Meet the country crooner's No. 1 fan! And we're assuming expectant wife Lacey Buchanan admires bulldog Vern (who shares Owen's affection with fellow English bulldog Merle). "You've got to like my dog if you're going to be with me," he told PEOPLE in 2010.

Talk about giving ladies the princess treatment. But the family man (and Dancing With the Stars all-star) says his French bulldog Mila isn't always so ladylike. "She's a little monster," he told PEOPLE in 2010. "She never stops moving because she's a little ball of fire."

Sometimes, love happens when you least expect it (and we're not talking about wife Blake Lively). After rescuing Baxter in 2009, PEOPLE's 2010 Sexiest Man Alive said he fell hard for his mixed-breed canine companion. "I didn't mean to," Reynolds told PEOPLE in 2010. "I just picked him up along the way."

Just the essentials for the most-junior Jonas: his guitar – and his dog. A 16th-birthday gift from his family in 2008, Elvis the golden retriever had Jonas gushing. "He is really a joyful spirit and always good to have around."

They go together like spaghetti and meatballs, which is no surprise, given the two-time Sexiest Man Alive honoree's tasty tactic to win over Einstein, his cocker spaniel mix rescue dog. "Forever, now, he just thinks of me as the guy with the meatball feet," Clooney told Esquire of rubbing food on his shoes. "He loves me. I can do no wrong. He follows me everywhere."

The odds were ever in Driver's favor when the pit bull was rescued by the Hunger Games star earlier this year. Just as attractive as the actor's do-good mantra: He named his canine companion in honor of another eye-pleasing animal lover, Drive's Ryan Gosling. "I always thought it was a good name for a dog," he told New York's Daily News, "so it just kind of worked out."
