Kendall Jenner Dogs – Names, Breeds, All The Facts

Kendall Jenner is the proud owner of two dogs, a greyhound named Mew and a Doberman Pinscher named Pyro. The Kardashian-Jenner family reinvented the wheel with regard to reality television shows when they came up with the famous Keeping up with the Kardashians. The reality TV show launched the family into the spotlight as the members, including Kim, Khloe, Kylie, and Kendall amongst others used the platform to showcase the lifestyle of their ultra-rich family.

Over time, the world has come to know a lot of things about the Kardashian-Jenner family, including their unique sense of fashion, commitment to family, and undeniable love for pets. However, while the Kardashian-Jenners have played host to a number of different breeds of pets like snakes, there is no doubt that they have a particular fondness for the canine kind. Between them, Kendall Jenner and her sisters have more than a dozen dogs and they have made no secret about how much they love these animals.

What breed is Kendall Jenner’s dog?

As previously mentioned, the beautiful model and reality TV star owns two dogs, both of which come from different breeds. Her first dog is reportedly a greyhound. Historically, greyhounds started off as hunting dogs primarily used by the British elite to hunt deers and other animals like hares and foxes. They were used for hunting mainly because of their incredible speed, which is recorded to be up to 45 miles an hour. Except for the cheetah, the greyhound breed is the fastest land animal, wild or domestic, in the world.

Over time though, greyhounds have evolved into very good pets recognized for their very affectionate nature and love for children. They also do best in serene environments and are generally friendly to strangers. In a general sense, greyhounds are adaptable, sensitive, easy to groom, easy to train, have high energy levels and a high potential for playfulness and these features clearly reveal why Kendall would go for one as a pet.

Kendall Jenner also has a Doberman Pinscher in her canine family. The only noticeable difference between a Doberman Pinscher and the greyhound breed is their physical characteristics, for where the greyhound is characteristically lean and fast, the Doberman is more muscular but also fast, though not as fast as a greyhound. The Doberman Pinscher originated in Germany and was used primarily as a war dog or for law enforcement.

They are the breeds you would usually find at the airport or on a military base. They are known for their bravery, courage, and intelligence but like the greyhound, they can also make good pets as they are very people-oriented, child friendly and if properly trained and socialized can bond with people in general.

What are the names of Kendall Jenner’s dogs?

Kendall named her first dog, the white Italian greyhound, Mew after the Pokemon character and she named the second one, the Doberman Pinscher, Pyro.



Well-documented records show that Mew was a gift from Kendall’s sister Kylie on Christmas Day 2017. It is also a well-known fact that the pup gifted to Kendall is the offspring of Kylie’s dogs, Norman and Bambi. These records do not however reveal the exact date of Mew’s birth. Close family sources made it known that Kendall almost refused the gift as a result of her very busy schedule, after all, she had found it quite a challenge to take care of her former canine pet at the time, a Great Dane puppy named Blue due to the same constraints.

Fortunately and to Kendall’s delight, her sister Kylie agreed to take responsibility for the pup’s care whenever Kendall was out of town. Beyond the early days of Mew’s existence in the Kardashian-Jenner household, not much is known about him as he doesn’t feature nearly as much as Kendall’s other canine pet on the model’s social media platforms.


Kendall Jenner introduced her Dobberman Pinscher, Pyro, to the world in 2018. Pyro was reportedly another gift from an as yet unidentified source that arrived on her birthday. While it is a universally accepted fact that parents, of kids or pets, shouldn’t play favorites, it would appear that Kendall has absolutely done away with any such contraptions and every indication and all her mannerisms clearly show that Pyro is her favorite canine pet. The business mogul and model utilizes every opportunity to show off her cute Doberman to the world.

Such is the adoration that Kendall has for Pyro that she once remarked that she was raising a model. When asked to clarify her statements about raising a model, she made it clear that her comments were directed at her cute Pyro, who she had nothing but sweet things to say about. She was also quite disappointed by the fact that her sister Kylie’s ex-boyfriend and musician, Travis Scott, never considered Pyro worthy of gracing his new music video, a statement to which the singer replied by stating that he would make sure Pyro was on the album cover.

What happened to Kendall’s dog, Bella?

Bella, a white Maltese pooch, went to live with Pastor Brad Johnson. Prior to that, he was primarily Kendall’s pet. The reason why she now lives with Pastor Brad is currently unknown, although it would not be a surprise if it is eventually revealed that it has something to do with Kendall’s hectic career schedule.

All things considered, moving away from the Kardashian-Jenner clan would still be considered a better fate for Bella, far better than the experience of Dolce and Gabbana, Khloe Kardashian’s two dogs. Gabbana reportedly died in 2018 as a result of as yet unknown causes while Dolce’s demise was descriptively more violent as he was killed by a coyote.

Controversy over Kendall Jenner’s dog leash

In 2020, Kendall Jenner came under intense media scrutiny and backlash for what many people considered maltreatment of her pet dog Pyro. The public’s fury was ignited when Jenner was spotted on a stroll with Pyro and a prong collar around his neck. The prong collar is illegal in Australia and has long been the subject of numerous petitions aimed at following Australia’s lead and making the leash illegal in America.

Kendall’s use of the prong collar, which is essentially used to train errant dogs and restrain/regulate their movements, effectively divided public opinion with some literally calling her a dog sadist along with other unsavory comments which also claim that she was causing pain to the dog in order to get a cool picture for her Instagram page. Others defended her decision to use the collar while claiming that it was the best way to train dogs despite the well-acknowledged fact that prong collars cause pain and discomfort to dogs whenever they strain against them.
