Does Charlize Theron Have Any Pets?

Tucker (Dog)

Breed: Mix Breed | Adopted 2001

Theron currently has one rescue named Tucker who she says is very sweet, reserved and aware. She adopted him way back in 2001 and he’s still going strong.

Orson, Denver, Delilah, Berkley, Johnny, Dog Pitt and more (Dog)

Breed: Rescue Dogs

Theron has had a many rescue dogs over the years and is believed to only have Tucker right now, but has taken in many rescues over the years, with some passing away. She had Orson, which was a Dane-Dalmatian mix in the early 2000s. Denver and Delilah were two cocker spaniels she had in the late 90s/early 2000s. She adopted Berkley (a terrier mutt) and Dog Pitt (a pit bull) in the early 2010s. She has been photographed with a number of other dogs and we imagine they might often be foster dogs she’s caring for.
