Does Joe Manganiello Have Any Pets?

Bubbles (Dog)

Breed: Chihuahua | Adopted 2021

Sofia Vergara adopted a senior chihuahua named Bubbles in 2021, who was eight years old at the time. The chihuahua famously isn’t a fan of Vergara, but immediately fell in love when she met her husband at the time, Joe Manganiello.

In July 2023, Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello celebrated the 10th birthday of Bubbles. The “Modern Family” actress and “Magic Mike” star each shared individual Instagram posts commemorating the milestone of their pup.

Later in July, the couple announced their split, with immediate speculation over who would keep Bubbles. Vergara has often joked about Bubbles being obsessed with Joe and said in Bubbles’ birthday post, “Feliz 10th cumpleaños my sweet, vicious Bubbles! No matter how many times u bite me I will always love u”.

In August 2023, it was revealed that Vergara agreed to give custody of Bubbles to Manganiello. Then in February 2024, Joe and Bubbles both got European passports to live in Italy together.
