Top 5 Celebrity Pet Scandals - Gisele BundchenPublished December 15, 2008
Dog: A Yorkie named Vida
Fun Facts: Vida means "life" in Portuguese. One of Gisele's favorite things to do is walk her dog and she has been quoted saying this about her love for animals, "I love horses. If I could, I would ride the whole day. When I get married, I'll live in the countryside, ride on horses and live among cows, chickens and dogs."
Scandal: In 2004, Gisele offered a reward of $5,000 after her pet yorkie went missing. She posted anonymous reward posters all over Hollywood of the missing pup, reportedly following advice from Paris Hilton. A couple found Vida near Los Angeles and safely returned her. However, that night the couple were arrested at gunpoint by 3 detectives and brought to the police station for further questioning. They were cleared and released after the police explained that Ms. Bundchen reported them for "pet theft." The couple never did receive a reward from Gisele.
