Does Christopher Lloyd Have Any Pets?

Einstein (Dog)

Breed: Bearded Collie | Adopted Oct 1985

In the best film series ever, “Back to the Future,” the character Doc Brown, played by Christopher Lloyd, has a dog named Einstein. Einstein is a Bearded Collie and the first dog to travel back in time. He’s often mistaken as a Sheepdog, with Beaded Collies looking very similar. When Marty McFly travels back to 1955, Doc Brown’s dog at that time was named Copernicus. Einstein was named after scientist Albert Einstein. Copernicus was named after Nicolas Copernicus, a mathematician and astronomer from the late 1400s. The dog actor that played Einstein in “Back to the Future” was named Tiger. In “Back to the Future Part II” and “Part III,” Einstein was played by a dog named Freddie. Fun fact, for several stunts that used long shots, a man in a dog suit was used instead of a real dog.
