Family of Dogs
Elton John is clearly a dog lover, who reportedly owns over 20 dogs including border terriers, an Irish wolfhound, a Labrador, German shepherds and Spaniels. His Cocker Spaniel Arthus was the best man at his civil partnership ceremony to David Furnish. And despite having a classic song called “Honkey Cat”, Elton John doesn’t have any pet cats.
