Roscoe Hamilton (Dog)
Lewis Hamilton has a vegan bulldog named Roscoe, who has his own Instagram account. Hamilton, who’s also vegan, says told Vanity Fair that shifting his 10-year-old bulldog’s diet to vegan in 2020 has made him “like a puppy again” and improved his allergies, joints, and breathing. The son of two champion show dogs, Roscoe is also a model who is said to earn $700 per photo shoot. Hamilton has even frozen Roscoe’s champion sperm so he can continue to breed him!
Along with Roscoe, Lewis Hamilton had a rescued English Bulldog named Coco he adopted in 2014. Coco was going to be put down due to her health, but Hamilton saved her. Coco passed away in his arms from a heart attack in June 2020 at the age of 6. Coco had health problems throughout her life, with Hamilton considering her lucky to have enjoyed the life that she had.
