Russell Crowe got a second dog, a Papillion named Louis, in early 2022. Louis was tragically killed by a truck in March 2023 at only 16 months old. Crowe shared a photo of Louis and wrote a heartfelt tribute to his furry friend.
This is Louis the Papillion.@russellcrowe, Twitter, March 2023
16 months old.
Tiny, cheeky, brave. He won my heart.
Unfortunately today, on the second anniversary of my fathers passing, Louis was hit by a truck.
We tried to get him to the vet, but he died in my arms while I was telling him how much we loved him.
In June 2023, Russell Crowe got another Papillion who came with the name Ezekiel. Crowe’s girlfriend Britney Theriot saw the pup online, who is nearly identical to their late dog Louis, so she had to get him (by private jet, no less). You can read the full story here.
