Does Tom Hardy Have Any Pets?

Tom Hardy currently has one rescue dog: A French Bulldog named Bluey.

Woodstock Yamaduki Hardy (Dog)

Breed: Mixed Breed | Adopted 2011

Known as Woody for short, Hardy found him as an 11-week-old puppy running on a highway in Atlanta. He adopted him and brought him back home to England. This lucky rescue often joined Hardy as his date for many of his film premieres. And Hardy didn’t let him tag along on the red carpet just because they were best friends, he also wanted Woody to remind fans watching to also consider adopting. In June 2017, Hardy posted a tribute to Woody when he died after a battle with a muscle disease.

Bluey (Dog)

Breed: French Bulldog

Tom Hardy has a rescued French Bulldog named Bluey, who has been spotted by his side from celebrity-studded red carpets to adventurous hikes.

Georgia (Dog)

Breed: Bernard-Cross

Tom Hardy’s affection for canines isn’t limited to just his pets. Beyond participating in PETA initiatives, Hardy disclosed in an April 2015 Esquire interview that he had temporarily adopted a Bernard-cross named Georgia while filming “The Revenant” in Calgary. The actor enjoys watching the popular TV show “Come Dine with Me” in the company of Georgia. As for his ideal level of fame, Hardy aspires to a public profile that would allow him to stroll down the street with his dogs, be recognized by passersby, and receive friendly greetings.

Mad Max (Dog)

Breed: Staffie-Labrador

In a 2007 interview, Tom Hardy revealed he once had a dog named Mad Max. Tom Hardy’s bond with his Staffie-Labrador mix, Max, was remarkable and heartwarming. A constant companion since Tom was 17, Max not only went to drama school with him but also featured as Moose in one of Tom’s films, “Stuart: A Life Backwards.” The actor couldn’t envision attending classes without Max by his side, as the dog served as a source of focus, identity, and self-esteem. Tom’s connection with Max was so deep that the actor made it a point to include him in work contracts whenever shooting locations were in the UK. Max was more than just a pet; he was Tom’s “support unit” and an integral part of his life. Max passed away in September 2011.

Rescue Dog Advocacy (Dog)


Not just a remarkable actor, Hardy is also known for his deep love for dogs. He has often included his own dogs in various facets of his life, even to the extent of making provisions for them in work contracts. His canine companions have not only been constant fixtures in his personal life but have also played roles in shaping his compassionate worldview. His adoration for dogs extends beyond his own pets, encompassing rescue initiatives and PETA campaigns. This multi-faceted relationship with dogs adds another layer to his already rich and varied public persona.
