What's more heart-melting than Ryan Gosling shirtless on the big screen? How about Ryan Gosling next to his four-legged best friend, George? Or Jon Hamm on a walk with his dog, Cora? Or David Beckham squeezing Scarlett the French Bulldog in his arms? These talented men set aside plenty of time for the furry loves of their lives, i.e. their canine kids. This Father's Day, we're praising the hottest dog dads in Hollywood.
Canine Kid: George
Why He's an Awesome Dog Dad: As if you needed another reason to find Ryan Gosling adorable, this hot actor loves his pooch George so much that they're seen everywhere together. From hikes to airports, George is Gosling's most loyal companion. Gosling even shares the limelight with him. He brought George along when he made an appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."
Canine Kid: Bronx
Why He’s an Awesome Dog Dad: The New York Jets quarterback loves his Rhodesian Ridgeback as much as he loves football. But when Tebow left Denver to play for the Jets, he knew the dog, Bronco, needed a new name. He is now known as Bronx. We wonder if Tebow's dog knows how to kneel like his dad.
Canine Kid: Cora
Why He's an Awesome Dog Dad: The "Mad Men" star loves his German Shepherd mix Cora so much that earlier this year, he even guest starred alongside Hamm and his girlfriend Jennifer Westfeld in the PBS Kids animated series, "Martha Speaks." The dad-and-dog duo can often be spotted on walks around Hamm's Los Feliz home. We wonder if Cora's a Don Draper fan.
Canine Kid: Coco and Scarlett
Why He's an Awesome Dog Dad: David Beckham's already adorable family could not be complete without their Bulldog, Coco, and French Bulldog, Scarlett. Beckham was so excited when they first welcomed Scarlett into the family that he even asked wife Victoria to tweet about it. "David loves little Scarlet!!!!she is so cute!" she said.
Canine Kid: Puppy
Why He’s an Awesome Dog Dad: Every hot Hollywood actor needs a cute pooch to keep him company, so when Zac Efron finally made the jump and became a proud dog owner, we were thrilled. Efron was so excited when he finally got Puppy, an adorable Australian Shepherd. He even let Puppy open presents with him on Christmas morning and then tweeted photo proof to his fans.
Canine Kids: Buckley, Brennan and Billy
Why He's an Awesome Dog Dad: Jessica Biel isn’t Justin Timberlake’s only love. He treasures his role as dad to two Boxers named Buckley and Brennan, and Pit Bull/Lab mix Billy. The pop-star-turned-actor loves taking his dogs for walks to make sure they’re in just as fit as he is. Or is it the other way around?
Canine Kid: Lupo
Why He's an Awesome Dog Dad: While the world was expecting Will and Kate to announce that they were expecting their first child, the royal couple surprised us instead with Lupo, a black Cocker Spaniel. This pooch is truly fit for royalty, joining Prince William during his polo matches.
Canine Kid: Pacman
Why He’s an Awesome Dog Dad: Manny Pacquiao may be the world’s best fighter, but when it comes to his Jack Russell Terrier, Pacman, the boxing champion is just a lover. You'll rarely find Manny without Pacman. They are seen everywhere together, from morning workouts to bouts in Vegas.
Canine Kid: Hemingway and Rigby
Why He's an Awesome Dog Dad: Pete Wentz treats his dogs as if they were his own kids. He had Hemingway serve as ring-bearer in his wedding to Ashlee Simpson, and even had his 29th-birthday cake replicate the English Bulldog. In 2008, Wentz gave Hemingway a brother, Rigby. "I’m a really weird person that doesn’t like talking to other people, but I really like talking to the dog," Wentz once said.
Canine Kid: Kola
Why He's an Awesome Dog Dad: An advocate for pet adoption, "Twilight" star Kellan Lutz serves as a spokesperson for PETA’s "Adopt, Don’t Buy" campaign. As a result, Lutz rescued his very own dog and named her Kola. Lutz and Kola had to spend some time away from each other while he filmed "Breaking Dawn." Lutz told reporters, "Honestly, it was a long seven months that got longer and longer. That’s a long time being away from my home, my friends and my dogs."
Canine Kid: Pierre
Why He’s an Awesome Dog Dad: When tennis superstar Novak Djokovic found out his dog Pierre couldn't accompany him to Wimbledon, he was heartbroken. The two are pretty much inseparable. He gave Pierre his very own Twitter page and even shared the cover of Men’s Vogue with him.
Canine Kid: Foxy
Why He’s an Awesome Dog Dad: Matthew McConaughey is pretty sexy, but when it comes to being "Foxy," his Australian Cattle Dog takes the cake. McConaughey and his precious pooch maintain their rockin' physiques together by going for frequent runs on the beach.
Canine Kid: Noah
Why He’s an Awesome Dog Dad: With a little help from "Glee" co-star Lea Michele, Mark Salling named his awesome Australian Cattle Dog Noah. Salling can't bear to be apart from his canine companion, so he brings Noah to set with him and often tweets photos of them snuggling together.
Canine Kid: Bo Obama
Why He’s an Awesome Dog Dad: We all know President Obama is arguably the busiest man in the world, but he sure loves and trusts First Dog Bo Obama. This lucky pup has been seen doing his fair share of work around the White House while the president's away. By "work," we of course mean taking naps in the Oval Office and posting pics of himself on the White House's official website.

Canine Kid: All Dogs
Why He’s an Awesome Dog Dad: Whether it’s babysitting his mom’s dog, Honey, or playing with "Entourage" Rottweiler Arnold, Adrian Grenier has built his own circle of canine compadres. We've seen countless photos of the Gernier with different dogs all over the country. Now that "Entourage" is over, perhaps Grenier should consider opening his own dog-walking service.
