Joe Jonas demands 12 puppies every time he hits the stage

Los Angeles - Joe Jonas requests "12 puppies" on his tour rider.

The 26-year-old singer loves dogs so much he likes to have a cute canine cuddle before he performs so asks for a dozen pooches to be delivered to his dressing room - and some gig venues oblige.

Speaking to Fitzy And Wippa on Australian radio station Nova 96.9, he said: "I've had 12 puppies on the rider for a while.

"Every once in a while, a city will show up with 12 puppies."

The star is currently touring Australia with his DNCE bandmate Cole Whittle and as a result he has been embracing the local wildlife Down Under.

On Tuesday, he appeared to be visiting a koala sanctuary as he shared selfie alongside one of the marsupials, and was lucky to find one awake as the animals tend to sleep from around 16 to 18 hours a day.

What's more, before Joe's show in Nashville seven weeks ago he took a picture alongside Instagram sensation Doug the Pug, a canine with 1.9 million followers on the photo-sharing site.

He wrote: "Chillin with the homie @itsdougthepug before the Nashville show (sic)"
