The American pop star was spotted carrying her new puppy around New York in a £2,000 Louis Vuitton animal carrier on Wednesday as she geared up for Thanksgiving.

The singer introduced her new pet to followers on social media earlier this week, revealing she had not yet named him but was calling him ‘cowpig’ and ‘moopig’ in the meantime.

Lady Gaga stepped out of her New York apartment wearing a checked jacket, jeans ripped at both knees and carrying a pink hat.

The high-end dog carrier is retailed by the fashion line at just over £2,000 (about N700,000) and has a breathable mesh window so pets can look out at the world while in transit.

Lady Gaga already has three other pets (all french bulldogs), and she also designs dog clothing.
