We’ve already written a lot about the richest and the most successful people from the business world. They’re mostly incredibly intelligent, smart, and creative. We know how much they’re worth and what brings them the highest income. Besides the enormous wealth, they’re people like us, and, just like us, they love fluffy puppies, purring cats, and sometimes even exotic animals. Check out the list below and let us introduce you the favorite pets of the richest people on the planet.
Bill Gates And Nearly 8 Billion Worth Dogs
According to the Forbes’ annual ranking of the world’s wealthiest billionaires, Bill Gates is the richest person in the world. Besides all that Bill Gates seems to be more into dogs than any other animals. He’s the owner of two adorable dogs, Oreo and Nilla. The billionaire admits that he doesn’t spend much time with his pets, but he really loves them – especially when they’re not barking at night and not eating things they’re not supposed to. Gates’ dogs seem to be really precious pets – it is estimated that Nilla and Oreo are worth around 4 billion dollars each!
Kevin Rose And The Most Famous Dog on Youtube
Rose is a successful Internet entrepreneur who co-founded Revision3, Digg, Pownce, and Milk. Rose is also the Google Ventures partner and the owner of Toaster – a cute and fluffy dog. Kevin’s dog has a lot of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram fans from all over the world. Over four years ago, Toaster was attacked by a raccoon, and, thanks to his owner, he got away unharmed. The video of the dog/human/raccoon battle spread out the world and went viral.
Mike Krieger And His Beloved Juno
He’s a Brazilian entrepreneur and the co-founder of Instagram. Krieger is also a happy owner of a Bernese mountain dog called Juno. As befits the dog whose owner is a guy running the Instagram, Juno has his own account (with almost 8 thousand followers)! Not bad for a dog.
Mark Zuckerberg And His Unique Dog
Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest person among the first ten people in the Forbes’ ranking. Facebook founder is one of the most popular and recognizable people in the world, and so is his dog. Beast – that’s his name – is a Hungarian sheepdog with 1.9 million Facebook fans. Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla adopted him in 2010 when he was an adorable flurry puppy. Things have changed a little bit since then, and the dog’s haircut turned into the one of its kind.
Kevin Systrom And The Important Family Member
Instagram co-founder and CEO Kevin Systrom has a golden retriever called Dolly. This adorable dog has more than 19 thousand followers on Instagram. Dolly seems to be a very important member of the Systrom family. She played a significant role during Kevin’s proposal to his wife, Nicole, who said that that night, her future husband tricked her into thinking that their puppy had run away, so she run out of the house in the apron and right after that Systrom proposed to her. Now it seems that all of them are a lucky family.
Richard Branson And His Pet Survivor
English business magnate, philanthropist, and the owner of Virgin Group seems to be a huge animals fan – he keeps all kinds of them as pets on his private Caribbean escape, Necker Island. A few years ago, the Branson’s estate burnt down totally. Luckily, no one was harmed, and when Sir Richard Branson came up to the ruins of the house, he found out that his precious tortoise was looking very well and healthy. Turtles are said to live more than a century. We wish the Branson’s fire survivor best health and general well-being for more than a hundred years!
David Karp And His Funny Friend Clark
Karp is a web developer and entrepreneur, and the founder and CEO of Tumblr. He’s also the owner of an incredibly cute French-English bulldog mix named Clark. The dog is famous on the Internet, thanks to all of the funny photos and GIFs Karp posts at his personal Tumblr account.
Elon Musk And The Black And White Marvin
He’s a business magnate, investor, engineer, inventor, and probably one of the most brilliant tech geeks in history. We’ve written about him for many many times, describing his brilliant ideas, and lately some titbits from his youth. Now, we’re wondering whether someone like him can find the time for having a pet. It turns out that besides the fact that Elon Musk runs SpaceX, Tesla, and many more projects, he finds some time to care for his black and white dog, Marvin.
Jon Oringer And The Purring Pixel
Oringer is an American programmer, photographer, and businessman best known as the founder and CEO of Shutterstock, a stock media, and editing tools provider, headquartered in the New York City. He’s also the only one on our list who seems to be a cat lover. Oringer is the owner of Pixel – picture of whom was one of the first photos uploaded to Shutterstock when its founder created the site fourteen years ago.
Most often, we hear and read about the people mentioned above regarding various rankings about who is the richest and who lost their last year position. It makes us think of them as the richest people, almost gods, entirely different from us. The truth is that they’re really similar when it comes to the love to pets.
