Introducing you to Pinkie Pie — one of the models for our newest collection, American Beagle Outfitters. We asked her owner, Sarah, a few questions about Pinkie Pie so we could learn more about this teeny-tiny sweetie starring in our campaign.
Pinkie Pie and her mama, Sarah
Tricks for Treats?
Will sit, lay down, roll over (multiple times in a row), give paw and hi-five for beef dog treats
Why did you think your dog would be a good model for our newest line?
She’s itty bitty and everyone she meets seems to fall in love with her instantly. She’s super friendly and loves being around other people. She’s also used to being dressed up – she has tons of clothes and occasionally even wears nail paw-lish.

What are your dog’s favorite places to hang out? Anywhere I am or where there is a pillow or blanket for her to cuddle up to. She’s the best cuddler ever!
Does your dog have any shameful secrets?
She’s sneaky!!! If you take your eyes off of her for a SECOND she’ll do bad things – unwrap presents under the tree, tear up the garbage, eat thru a box of k-cups, eat half a bag of chocolate covered coffee beans! She can’t help herself when she smells food.
What’s your dog’s most embarrassing moments?
Sometimes, I put boots on her and she hates them. She will freeze. Not even a treat can get her to move.
What is your dog’s favorite outfit to wear?
She’s a sweater girl. She likes to be cozy – especially if it’s pink!
Would you recommend American Beagle Outfitters to other dogs?
OF COURSE. She’s so excited to be in the campaign with her friends Carson and Lottie Moon. They’re telling everyone they know.
Is your dog single or attached?
She’s a single lady.
Ride in the car vs. Walk in the park?
Car all the way! She loves going for long drives to visit her cousins in West Virginia. When we get close to their house she can tell and gets super excited!
Rope vs. Fetch?
Canine Carryout Beef Treats. Or any cat food she can sneak from her sister or people food she can weasel out of her mama.
What’s your best memory with your dog?
There are so many. She’s been around for all the big things – she went to college with me; she traveled to NY with me while I was recording an album, she traveled to Portland with me for an American Eagle Outfitters photo shoot and she was there when I met the guy I’ll marry this summer (she pooped in his shoe the first time she met him. She had to show him who was boss!!)
Why did you pick this specific dog?
She was so tiny and adorable and I couldn’t resist her big shiny eyes. She weighed one pound and fit in my hand when I first got her.
Is the dog an only child?
She has a sister named Coco who is a cat and they’re best friends. They cuddle together in bed (next to me of course).
Does your dog bite or lick the mailman?
Nappers vs Players?
Naps, all day, every day!
What words does she know?
Sit, Laydown, Roll, Gimme Paw, Hi Five, Food, Treat, Go Outside, Go for Ride, Get up in Bed, Cagey, Under (what I say when I want her to get under the covers and cuddle up, Potty.
Does she prefer mud or baths?
Baths – she’s a girly girl.
Describe your dog’s personality in 5 words-
Chill, Sweet, Cuddly, Protective, Alpha
Who are your dog’s best friends? Any neighborhood animals?
She likes hanging out with Lottie Moon and Carson when they can fit it in their schedules. Emma and Murphy are her cousins she loves.
Where does your dog sleep?
Right next to me… as close as she can possibly get.
What’s your sleeping style? Don’t disturb the dog, or don’t disturb me?
I’ll be uncomfortable if it helps her stay cozy. Sometimes though if I roll over and move the blankets, she tends to go flying across the bed. She’s so small.
Is there anything your dog won’t do?
She’ll do it but she doesn’t like swimming. She also hates the vacuum and hides every time.
Does your dog have any favorite TV shows?
She watches a lot of Food Network with her mama; anything involving food is fine by her.
What makes your dog bark?
If she hears a noise while I’m home, she barks to protect me. If it’s vice versa and she’s home with AJ and I’m the one that makes the noise, she doesn’t even bother trying to protect him. She loves me most.
What is the funniest thing that your dog does?
Her tongue sticks out when she’s super relaxed. It’s cute but ugly at the same time. I love it.
How would you describe your personal style?
Usually casual. I’m most always in denim and a tee or tank with flip flops (at least in the Spring and Summer since the weather here is nuts).
What is your dog’s #AEOStyle?
A little flashier than her mama’s – she loves dresses, embellished sweaters and anything sparkly. Bonus points if it’s pink.
What do you think of your dog’s outfit?
If I could’ve chosen an outfit for her myself that would’ve been the one. I love how trendy the jumper is – both the fit and the black and white print. And I love that this is something different for her versus her usual T or sweatshirt.
When you heard American Eagle Outfitters was coming up with a clothing line, what were your first thoughts?
It’s such a fun idea. I love that I can shop for myself and come home with a present for her too.
Where would your dog wear American Beagle Outfitters?
Everywhere. Especially to the park or parties so she can show off her new style to her friends.
What would be the perfect look for you to match your dog?
I’d love to see us both in destroyed T’s, jeans and sunglasses. That’s our favorite go-to look.
