About This Quiz

When it comes to pets, we welcome them into our homes and they instantly become part of the family. It is no different for celebrities, as we have seen many celebrities adopt dogs, cats and even pigs! They name them and then share photos with their fans thanks to social media. Heck, some of these celebrity pets even have their own Instagram accounts. And like their owners, some of these celebrity pets have a crazy number of followers on social media. Is it sad to strive to be as popular as a dog? Perhaps not.

For this quiz, we are going to share photos of the celebrity pet and then you have to match each pet with the celebrity to which it belongs. So, which pop singer has their own pig? How about that Hunger Games actor that has an adorable dog? Yeah, we will test you on those and many more during this quiz. Can you make it to the end of the quiz without getting any wrong? It is not easy, but how big of a pop culture expert are you? Well, we will soon know, as you work your way through the entire quiz!
