Drake's Pets

Does Drake Have Any Pets?

Drake's pets include two dogs named Winter and Diamond, and a Bengal cat named Crodie.

Winter (Dog)

Breed: American Bully | Adopted Dec 2016

Winter is an XL American Bully that Drake was gifted for Christmas 2016. This snowy cutie came from the famous American Bully breeder MVP Bullies in Atlanta, Georgia. Their puppies range in the $1,000s, with them regularly selling for $4-6,000. Drake’s little girl is rumored to have cost upwards of $20,000.

Diamond (Dog)

Breed: Akita | Adopted Feb 2016

Drake got Diamond as a puppy in February 2016. Diamond is an Akita, which is large breed of dog that come from the northern mountain regions of Japan. They look similar to the shiba inu, but grow to be much bigger and were used as hunting dogs in the past. To fit into their natural colder climate, they have a short-double-coat similar to Siberian huskies. Diamond also appeared with Drake in the digital booklet for his 2016 album Views.

Crodie (Cat)

Breed: Bengal

Drake has a Bengal cat named Crodie. “Crodie” or “Cro” is Toronto slang for a ride-or-die friend, which comes from a variation of “bro,” used by the Crips gang. When Drake first posted his cat to Instagram, he referred to her as “Cyatty,” which is a Toronto-Jamaican slang term for a “loud and obnoxious female.”

Reuben (Dog)

Breed: Akita | Adopted 2012

Before Diamond, Drake had an Akita named Reuben that he got in 2012. “Reuben” is Hebrew slang for “behold, a son” and is also the name of a delicious grilled sandwich made of corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Russian dressing, and rye bread. in 2016, Drake was extremely busy with his Summer Sixteen Tour with Future, and he just didn’t have time to care for him properly. So Drake left Reuben under the care of Cheri Wulff, a professional dog trainer who previously trained Reuben. Due to Drake’s crazy schedule, Drake agreed it was best for Reuben to stay with his trainer Wulff. Wulff was also a master trainer at Cesar Milan’s “Training Cesar’s Way,” which Reuben also attended.
