Does Camila Alves Have Any Pets?


Dog: Red Heeler | Adopted 2006

After the tragic loss of Ms. Hud, McConaughey revealed Foxy on Oprah Winfrey’s show in February 2006. This red heeler is a breed of Australian cattle dog, which are descendants of the dingo. Foxy has appeared many times in the tabloids, thanks to his human often being photographed running shirtless on the beach.


Dog: White Mutt

B.J. was his second dog after Foxy, with initials that stand for “Beef Jerky”. He shared a crazy story about B.J. on The Graham Norton Show that involves BJ, a giant ram and throwing his baby down a cliff to escape. Check out the video for the full story.


Dog: Black Mutt | Adopted Aug 2012

Bigi is his third dog, who was picked up as a puppy by his wife Camila in August 2012.
