Priyanka Chopra and husband Nick Jonas are parents to not one, but three pet dogs. In a recent interview, the actress spoke at length about Diana, Panda, and Gino, and the bond she shares with them. Speaking to Financial Times, Priyanka revealed that she is particularly close to Diana.
“Diana was the first pup that I fully took care of. She's from North Shore Rescue in New York, and she chose me. It was four years ago, at a time in my life where I was really low. I had just moved to the States, I was mourning my father's death, I didn't know anybody. I was working on 'Quantico' for ABC and going back home on my own.”
She added, “Diana had been rescued from the streets of Atlanta. She's a chihuahua-terrier mix, I think, but we're not completely sure. I had no idea what to do with a pup, but it was she and I, alone in New York City. It was Diana I snuggled into and Diana who barked whenever the door opened. With Diana, I had somebody to take care of, and in return, she took care of me.”
Talking about her other pets, Panda – a Husky crossed with an Australian shepherd, and Gino – a German shepherd. Revealing the reason why she got her third pet, she said Nick is diabetic and German shepherds are particularly good at smelling low blood sugar levels. On the work front, the actress is currently in London shooting for her new show 'Citadel'.
