We recently spotted Twilight’s Ashley Greene out on the town with her new puppy Marlo, toting a super-cute carrier from House of Dog. The tan faux-ostrich bag – made completely cruelty-free – is adorned with 627 hand-set crystals in the shape of a paw and is perfect for holding small pups, like Greene’s toy fox terrier. With a price tag of $320, though, it may be a bit much for more frugal pet owners.
Here’s another option that’s a little easier on the budget: Pet Paw Purses’s adorable paw-print carrier is covered in colorful footprints and available in black or white. With a zipper compartment, room for a 15-lb. pooch and a $49.95 price tag, it’s a great alternative to the more expensive option – with the same amount of charm!
