Joan Rivers had 4 dogs - 2 rescue dogs, Samantha and Teegan, who lived with her in New York, as well as a Jack Russell Terrier and a Border Collie in California.

The late comedian  amassed a $150 million fortune, earning $40 million a year – and reportedly raked in over $1 billion in sales of clothing and jewelry in her partnership with home shopping network QVC over the last 24 years.

Her lavish apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East side – bought through a family trust – was recently valued at $35 million. And, as Joan publicly stated, everything goes to Melissa Rivers.

However, her goddaughter Tracie Hotchner has revealed that Joan also left ‘clear provision’ for her dogs, writing:

‘How could you not love a woman who, when push came to shove, called her doggies her best friends and in later years said they were better companions than a husband because ‘They didn’t leave the seat up!’
