Mac Miller Move Over, Ariana ... I Got A New Puppy Love

1/18/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0117-mac-miller-tmz-01Mac Miller's gf, Ariana Grande, better hide her Louboutins ... the rapper has a new addition with sharp, destructive little teeth.

Sources close to Mac tell us he picked up a new pooch -- a 3-month-old pit mix he's named Myron. We're told Mac got him Sunday after seeing the pup in the window of Wylder's Holistic Pet Center & Rescue in Studio City.

Easy to see why Mac scooped him up -- the dog's really flippin' cute, and he'll be living it up. We're told Mac threw down about $1,200 for toys, food and treats.

Looks like Mac's finally recovering from having his last dog, Ralph, stolen 2 years ago. He offered a reward, but never got him back.

Keep Myron close, Mac ... he's too adorable.

Obama Dog Sunny The Bitch Has Bite But No History of Aggression

1/13/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0112-obama-dog-sunny-gettyThe Obamas' dog, Sunny, has a disposition that fits her name, and until this week she's never chomped down on anyone.

We broke the story ... the Portuguese Water Dog bit a family friend in the face Monday during a visit to the White House. The wound required stitches and she may end up with a permanent scar.

We've been in touch with people who are frequently around the pooch, and we're told she's never bitten anyone else -- ever. To the contrary, the 4-year-old has a loving, even temperament.

One source noted the dog gets groomed every month and 4 to 5 people are handling her at the same time while she gets sculpted with scissors and hand dried. The dog has never shown any aggression during the grooming process.

The 18-year-old girl who got bit is pissed off at Sunny, we're told, but her family is not planning any legal action.

FUN FACT: In many states, there were laws that protected dog owners from lawsuits the first time a dog bit a person. The reason -- until dog owners are on notice of aggression, it's unfair to punish them. The "One Bite Rule" -- which essentially means every dog is entitled to one free bite -- has been repealed in most states.

Obama Dog Sunny Bites White House Guest

1/12/2017 10:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0112-obama-dog-bite-victim-05

President Obama had to deal with a small domestic crisis at the White House -- a family friend was bitten by Sunny, the First Family's 4-year-old dog.

We're told the incident occurred Monday when the 18-year-old was visiting the White House. Sources connected to the girl tell us she went to pet and kiss Sunny, and the dog bit her on the face.

Sunny -- a female Portuguese Water Dog -- left a nasty gash under the girl's eye. We're told the Obamas' family physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, checked her out and decided she needed stitches.

She's gonna be okay, but we're told she'll likely have a small scar ... which upset her. She posted various pics of the injury and her visit to Dr. Jackson on social media. 

The bite is out of character for the breed, which typically is not aggressive in family situations. The Obamas have 2 Portuguese Water Dogs -- 8-year-old Bo has the title,"First Dog."

We reached out to the White House. No comment on the incident.

Justin Bieber Gives Away Another Dog New Owner Paying Hefty Price

1/4/2017 2:10 PM PST
Exclusive Details

0104-bieber-and-dog-tmz-instagramJustin Bieber's already done with the puppy he got less than 6 months ago -- one of his dancers adopted it, but is now stuck with the bill for a very expensive surgery.

C.J. Salvador tells TMZ he and his parents got Bieber's 7-month-old chow, named Todd, when Justin decided -- once again -- he couldn't care for it due to his work schedule.

Remember, Justin's previously ditched a hamster, a monkey and another dog ... so it's a disturbing pattern -- and this time there's a costly twist.

C.J. says during a recent checkup they found out Todd was born with severe hip dysplasia, and vets say it's likely he won't be able to walk by age 1. He says the only hope is a corrective surgery which will cost about $8,000.  

0104_justin_bieber_todd_the_dog_instagram-swipeWith the help of 90 donors -- including Jaden Smith -- C.J. has raised more than the $8k. Interestingly, Bieber has NOT donated.

C.J. says Justin didn't know about the defect, nor did he tell him about it. He says he didn't want to bother JB because Todd isn't his responsibility anymore.

It's true. 3 words you don't associate with Justin Bieber: responsible pet owner.

Carrie Fisher Daughter Will Care for Beloved Dog Gary

12/28/2016 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1227-billie-lourd-dog-carrie-fisher-gary-INSTAGRAM-GETTY-02Carrie Fisher's cherished dog -- a 4-year-old pooch named Gary -- will now be cared for by Carrie's daughter ... TMZ has learned.

Family friends are telling us Billie Lourd will take custody of the French bulldog, which was by Carrie's side on the plane from London to LAX when Carrie's heart stopped. The pooch also visited Carrie at UCLA Medical Center.

Billie already has a French bulldog named Tina, that's best friends with Gary. We're told she wants to make sure the 2 get along in the long term and she's able to handle the added responsibility.

A family source told TMZ, Carrie always wanted Billie to take Gary if something happened to her. If, for some reason, Billie can't care for Gary for the long haul, the dog will remain in the family.

The dog was like a child to Carrie, who carted her best friend almost everywhere she went ... even interviews.

Gary was adopted as a service pet to help Carrie with her bipolar disorder.

Kelly Osbourne Get That Aggressive Pit Bull Off My Flight!!!

12/21/2016 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kelly Osbourne claims a pit bull attacked her Pomeranian at LAX and it was therefore unfit to fly on the same plane with her dog ... but her complaint fell on deaf ears.

Kelly claimed the pit went after her pooch in an LAX parking lot, and coincidentally the owner of the other dog was on the same flight to NYC as Kelly, and she wanted to bring the dog.

We're told JetBlue did a once-over on the pit bull -- a 1-year-old rescue with service dog credentials -- and determined it was safe to board.

The owner and pit bull were seated about 10 rows behind Kelly and there was no further incident.

In the end, the Pomeranian -- which was not hurt -- won. It flew first class.

Anna Faris Coughs Up $5k in Lost Chihuahua Caper

12/17/2016 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1216-anna-faris-tmzAnna Faris paid thousands of bucks as a penalty for giving the family dog away.

Anna sent a $5,000 check to Kinder4Rescue earlier this month for giving away Pete the Chihuahua she shared with hubby Chris Pratt ... without notifying the rescue org.

Pete apparently escaped or was thrown out of his adoptive home and surfaced on the streets looking like skin and bones.

A microchip led Kinder4Rescue back to Anna, and the org demanded the $5k penalty she agreed to pay if she gave the dog away without prior notification.

Pete's still hangin' at Kinder4Rescue ... in search of a new home.

Tennessee Wildfire Massive Bald Eagle Evacuation Underway at Dollywood

11/29/2016 8:11 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1129-dollywood-eaglesupdate_graphic_red_bar9:55 AM PST -- Dolly just released a statement on the fire, saying, "I am praying for all the families affected by the fire and the firefighters who are working so hard to keep everyone safe. It is a blessing that my Dollywood theme park, the DreamMore Resort and so many businesses in Pigeon Forge have been spared."update_grey_gray_barDolly Parton's Dollywood is under siege from wildfires which have triggered a rescue mission for several bald eagles inside one of the theme park's sanctuaries.  

Dollywood, which is near the fires raging in Gatlinburg, TN, is also home to the American Eagle Foundation -- a group dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating birds of prey. The group shelters nearly a dozen bald eagles, and we're told staffers rounded up 50 of the birds Monday night.

We're told there are still a handful left to be captured and moved. The foundation's President, Al Cecere, tells TMZ the sanctuary's location puts the birds at serious risk for smoke inhalation. They'll remain at a nearby convention center until the air is clear and the park is safe.

Dollywood evacuated guests Monday, but so far firefighters have kept the flames at bay.
