Joe Jonas' 12 puppies request

Joe Jonas' 12 puppies request

Joe Jonas requests "12 puppies" on his tour rider.

The 26-year-old singer loves dogs so much he likes to have a cute canine cuddle before he performs so asks for a dozen pooches to be delivered to his dressing room - and some gig venues oblige.

Speaking to Fitzy And Wippa on Australian radio station Nova 96.9, he said: "I've had 12 puppies on the rider for a while.

"Every once in a while, a city will show up with 12 puppies."

The star is currently touring Australia with his DNCE bandmate Cole Whittle and as a result he has put down some popular snacks Down Under on his rider recently.

Joe enjoys indulging in Tim Tams chocolate biscuits, meat pies from iconic Aussie shop Harry's Cafe de Wheels, Fosters lager and some juicy hunks of meat from Outback Steakhouse.

As well as Australian snacks, Joe has also been embracing the local wildlife Down Under.

Earlier today (10.08.16), he appeared to be visiting a koala sanctuary as he shared selfie alongside one of the marsupials, and was lucky to find one awake as the animals tend to sleep from around 16 to 18 hours a day.

What's more, before Joe's show in Nashville seven weeks ago he took a picture alongside Instagram sensation Doug the Pug, a canine with 1.9 million followers on the photo-sharing site.

He wrote: "Chillin with the homie @itsdougthepug before the Nashville show (sic)"
