puppylovers was a term used to designate fans of the ship Remus/Sirius, also a way to identify those who followed the ship when it was first called puppylove in the mid-2000s.
It seems to have fallen into disuse of favor as the ship was being renamed[note 1] at the same time that puppylove also started designating others pairings like Sirius/Hermione -- according to FictionAlley's SCUSA.
It's an analogy to the fact that both characters are at some point puppies, due to his transformations into werewolf and dog by Lupine's lycanthropy and Black's animagus form.
