Does Natasha Lyonne Have Any Pets?

Root Beer (Dog)

Breed: Maltipoo

Natasha Lyonne has a Maltipoo named Root Beer. She believes their unbreakable bond is due to Root Beer being her human daughter in a past life. If you’re wondering how she knows that, it’s because a psychic told her so. In a 2014 interview with Vanity Fair, she told the story of how she got Root Beer:

Well, you know, I dognapped her from my friend’s brother Dave, who had this adorable dog named Root Beer. I saw her across the room and it was the most real experience I’ve ever had of love at first sight. Historically, the “love at first sights” that I’ve had have been bad news. But Root Beer just came jumping over and Dave was like, “Oh, you haven’t met Root Beer yet?”
