Top 5 Celebrity Pet Scandals - Paris HiltonPublished December 15, 2008
Dog: She now has 17 dogs! (Mostly Chihuahuas).
Fun Facts: Paris Hilton's most famous dog is named Tinkerbell, however, now-a-days she can be seen carrying more than one pooch and has commented she has about 17 dogs right now! She recently said her dogs keep having babies and she feels bad about giving them away. The heiress has also paid to have a doggy mansion built to look exactly like her Los Angeles home - on the outside and inside! This doggy mansion sits in her backyard, has a chandelier, and furniture that is an exact replica of what she owns in her luxurious home.
Scandal: Her dog Tinkerbell, went missing August 11, 2004. The hotel heiress was willing to pay a pretty penny for Tinkerbell's safe return, upping the reward from $1,000 to $5,000 when she posted signs all over Los Angeles on Tuesday with a picture of herself and Tinkerbell with the message, "Please help. This dog is like a child to me." At first, Hilton family personal assistant Wendy White claimed the missing pup was her dog Napoleon, a ruse to throw off any potential kidnappers from holding the real missing pooch for ransom. Thankfully, Tinkerbell was returned to Ms. Hilton and her happy home (though not many details about where or how she was found were ever released).
