Kerry Washington's Fabulous Shorkie - Celebrities and Their Pets

Thu, 06 Jun 2019 - Animals & pets

You might know Kerry Washington as the star from the hit TV show Scandal, but do you know about her adorable dog? Josephine Baker, or Josie for short, is a Shorkie (Yorkshire Terrier and Shih-tzu mix). Josie is a hypoallergenic breed and, in fact, mom Kerry Washington almost convinced the Obamas to get one themselves!

You could call Josie a spoiled dog, but she prefers the term "pampered." She gets a deep conditioning treatment once a week, and loves to indulge in #SelfCareSaturday with her mom.




Like other celebrity pets we've covered, Josie has also been in the spotlight. She's appeared in publications like VogueArchitectural DigestPeople, and In Style



The verdict is still out on whether she's going to be America's next top model, but we think she's got a good chance.



Do you have a pampered pooch too?
