Not much is known about Nikolaj’s dogs, but here’s a quote from a GQ interview with him: “When I was a kid I was always afraid of small dogs, because they always seemed like the ones that would attack. Either they wanted to bite you or they wanted to f*ck you, and I didn’t like that. And the irony, of course, [is that] my family, we have two dogs and they’re two tiny, little, very sweet dogs.”
