Does Octavia Spencer Have Any Pets?

Ethel (Dog)

Breed: Brussels Griffon | Adopted Jan 2015

Announced on Elle in January 2015 that she was getting it the next week. She had a friend who had a Brussels which inspired her to choose that breed. The Brussels in a Belgian breed that originally bred to hunt rats and are known for their energy and intelligence. She also said she needed a dog to look normal when she walks around her neighborhood. This is because she likes to patrol her neighborhood for suspicious activity, but doesn’t want to look suspicious herself, walking around all the time without a dog. This is her first dog since her beloved German shepherd died when she was a kid.
