Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are quickly becoming Brangelina 2.0, but with dogs instead of kids.
Selena already had five rescue dogs back home when she decided to adopt an adorable husky mix she named Baylor. Her boyfriend joined her at D'Arcy's Animal Rescue Centre in Winnipeg, Canada, where Selena was hoping to find a new puppy pal -- the poor pop princess reportedly misses her dogs back home, and she apparently needs a fluffy ball of fur to keep her company when the Biebs isn't around.
And Justin is also a big fan of man's best friend -- he previously adopted a Papillion named Sam from an animal shelter. The Biebs decided to adopt because he had just moved to a city where he didn't know anyone, but it's fairly easily to make a forever faithful friend by adopting a rescue dog.
So talk about puppy love! Justin and Selena's caring attitude toward doggies in danger might make them perfect for one another, but luckily they aren't the only celebrities who have adopted dogs from animal shelters.
In fact, another young celebrity couple also visited a shelter together to pick a perfect pet. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart decided that they wanted a canine companion while filming "Breaking Dawn," so they picked out an adorable mutt with mottled fur that they named Bear (it's impossible to decide which celebrity couple's canine is cuter!).
But while R-Patz and K-Stew adopted together, a breakup is what led their costar Kellan Lutz to rescue a very lucky dog. And like the Kardashian clan, Kellan seems to love "K" names -- he adopted his dog Kola when he broke up with his first girlfriend, and he found his furry friend Kevin on the street (wonder if he's arranged any dog playdates with his "Twilight" costars?).
Jennifer Aniston is another big-time dog lover that had two rescue pets, but unfortunately her beloved Welsh Corgi-terrier mix Norman passed away in May of this year. Jen loved her pet so much that she got her first tattoo in honor of his memory -- she now has her pet's name inked on her right foot. She also has a White German shepherd named Dolly that loves to sit in her lap (and chew up expensive rugs and shoes). Hopefully Jen's poor pet isn't getting too lonely without her old friend, but if she is, maybe it's time for her to consider adopting again.
America's other sweetheart, Sandra Bullock, also has a soft spot for dogs in danger -- especially those that are disabled. Back when she was with Jesse James, they adopted a one-eyed Chihuahua named Bebe, a three-legged mutt named Poppy, and a two-legged Chihuahua named Ruby (little Louis is certainly lucky to have so many friends to play with).
Sandra's former costar and rumored rebound Ryan Reynolds is also the proud owner of his own half Collie, half Golden Retriever shelter dog named Baxter. However, it's his new girlfriend Blake Lively's dog that recently made headlines -- in honor of his 35th birthday, she tied a bunch of balloons around her maltipoo named Penny and brought her to the set of his movie "R.I.P.D." Puppy love seems to be contagious lately -- hopefully Baxter and Penny are also feeling it since they'll probably be spending a lot of time together.
But no celebrity lover of animals can top Kelly Clarkson -- the "American Idol" star owns a whopping 50 pets. She's got 30 dogs, as well as horses, goats, and even two rescue pigs named Miss Daisy and Boss Hog. But Kelly is no crazy animal hoarder -- she started Eddie's Rescue Ranch to save unwanted animals as well as those that need extra care and attention, and they've got plenty of room to run and play.
So hopefully celebrities keep up the good work by adopting unwanted animals from shelters -- it's pretty great any time they take doggone unlucky pups and turn them into top dogs.More From This Contributor: Selena Gomez and Other Celebs that Have Faced Death Threats
