With company cultures that celebrate—and even encourage—employees bringing their dogs to work, it’s no wonder that many of tech’s biggest players are also parents to the cutest creatures known to man.
From Google to Salesforce, dogs have taken over the hearts and Instagrams of the industry’s most powerful leaders. Sure these people are setting the agenda for global business and politics, but even billionaires need a little TLC (tender loving cuddles).
And did we mention these dogs are darn cute? Here’s a round up of some of the tech industry’s most powerful dogs.
This is Beast, Mark Zuckerberg’s excessively woolly Puli
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan adopted Beast in 2010. Their daughter Max, who was born in 2015, has grown quite attached to the pup.
This is Teddy, step-dog to Evan Spiegel, the co-founder of Snapchat.
When Spiegel married model Miranda Kerr, he became stepdad to her son — and to her cuddly pup, Teddy. Spiegel is rarely seen in public with the dog, but it’s rumored that Teddy made an appearance in Spiegel’s L’Uomo Vogue photo shoot. You be the judge.
If you follow Lyft’s former chief marketing officer on Instagram, then you know her dog well
Kira Wampler, the CEO of Art.com and former CMO of Lyft, keeps her followers up-to-date on her dog’s hilarious sleeping positions. You can’t say Wampler doesn’t know art when she sees it.
