Along with its passengers and crew, it is reported that twelve dogs were also onboard the Titanic for Her unforgettable maiden voyage. The twelve canines were brought onboard by ten of Titanic's First Class passengers and their families, including John Jacob Astor.

Only three of the twelve boarded Titanic at Southampton with the rest boarding at Titanic's first stop, Cherbourg. Some of the dog breeds included French bulldog, Pekinese, Chow, Pomeranian, Airedale, and Great Dane, with some breeds unknown.

Titanic was very dog-friendly, with excellent kennel facilities by all accounts for the canines onboard. It has been reported that there was even supposed to be a dog show on Titanic on April 15th.

Out of the twelve dogs onboard only three survived Titanic's tragic sinking, a Pekinese and two Pomeranians. The Pomeranians were brought onto lifeboats by their mistresses, Margaret Hays and Mrs. Elizabeth Barrett Rothschild. A Pekinese named Sun Yat Sen was saved by his master, Henry S. Harper, in Lifeboat 3.
