An Instagram icon, Marnie the Dog is a ‘paw’parazzi magnet destined to live the 90210 lifestyle! In celebration of National Dog Week, the celebrity recently got the chance to turn that dream from reverie to reality when she checked into her favorite dog-friendly Airbnb home in Beverly Hills.
During her stay in a three-story, eight-bedroom retreat, Marnie made walking the carpeted hallways a red carpet experience, and after lounging on the lawn and topping up her tan by the pool she got the scoop on everything LA from her gracious hosts, Teddy the Dog and Hugo the butler.
A glamorous getaway for a good cause, in honor of 14-year-old Marnie– a Shih Tzu who was adopted from a shelter at age 11– Airbnb has made a donation to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization which has offered a new lease on life to thousands of elderly dogs since its start in 2007.
How You & Your Dog Can Stay in a Pet-Friendly Airbnb
Pet parents who would like to follow in the pawprints of Marnie can check out the more than 600,000 pet-friendly Airbnb accommodations around the world. In Italy alone, close to 110,000 listings on the online marketplace for vacation home rentals say “Benvenuto!” to traveling dogs.
Over 92,000 homes put out the welcome mat for canines and cats in the United States. Families with four-legged friends who plan to visit West Virginia will be happy to know that the state is the most pet-friendly in the Airbnb database, with close to 40 percent of Airbnb’s active listings accommodating pets.
Ocean Spring, Mississippi has earned the distinction of being Airbnb’s most pet-friendly city, with 70 percent of active listings accepting our buddies who bark and pals who purr. Many of Airbnb’s pet-friendly listings are also home to a canine or cat. Nearly 34 percent of pet-friendly homes in Longmont, Colorado have dogs, and in Captain Cook, Hawaii more than 30 percent of pet-friendly accommodations have cats!
