Justin Bieber: Forget About Selena - He Likes to Cuddle Sam!


Justin Bieber

Oodles of people are speculating on whether Justin Bieber is indeed dating Selena Gomez. Are they seeing each other? Did they hold hands? Or are they just two young super stars comparing notes on their crazy lives.  But Justin hasn’t been seen cuddling Selena in public (yet), but who has he been seen getting really close with?

Sam! His beloved Papillion pup. He rescued Sam from a shelter last year. “We moved to a city where we didn’t really know anybody, so I kinda wanted a friend around. And Sam was kinda like that friend,” he said.

And he really believes in rescuing dogs in need, Justin has become a spokesperson for PETA.” It’s really important that people adopt,” Bieber tells peta2 as part of PETA’s Adopt, Don’t Buy campaign. “I really encourage going out to an animal shelter or a place where you can get a dog that has been abandoned or doesn’t have a home.”

Justin Bieber’s home has always been dog friendly. “My dad and I used to go and hang out [at shelters] … just go and visit the different animals and stuff,” he said. “A lot of animals are getting abused in different homes, and in different situations. I think it’s really important that we just stay aware about these situations.”

I wonder is Selena Gomez is a dog lover too!
