Morgan Freeman once had dogs but stopped adding after his last one passed away.
“… I had my own dogs. Up until the last one. Which was a wonderful animal. A malamute that I raised in an apartment in New York. She was wonderful, very smart dog. After her I was on the boat. I was at sea most of the time. So that was not conducive to having my size dog. I’m not one who wants a lapdog. I want something that’ll eat something.”
