Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton cuddles her dogs on Robertson Boulevard in Los Angeles in December 2007. The famous heiress and businesswoman is well-known for her affinity for small dogs, and she has brought many tiny canines into her home. Her beloved Tinkerbell, a chihuahua, made headlines in 2004 when she went missing and sparked a nationwide dog-hunt. A $5,000 reward was offered and Tinkerbell was eventually found a week later. Tinkerbell has since written a memoir called "The Tinkerbell Hilton Diaries: My Life Tailing Paris Hilton" and a toy manufacturer even sold plush replicas of the pampered pup.

While Paris is a fan of tiny dogs, her discomfort for animals of a larger variety (cows, goats, etc.) were on full display when she worked on a farm in "The Simple Life" reality show. We've been told no animals were harmed during filming of the show.
