Facebook's $19 billion WhatsApp acquisition in 2014 might not have happened if it wasn't for CEO Mark Zuckerberg's Hungarian sheepdog, Beast.




In an interview with CNN, Zuckerberg said, "My dog Beast, I think, is actually the secret weapon here."




According to Zuckerberg, negotiations were tense but when Beast hopped onto WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum's lap "a second later Jan goes like, 'Okay, I think we’re good.'"

“My dog Beast, I think, is actually the secret weapon here," he said. "It was a tense moment and Jan was like, ‘All right I need to think about this.’"
