Paris Hilton spent $25,000 on two more miniaturized Pomeranians: ugh?


Don’t hate us, but CB & I were chatting about this Paris Hilton story and CB used the word “menagerie” and now all I can think about is how we’re all so classy. Anyway, Paris Hilton is still around. And she’s still buying animals. Ugh. Back in September 2014, Paris bought a $13,000 Pomeranian puppy. The puppy was some kind of specialty miniaturized Pomeranian, like he’s never going to weight more than 2 pounds. Which is basically just a fluffy rat. That puppy – Paris eventually named him Prince Hilton the Pom – has gotten a little bit older and a little bit bigger, so obviously Paris had to get some new puppies. Now Paris has purchased two more multi-thousand-dollar dogs:

Paris Hilton goes big when she goes small, dropping $25K on 2 dogs. Paris just nabbed 2 perky Pomeranians and accompanying bling at Betty’s Teacup Yorkies in Canada … then presented one to mommy Kathy Hilton as a 35th Anniversary gift.

How much dog does 25K get you? We’re told Paris’ 3-months-old pooch weighs in at 6 oz. while Kathy’s 6-month-old pom weighs 12 oz.

You may recall … Paris dropped $13K for another pom in September. $40K for less than 2 pounds of dog. Jeez.

Well, at least one of them is going to Kathy Hilton, although I’m not sure if that makes it better. As for the girl puppy Paris has kept for herself, Paris told The Daily Mail last night: “I love her. Her name’s Princess Paris Jr.” That poor dog. And good lord, Paris is horrible at naming animals. She should ask Sarah Palin to help her.

As I’ve said before, I don’t necessarily have a problem with people seeking out and buying a certain breed for a certain reason (like, allergies or wanting a guard dog or something). But when you’re spending $40,000 on three dogs just because “they’re little,” something is wrong. There are thousands of pound puppies that need a good home.

PS… LaineyGossip has photos – go here to see – of Paris Hilton in the back of Henry Cavill’s car last night, leaving a pre-Globes event. Paris and Cavill? UGH.

    We’re looking for a dog. We afreed that it would be a shelter . I cannot by a breeder dog when they’re so many that need a home.

    Dogs shouldn’t be used as props. They’re living beings that deserve to be loved and apart of the family.

    • mindydopple says:

      It’s normal to be afraid but if you have an idea of the type and breed of dog you’re most suited for, start visiting your local shelter. just to look. You’ll be very surprised how sweet and adorable they all are (most of them anyways). My Betty is a rescue and it sounds corny, but I knew as soon as I met her I knew she was mine. She listens so well, learns quickly and is a weird boxer/chi mix but she’s the best decision ever.

      • Bluebear says:

        I’m fairly certain “afreed” was “agreed”, not “afraid”.

        I thought the same thing initially.

    • aims says:

      Agreed is what I meant. It was early

    Cute pup, more $ than brains.

  3. Dragonlady Sakura says:

    Those poor puppies! Paris isn’t capable of taking care of a piece of toast, let alone a breathing creature that needs food, love and shelter.

    • Alexis says:

      You are just jumping on the band wagon ! She is a business woman ! Can’t take care if a piece of toast ! Her animals are more loved than EVEN your own parents loved YOU ! You Gus are such posers on this thread ! You are super jealous cause you aren’t even close to being cool ! Follow hairy kim

    is it healthy for a pom to be that small? i heard that these so-called designer dogs usually develop illnesses even from a young age. i watch a documentary somewhere that claimed that smallness/cuteness/animal juvenilism is actually acquired through enhancing a genetic fault in the first place. like combining several genetic faults to get a very cute but ultimately very ill puppy.

    • Joy says:

      Even if this puppy is ok, there are likely siblings that were culled from the litter that are missing limbs, eyes, have massive health issues that prevent any quality of life, etc. What this breeder is doing is unethical and horrid. She’s trading size for quality of life. Adopt don’t shop!

      • NewWester says:

        I worked for someone that had one of those “mini poms” and it basically had health problems from the day she brought the dog home. My aunt had a “mini Yorkie” which was fairly healthy but it had to be put down when it fell off the sofa and broke its back.
        In both cases the owners really cared and loved the dogs. Paris only looks at the dogs as accessories, which can be given away or in Paris’s case put in a closet and forgotten about

      • littlestar says:

        Omg that just makes me feel sick! What’s wrong with these breeders??? Is $$$ really more important than a healthy animal? :'(

      • Joy says:

