There were twelve dogs on the Titanic. Here's what happened to them. Most of the attention around the sinking of the Titanic goes to the people who died and the engineering flaws that doomed the ship. But there were also dogs along board, whose last moments are surprisingly storied.
What other animals did the passengers bring on the Titanic? The Titanic carried a cat, 12 dogs, and some birds (a few hens and a canary) when it collided with the iceberg.
Charles Pellegrino estimated the rat population on a ship the size of the Titanic to be 6,000, but I guess the vessel was too new for the beasties to have procreated to their full potential. Pellegrino also gives figures of up to 350,000 cockroaches and 2 billion dust mites.
They were the forgotten victims of the Titanic: the pet animals locked up and helpless as the doomed passenger liner sank. Around 12 dogs, four hens, four roosters, 30 cockerels, one yellow canary and the ship's rat-catcher cat Jenny were on board the vessel's doomed maiden voyage.
More than 1500 people died in the disaster, but they weren't the only casualties. The ship carried at least twelve dogs, only three of which survived. First-class passengers often traveled with their pets.
