20 Celebrities Who Own Golden Retrievers Right Now

Here are 20 celebrities who are currently, to the best of my research, sharing their lives with a golden retriever or two. Warning: This list may include reality television stars.

1. Oprah Winfrey has two golden retrievers, Luca and Gracie. (as well as a few more four legged friends)…YOU get a treat, and YOU get a treat, and YOU get a treat..

2.  Adam Levine Maroon Five front man and judge on “The Voice”  (who was also most recently voted “Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine) lost his last golden retriever “Frankie Girl” last year.

Adam Levine Debuts New Golden Retriever Puppy on The Voice

I recently speculated that Adam Levine and his fiance Bahati Prinsloo welcomed a new golden retriever puppy into their lives. (Did Adam Levine and Bahati Prinsloo get a new Golden Retriever Puppy?)

Last night on The Voice, Adam Levine pulled out all the stops and introduced his new puppy “Charlie” to the world. He said “Something America doesn’t know about me is I got a new puppy, and her name is Charlie

Did Adam Levine and Bahati Prinsloo Get A New Golden Retriever Puppy?

I have to admit I was kinda bummed when I reported that Maroon 5 front man and judge on The Voice Adam Levine got a “golden doodle” for his birthday back in June. After saying goodbye to his previous golden, Frankie Girl, I assumed he may eventually take in another golden into his life (this purely based on personal experience that once you own a golden, nothing compares).

Today my Google searches contained a lot of “Adam Levine new dog Christo” searches.

I did a little investigating and the only thing I could come up with so far were two photos posted on Adam’s fiance Bahatii Prinsloo ‘s Instagram page of a cute little golden retriever puppy. (possibly named “Christo”)

STOP IT.

Happy Monday. </p data-recalc-dims=

If it’s true, congratulations to one super adorable couple!!!

Adam Levine’s (fairly new) Puppy – “Bones”

Did Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Adam Levine get a new dog?  Adam has yet to mention the death of his golden retriever “Frankie girl” publicly.  I did a blog post back in March about this and it is one of my most viewed posts:

Adam Levine Says Goodbye to His Golden Retriever Frankie Girl

Since there have been several search terms on my blog stats lately including “Adam Levine” “Dog” “Bones” I began searching the internet to try and answer that question and it looks like Adam got himself a “golden doodle” back in March of this year.

Here’s what I have found so far:

1)  A breeder stating she sold one of her golden doodles to Adam Levine.  Apparently he received the dog as a gift.

Cookers Urban Homestead - Golden Doodle Breeder - this photo has the caption "Sold to Adam Levine"

Cookers Urban Homestead – Golden Doodle Breeder – this photo has the caption “Sold to Adam Levine”

My Google search also revealed a Flickr page that looks to belong to the dog’s breeder.  The photo is copyrighted so just click here to view it.  It is accompanied by the following caption:

“I sold this puppy to Adam Levine from Maroon and The Voice in March 2013. He supposedly got the puppy as a birthday gift after his beloved Golden Retriever Frankie passed away. I still have not seen any photos of him with the puppy, but I’m sure they will be surfacing soon! Come on Adam, we want to see your new puppy!!

2)  This was on a forum thread from a site called Bellazon about Adam’s current girlfriend Nina Agdal and it read:

“Sure that is a real dog… Adam got it in March and also Behati has had pictures with it when they were still on / off dating (or she either was with Adam’s family, who is quite fond of her it seems even after their relationship fumbled, because she took this picture with the dog in April I think and they were supposed to be split by then).”

Bones_Adam_DogI think they are referring to the picture on the bottom right.  It almost doesn’t look real! (Click here to visit thread)

3)  An Instagram photo of someone who appears to be backstage at a taping of “The Voice”

4:  And there’s this tweet from Hart Hanson:

 

So there you have it.  Evidence seems to show that Adam Levine has replaced his beloved golden retriever Frankie girl with a golden doodle…”Bones”.

If you have any photos or information on “Bones” please share them in the comments.
