Amitabh Bachchan’s Pet Dog: A Piranha Dane Breed
Everyone knows that Big B loves dogs, he calls them an essential part of his family. Amitabh Bachchan feels pets can be a great companion who stand with you through thick and thin. Big B used to have a Piranha Dane Dog named “Shanouk” (unfortunately he’s no more). Mr. Bachchan used to love spending time with his dog.
He had even done a photo-shoot with his dog once. And though the megastar must have posed for thousands of photoshoots, the one with his pet dog was definitely unique!
Photo-shoot for a Pet Magazine Cover
Amitabh Bachchan recently posed for a photoshoot along with his pet dog, Shanouk, for the cover of as yet unnamed magazine.
Here’s what Big B tweeted about the photo-shoot:
“Did photoshoot with Shanouk, my Piranha Dane for cover of a magazine on dogs by the ebullient Farzana Contractor, wife of BusyBee (Behram Contractor)”
He even posted a picture of the photoshoot, and wrote: “That picture is of Shanouk, my Piranha Dane…Shanouk – a warm gentle breeze on a cold winter morning…”
Recently (after he became a Grand-Dad), Amitji had tweeted saying how his dog had been feeling ignored ever since Abhishek and Aishwarya had a baby.
But I guess the photo-shoot makes Shanouk happy now!

Big B’s Pet Dog Shanouk No More
Unfortunately, Amitabh Bachchan’s beloved pet dog, Shanouk, is no more. The dog died after a brief illness. Shanouk, which means a gentle warm breeze on a cold morning, was named by Big B’s son Abhishek.
“The gentle warm breeze on a cold morning’… Just stopped. Shanouk my pet Piraana Dane passed away a short while ago…,” had tweeted Bachchan after the incident.
