Dog's aren't just man's best friend, they're family.

Although celebrities are busy working and traveling, they still make time for their adorable pooches.

Here are 15 celebrities who have adorable pups that changed their lives for the better.

I mean, let's be real, what dog doesn't add more happiness and joy into a person's life!

1. Simon Cowell

The America's Got Talent judge is strict on screen, but he's probably quite the sweetheart with his adorable pooches.

His Yorkshire terriers Squiddly, Diddly and Freddie apparently love to bark, but they failed to sound the alarm when intruders broke into Cowell's home in London a few years back.

Nevertheless, he still loves them!

2. Meghan Markle

Before Markle married Prince Harry, the Suits actress would always post pictures of her beloved rescue dogs Guy and Bogart on Instagram.

Unfortunately, Bogart, the labrador/shepherd mix, was reportedly too old to fly to England with the newlyweds.

The Duchess of Sussex was only able to bring over her beagle, Guy.

3. Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock is a huge dog lover and has adopted three dogs with special needs from California animal shelters.

Poppy is a Chihuahua-Pomeranian mix with three legs, Ruby is a two-legged Chihuahua, and BeBe (not pictured in the photo above) is a Chihuahua that's missing an eye.

4. Jennifer Aniston

Justin is reportedly keeping the other pit bull.

5. Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake has two wonderful boxer pooches Buckley and Brennan. His wife, actress Jessica Biel, has Tina, a pit bull lab mix.

The Hollywood heartthrob's adorable pooch Einstein died last year, but he still deserves a spot on this list!

12. Ryan Reynolds

The Deadpool star calls his adorable doggo, Baxter, his best friend!

In an interview with ABC News, Reynolds said, “I saw this big, dumb-looking Retriever staring up at me…I whispered to him, ‘Hey, let’s get the hell out of here.’ And he jumped up, like he spoke English fluently. He came with me, he jumped in the car, and we’ve been best buddies ever since.”

13. Serena Williams

If you're a big fan of tennis player Serena Williams, then you're already well acquainted with her beloved Yorkie, Chip.

The two have a close bond, but according to a recent Instagram post, Chip is still warming up to Williams' young daughter.
