The series’ official Instagram account @amcthewalkingdead also posted a gallery of Seven, praising him as the show’s “best boy.”

Reedus has requested a doggy sidekick for several seasons before finally getting his wish, with Seven first appearing in season 9 in 2018. In TWD’s final episode in 2022, Daryl leaves Dog in the hands of his adopted niece Judith Grimes (played by Cailey Fleming).
