Does Beyoncé Have Any Pets?

Puppy Carter (Dog)

Breed: Shih Tzu/Maltese | Adopted Aug 2016

In August of 2016, Beyoncé and her daughter Blue Ivy Carter were spotted walking the streets of New York with a brand-new puppy. Dressed in a fashionable red skirt, frilly blouse, and a pair of sandals, Beyoncé walked alongside the equally stylish Blue in a beautiful pink dress with their new puppy. The trio reportedly jetted off to Camp David in Maryland to celebrate Labor Day weekend and Beyoncé’s 35th birthday with Michelle Obama and her daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama.

Munchie (Dog)

Breed: Shih Tzu

Beyonce previously had another dog, a Shih Tzu named Munchie, that was a gift from a cousin in 2004. That same year, Munchie was named “Most Eligible Pet” by Animal Fair. in 2009, Munchie became a media controversy, with rumors that Beyonce was neglecting the dog due to her busy schedule and pretty much abandoned it at her record company office for a whole summer. Beyonce set the record straight, saying that due to her busy schedule, Munchie’s primary caregiver ended up being the cousin that originally gifted the dog to her.
