Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin Just Got the Cutest Dog on the Planet

No exaggeration.

This is not hyperbole, exaggeration, or clickbait. This is simply the honest truth about the world right now: Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin just got a puppy and it’s the cutest puppy in history. It’s a ridiculously cute puppy. It’s an unfathomably cute puppy. This puppy should be illegal. His name is Oscar and he is a demon from the nega-realm sent to Earth to steal hearts and melt souls. He’s amazing.

The pair introduced their new furry friend to the world on Saturday via Instagram Stories, playing with the pup in bed. On Bieber’s Story, little Oscar nibbles on Baldwin’s nose and generally hangs out on Bieber’s tattooed chest as the pop star stares stony-faced into the camera. In a caption, he explained that he wasn’t smiling because he was sick.

Baldwin also flooded her Instagram Stories with video of the dog, introducing him as her “Christmas baby” and admitting, “I know it’s overload but c’mon!” Don’t worry, keep this puppy coming.

This is the first shared pet for the newlyweds. They were first linked in late 2015 but then split and, much to the chagrin of Jelena 4 Ever shippers, got back together in May. The Biebers got engaged this past July and had legally tied the knot by Thanksgiving. Apparently going to church together multiple times per week really does bring people closer!

Bieber referred to the dog as the couple’s “dogson” in an Instagram post, writing, “Meet our dogson his name is #Oscar.” In about half a day, the picture has already been Liked over five million times, proving that Oscar has star quality. World, meet Oscar Bieber.

A Complete Visual History of Justin Bieber’s Hair

And I was like baby, baby, baby, oh…

Aside from minor changes in its swoop, Bieber stayed notably consistent with his look between 2008 and 2010.

For his appearance at the 2011 Video Music Awards, Bieber offered a long-awaited glimpse at his forehead, and accessorized with glasses and Selena Gomez.

A sneak peek at Bieber’s future scruffiness.

By 2012, Bieber seemed to have learned how to maintain his original locks: by simply slicking them back into a bouffant.

Getty Images

The kickoff of Bieber’s Believe tour in South Africa brought his bouffant to the international level.

Getty Images

Bieber’s cheery mug shot, taken shortly after he was charged with drunk driving, resisting arrest, and driving without a valid license, featured a magnificent bouffant—perhaps because he’d just spent the night racing.

Fully embracing his roast on Comedy Central, Bieber matched his hair to his monkey’s. (To be clear, this is not OG Mally, Bieber’s pet monkey, who was infamously confiscated by the German authorities, and who is still a resident of a German zoo—and still having trouble communicating with other monkeys.)

Posing with Nash Grier, Bieber later captioned this image simply “#Ponytails.”

Behold: a bleached-blond Bieber.

By the next month, though, he was back to his dirty-blond bouffant.

Who knows what’s hiding under this beanie? The possibilities are endless.

Bieber started off the new year with a bang—i.e., a man bun.

Getty Images

By the next month, he’d already moved on to bleached blond, as he showcased at the Saint Laurent show.

Getty Images

Naturally, his Purpose World Tour merited his third transformation in as many months. Lest it get in his way, he slicked it back into a bun on the tour’s opening night in Seattle.

Getty Images

Yes, those are dreadlocks, and yes, Bieber wore them out in public—here at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, though regrettably on other occasions as well.

Getty Images

By the next month, the dreads were fully gone, though that didn’t stop Bieber from making a statement while on his trip to Monaco. It was during this month that he also got a teeny face tattoo.

Getty Images

A little over a year later, Bieber shifted his attention to his facial hair.

Getty Images

The next year, his regrown hair didn’t exactly help him at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.

Getty Images

We’re still waiting with bated breath to find out if or when Bieber will deliver on this promise.

Look at those luscious locks go!

Getty Images

Alas, they weren’t that luscious for that long: Just two days later, reportedly at the behest of Hailey Baldwin, Bieber got a haircut—and a very on-trend one at that.

Getty Images

The evidence of the haircut, though, was already gone by the next month.

Getty Images

While in Michigan that September—a whirlwind month for Bieber’s hair—he returned to the forehead-less days of his youth.

Yes, that bump under his hood is no doubt a bun or a ponytail, pulled up high on his head, Hailey Baldwin–style.

Getty Images

Less than a week later, Bieber took care of the bump, using his Instagram Story to share the news of his buzz cut, which quickly earned him the nickname Buzztin. It also put his tiny face tat of a cross more prominently on display—an act of faith perhaps as prominent as his and Hailey’s commitment to waiting until marriage to have sex.

Save for the presence of Hailey and quite a few more tattoos, you’d be forgiven for thinking this photo dates several years back. In May 2019—yet another banner year of hair changes for Bieber—he threw things back to his original sleek, neatly combed, and naturally colored mop.

Periods of scruff soon followed, but Bieber once again managed to clean things up for his (second) wedding to Hailey in the following months.

It’s no surprise that Bieber kicked off the new year in a pair of Drew House pajamas, but his peroxide pixie was definitely an unexpected touch.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Hailey. Even she (reportedly) “can’t stand” Bieber’s mustache, which unfortunately made a comeback. (Bieber even put it at the center of his “Intentions” art.) Hailey has yet to publicly condemn it, but according to Peoples mysterious source, that might be for the best: “The more people want him to shave it off, the more he wants to keep it. It’s staying for now. It’s making him feel like a rebel and he likes it!” Thankfully, Hailey has previously prevailed in getting him to shave it off.
