jax is a boxer.
- Chunk is a chow mix.
- Kavanaugh’s Taz is a Siberian husky.
- Freedom is an Alaskan husky.
Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis are Snoop’s Siamese cats. They were named after the late singers Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis. As you can see it’s not all about dogs for Snoop Dogg, it’s nice to know that he is a bit of a cat person too.
Snoop Dogg has built his rap career on being a doglike character and even chose his stage name accordingly, but it turns out that he has a genuine love for animals, including pets like cats and dogs.
My name is Katie, and I have had different pets at home for as long as I can remember. While I can definitely say I love all animals in general, my heart belongs to cats and dogs. I know you are supposed to choose one or the other, but I could never really decide. I’ve also owned hamsters and fish when I was a kid, and they filled my childhood with very delightful memories.
