Along with its passengers and crew, twelve dogs were also onboard Titanic. The twelve canines were brought onboard by ten of Titanic’s First Class passengers and their families, including John Jacob Astor. Out of the twelve dogs onboard only three survived, a Pekinese and two Pomeranians. The Pomeranians were brought onto lifeboats by their mistreses, Margaret Hays and Mrs Elizabeth Barrett Rothschild. A Pekinese named Sun Yat Sen was saved by his master, Henry S. Harper, in Lifeboat 3.