        For these people yes the $$$ is way more important than the animals being healthy. I have a rescued Chihuahua mix that was an accidental cross between two puppy mill dogs. He has irritable bowls and allergies and I’m lucky that’s all he has wrong with him. The people who had didn’t want him because he wasn’t worth any $ and were going to turn him out for the hawks to eat and “let nature take it’s course.” Instead I took him and he’s currently being babied at doggy daycare in a new sweater he got for Christmas 🙂

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Joy, I have never heard of that before! That is so awful. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

      • Hickup the second says:

        @ NewWester

        I find it somewhat questionable to buy a dog that might break its neck when falling off a sofa and then not put it in a cage !! ??? I just think that owners should take care of animals in so far so that the pets don’t have ordinary but dangerous-for-a-mini-dog household accidents like falling off a sofa. I just don’t get it. I would go so far as to say that any dog that breaks its spine due to its miniature size when falling off an ordinary sofa should not be kept as a pet roaming through the house ??? Or am I wrong here?

    • Bridget says:

      Considering that reputable breeders don’t sell dogs to be given as gifts, I’m already skeptical about this breeder… let alone the fact that they sold multiple dogs to Paris Hilton, who has so many black marks against her as an animal owner. Remember all the stories about how she’d forget about her dogs and leave them locked in closets for days?

      • Tiffany :) says:

        It really upsets me the way she repeatedly uses animals as accessories. Whenever I hear that she bought a new pet, it makes me very sad. I fear for them.

    • Kitten says:

      +1,000 Joy
      Personally, I would never buy a “teacup” anything.

      • Joy says:

        And teacup isn’t even a real thing! It’s just a marketing word shady breeders use. Drives me insane.

    • TreadStyle says:

      Deb you are 100% right. They are not meant to be that small so their organs don’t function right. It’s pitiful.

    • Amanda says:

      Yes. Irresponsible breeders will mate the two smallest dogs they have, even if it means inbreeding and/or genetic disease. These little dogs are almost certainly inbred to get a consistent tiny size. It’s disgusting.

    • Anony says:

      It’s not just small dogs though…ALMOST ALL BREEDERS ARE RUINING DOGS!!!! Almost all breeders use inbreeding because they don’t share genetic material with other breeders. So even if it’s not direct siblings you are at least getting Uncle-Neice or cousins (if you’re lucky). All the “pure-bred” dogs have a long list of health issues. Dogs actually have LESS possible genetic illnesses than humans, but their prevalance is thousands of times higher! Everyone knows a dog that has had hip dysplasia or other genetic diseases. Breeders are destroying dogs. THey should only be selecting based on health and longevity but let’s be real…breeders breed to ‘breed standard’ which is ONLY about appearance. Trying to get the perfect length snout or whatever weird arbitrary standard. Dogs are so inbred that if someone took a genetic sample from a pooch from today (even a mutt) they would have the genetic profile more equivalent to a highly endangered species due to the shrinkage of the genome as inbreeding causes the loss of genes/genetic variation over time.

      Don’t fool yourself with the ‘reputable breeder’ label. All it means is that they take care of their animals and breed to breed standard. Which again, means they are going for looks above all else and are slowly ruining dogs.

    • Valois says:

      It will probably have problems with it’s heart, breathing, it’s teeth and extreme temperatures. If not more.

    Iirc, years ago, Paris lost one of her little dogs, put up fliers, and it turned out that she had simply left it at her grandparent’s house. I don’t know if this story is true or not, but that’s what I remember reading.

    Her aunt, Francesca Hilton died after basically being homeless and living in her car and begging for food. I’m not saying that Paris is responsible for her aunt, but that Hilton family has skewered values on how they spend their money. $25k on two dogs? Of course, it’s their money, but still….

    • Pamela says:

      “but that Hilton family has skewered values on how they spend their money. $25k on two dogs? Of course, it’s their money, but still…. ”

      I had a similar thought. It is their money and they certainly can do as they wish with it.

      BUT…that doesn’t stop me from thinking of how much good that 40k would do at a homel;ess shelter, for example. It’s gross.

  6. kri says:

    Vapid, vain, and so damn dumb. All that money, and no brains or class. I hope those dogs have kind caregiver.

  7. db says:

    Can the poor things even walk on their own?

    • Amanda says:

      No idea, but I’m pretty sure they can’t jump or climb up stairs or do any normal dog things.

      • db says:

        That’s so sad! And even sadder is that her willingness to fork over thousands of dollars will only encourage people to breed more of these poor animals.

  8. Miss Jupitero says:

    So Paris Hilton spent 25k on dogs.

    Wanna know what other Hilton is in the news right now?

    Francesca Hilton, daughter of Conrad Hilton and Zsa Zsa Gabor, who died homeless and begging for money to buy food this week.

    I question the values of this family. How do you live in this ridiculous fashion when members of your own family are left out to rot? How do any of these people live with themselves?

