12 Most Lovable TV Pets (PHOTOS)
Giggy (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)
Lisa Vanderpump’s “sexy” dog (her words, not ours) steals the spotlight anytime he appears on the Bravo show. Lisa’s husband, Ken, carries the little pooch around so much that we aren’t sure if Giggy has ever walked on his own. Giggy’s signature puffed-out look has been compromised by his alopecia, but don’t fret, Lisa dresses him up to cover the bald spots.
Salem (Sabrina the Teenage Witch)
Folklore says that black cats are bad luck, but Salem is the exception. He lives with the Spellmans: Sabrina, Hilda and Zelda. One unusual feature of this TV pet? He can talk! His corny jokes and life advice help Sabrina navigate life.
Perhaps the most famous dog of them all, Lassie is a true superstar pet. This collie starred in everything under the sun from books to movies to television and more. It’s no wonder she had an entire series named after her!
Bruley (Queer Eye)
The Fab Five’s newest addition is Bruley the French Bulldog. He even has his own Instagram account— you can follow him @BruleyBru. His owner is a producer on the show, so it’s no surprise that the Fab Five became the Super Six with this furry friend.

Comet (Full House)
Comet was the classic family dog: a (mostly) well-trained Golden Retriever. After the original series ended in 1995, Comet’s legacy lived on with the Tanner family through his children and grandchildren on Fuller House
with Comet Jr., Comet Jr. Jr., Comet Jr. Jr. Jr. and Cosmo.
Bandit (The Office)
After Dwight kills Angela’s cat, Sprinkles, he tried adopting a new cat for her. Angela wanted no parts of Garbage, so Dwight released him into the “wild.” Well, Andy found him and gifted him to Angela, who named him Bandit. The cat is often at the office during the later seasons, where he can be seen chewing through wires and wearing a diaper courtesy of Jim.
Scooby-Doo (Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!)
Scooby-Doo joined his pals Daphne, Fred, Velma and Shaggy whenever they tried to solve mysteries on the cartoon series. The Great Dane paved the way for his cousin, Scooby-Dum, and his nephew, Scrappy-Doo, to come along in the Mystery Machine, too.
Marcel was Ross’s pet monkey who absolutely loved listening to “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” However, Ross had to part ways with Marcel once the monkey had his sexual awakening. Thankfully, Ross can still visit him at the San Diego Zoo.
Snoopy (The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show)
Snoopy and Charlie got their own television show in 1983 after many comics, movies and television specials. The series itself was short-lived and only lasted until 1985. Nevertheless, Snoopy and his pals can still be seen around certain holidays in specials like It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
and A Charlie Brown Christmas
Ghost (Game of Thrones)
Jon Snow adopted the runt of the direwolf litter after finding him away from the pack in Season 1 of the HBO show. His white fur and red eyes perfectly complement his name. Since the beginning of the series, Ghost has been by Jon’s side, and he is expected to be in the final season.

Tinkerbell (The Simple Life)
They say a dog is a man’s best friend, but clearly Tinkerbell the Chihuahua is a girl’s best friend. Despite starring on The Simple Life
with her then-BFF Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton’s partner-in-crime was none other than this small pooch. The pair went everywhere together— even to Fashion Week! Sadly, Tinkerbell passed away in 2015 at 14 years old.
Perry the Platypus (Phineas and Ferb)
The most unusual pet happens to be a blue platypus that is also a spy. Phineas and Ferb are always too focused on their next adventure when their beloved pet disappears and goes off to fight the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Perry always makes it back home before they start to worry.
