Zorro (Dog)

Breed: Chihuahua

Rhea Perlman has a rescued Chihuahua named Zorro, that she also calls Zeus. On her Instagram, she posted the photo seen here, saying, “My ’60s flower dog. Zeus!”. But the dog’s nametag says “Zorro” and has been called Zorro in several interviews. There are photos of Zorry and Danny DeVito together, but Pearlman kept Zorro after they separated.

We found him, he was a rescue. We were at the beach house. It was a miserable pouring night. We were telling ghost stories in front of the fire. Then there’s a pause and we hear this ungodly sound which sounds like it’s coming from the floor. We were like ‘oh my God.’ Jake and his friend go out to look. There was that little fluff ball under there. That was 11 years ago.
