Willow Smith Walks Pink Pooch: Other Stars Who Dip-Dyed Their Dogs (GALLERY)

Willow Smith has always showed her true colors — with her hair tresses.

After whipping her hair back and forth, the starlet shaved her head and bleached her crop-cut bleach blonde in February. Then Smith took a cue from Kermit the Frog with a green 'do in early March, before ditching the muted hue for bold, bright neon yellow hair.

Now the 11-year-old's color craze has shown up on her pet pooch.

It seems Smith has hopped on the dyed doggie bandwagon.

The starlet raised eyebrows by stepping out with her pink-hued pooch in Calabasas, Calif., on Monday afternoon. While the pup's body was au naturel, her ears and four paws were cotton-candy colored — a look that has People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) up in arms.

"Most people who dye their dog's fur aren't aware that doing so can cause the animal stress and can lead to complications or allergic reactions that endanger the animal's health," PETA said in a statement to Celebuzz. "Our dogs and cats love us regardless of how we look. Why not extend the same kindness to them?"

Smith is certainly not the first celebrity to tint their canine — nor is she the first to land in hot water for it. She follows in the heavily criticized footsteps of stars like Aubrey O'Day, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Alessandra Ambrosio, who also came under fire from animal rights organizations like PETA.
