Stephen Root's pet Old Dogs

Old Dogs (Dog)

In a 2020 interview with Uproxx, Stephen Root mentions having old dogs that he’s taking care of. It’s unclear if these dogs are his or possibly foster dogs. When asked about having free time from not being able to work during the lockdown, he said, “It’s a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing in terms of I had been working so much, I didn’t mind the break for a couple or three weeks for the first part of this. It’s also a blessing in terms of we have some old dogs that we’re taking care of, and it gives us more time to take care of them.”
