Vanessa Hudgens: Shadow Was Actually Stella's!

Vanessa Hudgens: Shadow Was Actually Stella's!

We all love Vanessa Hudgens toy poodle Shadow, but what we didn’t know is that she was actually sister Stella‘s!

The 21-year-old actress told PeoplePets, “She was actually my little sister’s dog, but she didn’t know how to handle a little, tiny, three-pound puppy. Shadow actually adopted me as her mom and kind of abandoned [my sister]. So now she’s my little sweetheart.”

Vanessa also dished that Shadow likes what she likes and you can’t really change her mind. She shared, “I brought her on a hike in Malibu, and I took her down to this little stream to see if she wanted some water. She started walking in the water and literally plopped herself down into mud. I’m like, ‘Shadow, no!’ I picked her up, put her back in the water, and she just went right back over to her little mud pile and sat in it. She’s silly. She has a mind of her own.”

    I want one! And the name Shadow is so clever.

  • Zanessalove

    They look so much alike! It;s so cute. Vanessa has black, Shadow has black hair. Vanessa is petite, Shadow come from a small dog breed. Vanessa is a hyper person, Shadow seems like a Hyper dog. Vanessa has a dark eye color (Brown), and Shadow has a dark eye color (Black). :) There are so cute!

    @duduche29: Seriously, I think you need to go away, or take some anger management classes. There are always posts about celebs and their pets, either walking them, coming out of vet offices, etc. Get over it.
