John Travolta's pet Dogs Accident Airport

Dogs Accident Airport

Two dogs that belonged to John Travolta passed away due to an accident on the Bangor International Airport in Maine in May 2010. An unidentified person who was not a member of the Travolta family but “a liaison” for them took the two dogs for a walk. A pickup truck driven by an airport employee was approaching the aircraft when it apparently struck and killed the animals.

Peanut (Formerly Mac N Cheese) (Dog)


John Travolta has a rescue dog named Peanut that he shares with his son Ben (and also likes to share pizza with). Formerly named Mac N Cheese, the Chihuahua was adopted from Paw Works rescue in 2022 before being renamed “Peanut” by Ben. The puppy and a few of his siblings were dumped in a box outside a shelter in California that works with Paw Works. Mac N Cheese was then one of a few lucky rescues selected by actress Jamie Lee Curtis to appear in an animal welfare segment dedicated to Betty White at the 94th Academy Awards in 2022. Then Travolta ended up adopting him after!
