Saoirse Ronan has a Terrier mixed breed dog named Fran. She told Jimmy Fallon, “We think [Fran’s] a Westie terrier mixed with a Golden Retriever and I don’t know how that worked at the time. I think if I was a dog, I’d look like Fran. She’s blonde and a bit… mad looking.” Fran was named after a fictional Dublin drug dealer in the RTÉ crime series Love/Hate.
