Knives Out star Ana de Armas, 32, is a huge dog lover, and she couldn’t resist adding another pup to her crew during quarantine. Salsa, a fluffy black, white, and brown puppy with a giant tongue, made his debut on Instagram in July, and it was clear how much she already adored him. He quickly joined Ana and her boyfriend Ben Affleck, 48, on their daily quarantine walks around the neighborhood with their other dogs.
Miley Cyrus, 28, is known for her love of animals. Not only does she have a pack of adopted dogs, but a menagerie that includes cats, horses, and pigs. When she and Liam Hemsworth divorced, all of the animals stayed with Miley in Los Angeles. And in April, she introduced one special animal to her crew: a bulldog who had been taken in by firefighters in Fresno. She named the beauty Kate Moss and took her to set with her while filming the “Midnight Sky” music video.
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe‘s daughter Ava Phillippe, 21, announced on October 25 that she adopted a cute puppy the same day that her beloved dog Pepper passed away. “What a wild & bittersweet week.

He’s from the @bestfriendsanimalsociety sanctuary in Southern Utah and is a dream of a rescue dog.”
