Does Ryan Reynolds Have Any Pets?

Ryan Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively have four dogs together named Penny, Baxter, Billie, and Boots.

Baxter (Dog)

Breed: Golden Retriever | Adopted 2008

Baxter is a big golden retriever Reynolds adopted while he was married to Scarlett Johansson in 2008. Since they split, Baxter lives with his dad full-time. Reynolds said this about meeting Baxter, “I saw this big, dumb-looking retriever staring up at me. I whispered to him, ‘Hey, let’s get the hell out of here.’ And he jumped up like he spoke English fluently. He came with me, he jumped in the car, and we’ve been best buddies ever since.”

Billie (Dog)

Breed: Mixed Breed

Ryan Reynolds sent his pup, Billie to obedience training. Reynolds says that before the training, “Billie was spitting acid at Sigourney Weaver and haunting the dreams of priests. Now she’s a leash-free, stress-free, fur-covered badass. And a certified general accountant.”

Boots (Dog)

Breed: Labradoodle

Ryan Reynolds has a Labradoodle named Boots. Boots made a rare appearance on Reynolds’ Instagram with this striking photo from famed photographer Guy Aroch. Reynolds said this in the caption, “This is my dog, Boots. She had her hair washed and her lips done hoping to be photographed by the one and only @guyaroch. He took this shot. His inspiration was pure pity. It was so extra and we were all really embarrassed for her. #WorthIt”

Penny (Dog)

Breed: Maltipoo

Blake Lively has one dog named Penny and three other dogs she shares with husband Ryan Reynolds. Penny is a teacup Maltipoo (Maltese-Poodle mix). She prefers to be carried by her mom instead of walking herself.

Peggy (Dogpool from 'Deadpool 3') (Dog)

Breed: Mixed Breed

In the movie Deadpool 3, a Chinese Crested-Pug mix called Peggy plays Dogpool, the dog version of Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool. Reynolds formally announced Dogpool in November 2023, which you can check out here. If you happen to recognize Peggy, she’s also known for winning the 2023 Britain’s Ugliest Dog competition.
