Chloe Kardoggian with tongue hanging outChloe was born on May 11, 2004, in Florida. When she turned out too small to breed, she was given away. She bounced around through 3 homes in one extended family as people had time for her, and eventually wound up with an elderly grandmother. When Chloe was 9, and the grandmother could 
no longer care for her due to medical issues, the woman’s granddaughter (a friend of a friend of Chloe’s current owner) worked to find Chloe a home. It just so happened that her soon-to-be new human was looking for a dog just like her!

Shortly after going to live with her new human, they started an Instagram 
account to keep Chloe’s old family current on 
her new life in New York City. She was so photogenic 
and eager to pose that they started having some 
fun with the captions and photos and soon enough 
Chloe’s followers were climbing by the thousands. At 12 years old, Chloe and her human are doing great work to spread the word about senior dog adoptions and Chihuahua rescue. Read on to learn more about Chloe’s story.

How did you and your parents find one another?

When my previous human became too frail to care for me, her granddaughter posted a message on Facebook asking if anyone was looking to adopt me. I was 9 1/2 at the time, and it wasn’t the easiest job to find a home that would want a dog of my age. It so happened that my soon-to-be human was looking for a dog after her last dog passed away and she loves adopting older dogs.

How did you find your way into the spotlight?

Social media has always been the backbone of my fame since I met my human on Facebook. Once I was adopted, my human wanted to keep my previous family up to date on my new life so she thought I should have my own Instagram and a star was born! She caught on quickly to my love of the camera and fame – she points the camera at me and I give her magic.

Matt Lauer cuddling with Chloe

What’s been your favorite celebrity moment?

I really am so blessed! My human was super stoked about Dave Grohl. For me, snuggling with Matt Lauer was pretty amazing – he’s an excellent cuddler, as you can see.

Have you met any of the Kardashians yet?

I would love to meet the Kardashians, but they don’t seem to acknowledge that I’m their illegitimate relative. I was at the same event as Kim once, but she was gone before we ever saw her… I think they know my fame will eclipse theirs.

We love your shop. Who does the beautiful illustrations?

The illustrations are all done by my amazingly talented friend Elizabeth Caparaz. She is the only human I’ve met who can truly capture the essence of my beauty so perfectly. The graphic design items (stickers, calendars, etc.), are all done by my human, who is a graphic designer. (See Etsy shop here).

What are some of your favorite past times?

I’m nearing 13 in May, so I’m not gonna lie… I love a nap! I also love being chased around the ottoman in my living room for exercise. And in my spare time, I love to kiss humans as much as possible.

What’s your best trick?

Tricks? What are tricks? Why would I need to know them? This does not compute…

Who’s your favorite fellow celebrity dog?

Ella Bean is definitely my bestie. We became friends through our accounts and then our humans became friends in real life and now we all hang as much as we can, given our busy schedules. Plus we do lots of photo shoots together, like this one we just did for Moda Operandi. It is so fun to work with your friends!

What’s your advice for other adopted dogs, especially senior ones?

You’re never too old to fulfill your destiny! Whether it’s to become a star like me or anything else, we have plenty to contribute to the world!

Thanks Chloe Kardoggian for taking the time to chat with us (and we hope you can meet Kim one day!). Learn more about Chloe and her latest press, whereabouts and more on her website.

Her love of pets started from an early age with her childhood cocker spaniel, Peanut, and two cats. She is currently dog mom to Lexie, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

As a professional dog sitter for more than a decade, Sadie has cared for dozens of canines of various breeds, sizes and temperaments. The responsibility of caring for others' pets has helped her understand the importance of giving animals a loving home. She has experience potty and house training as well as teaching dogs tricks such as sit and shake. Sadie is passionate about canine well-being so she feeds her pup all-natural meals and no table scraps.

Sadie and her husband live in Washington DC and enjoy walking Lexie to nearby dog parks or patios and taking her canine companion on trips. Having an adventurous, long-haired Blenheim means frequent baths and home grooming to maintain a clean coat. A small dog also requires more frequent dental care and Sadie is proactive with Lexie's oral hygiene.

She has been covering dog-related topics since 2012 and is proud to share her latest personal experience, resources and information with fellow pet parents. Her expertise has appeared in many notable media outlets, including The New York Times' Wirecutter, Forbes, People, Reader's Digest, Apartment Therapy, and other regional news organizations.