  9. Thaisajs says:

    How old is Paris Hilton, now? Mid-30s? At what point to the gossip mags starting writing “Paris is a sad, childless crone” stories like they do with Jennifer Aniston? Seems like it’s about time.

    • Birdix says:

      And wasn’t she going to change her life, contribute to humanity etc after she left prison?

  10. scout says:

    Hope she keeps them as long as they live. Pets she shows off publicly for a while seems to disappear to make space for new ones!

  11. teehee says:

    I want a teacup piggy— not because theyre small, but because they dont grow into a one ton normal pig, and pigs are wonderful animals. I would love it enough to spend maybe 3, 5 thousand….. but 25 is just not practical because I have yknow, retirement and what not. If I had the money, would i think twice to buy an animal I would love, for that kind of money? Probably not….. can’t hate on an animal lover…

    • lamamu says:

      A collection of tiny, fluffy dogs isn’t about animal love. Those animals are about status, privilege, and entitlement. Of course, if the dogs are well-tended, it makes no difference to them what Hilton’s f*ucked up motivations are.

  12. PS says:

    at least it’s not children

  13. Tiffany says:

    She is looking more and more like her mother by the day.

  14. Kaka says:

    You realize that Sarah Palin isn’t that creative when it comes to naming her dogs. Jill Hadassah comes from “Jill” Joe Biden’s wife’s name and “Hadassah ” is Joe Leiberman’s wife’s name.

  15. lucy2 says:

    I’m disgusted by this, but that’s my normal reaction to her anyway.
    She is constantly buying these animals as accessories, contributing to the horrible side of the breeding business, and according to more than a few sources, does not treat them well at all. I wish there was a way to prevent awful people like her from owning pets.

    • MinnFinn says:

      Rescues do prevent nasty people from adopting one of their pets as many of them screen potential adopters very rigorously. So Paris would likely not be able to adopt from a rescue. But how sad is it that her wealth gives her a pass to exploit vulnerable creatures anyway.

  16. Hickup the second says:

    If Paris wants a small cuddly pet then maybe she should try a mouse or a rat? Rats make excellent pets and adapt to humans very well – much better than rabbits or guinea pigs or hamsters. Apparently rats can learn to LIKE to be picked up and be caressed. Whereas rabbits and guinea pigs and hamsters apparently suffer a lot of stress from being picked up as they think it is a predator catching them to eat them. It is just the image of rats that makes people shy away from them.

    And Paris should consider this: if she took a rat as a pet then people would start paying attention to her as it is so unusual for such an upper-class girl to own a rat pet.

  17. maeliz says:

    It must be nice to have money like that. How many dogs does she have? She doesn’t need anymore. There were always pictures of a dog in her purse like an accessory. This tiny dog would fit in my sunglasses case

  18. Meghan says:

    For the Pomeranians’ sake, I hope they stay as little as they are “supposed” to be or what she “paid” for. My Pom was supposed to be a teacup and weigh less than 5 pounds fully grown but she most definitely is not, she is definitely a toy Pom (and a bit rounder than she is supposed to be). I would hate to think Paris Hilton would give the dogs away or something if they turn out to be bigger than she is anticipating. For the first 6 months of Auburn’s life, I had to constantly monitor her to make sure she wasn’t trying to jump off furniture because she could very easily break her legs that way, I imagine that these super tiny Poms will have to be closely monitored their entire lives.

    (Also, yes I bought my Pom from a breeder, don’t hate. My beloved rescue dog had been hit by a car and all my life I have wanted a female red Pomeranian to name Auburn. I will also admit that I was EXCITED to dress up my “teacup” Pom and carry her in my purse and things like that, and she refuses to be dressed up and doesn’t travel well in cars. I guess she showed me, huh?)

  19. Kathryn says:

    Paris Hilton may be vapid, or have no real talent, or whatever reason people use to hate her, but the real reason I can’t stand her is this. She buys animals as props and tosses them in her house and as soon as they get big, she is done with them. Dogs need love and long walks and all of these things she doesn’t care about providing because she is so selfish. Beyond that, there are millions of dogs euthanized each year (many of them purebred) in shelters and pounds who have been abandoned for one reason or another. I really have a problem with people who buy dogs from pet shops or “micro teacup” dogs because they keep puppy mills in business where dogs live their entire lives in cages, have no teeth or jaw many times due to them rotting from horrible quality food, and sometimes have no eyes and have never been bathed or had their fur cut. This is quite frankly, disgusting, and this is what bothers me about Paris more than anything. Her vapidity really only harms herself, but buying these kind of dogs goes WAY beyond her.

    And that could have saved about 50,000 rescue dogs.
