Does Will Smith Have Any Pets?

Indo, Gracie, Zhaki, Tyson (Dog)

Breed: Rottweilers

Will Smith and Jada Pinket Smith have five Rottweilers. The dogs’ names are Indo, Gracie, Zhaki, and Tyson. It’s not known what the 5th Rottweiler’s name is. These dogs also received training from Cesar Millan, who is a good friend with Jada and gifted her Indo. Jada took in one of the Rotwiellers from a friend. The other two were gifts to Will from Jay Leno. It’s unknown how many of these dogs are still alive, as neither Will nor Jada has mentioned or posted about them since the mid-2010s.

Abbey (Samantha from 'I Am Legend') (Dog)

Breed: German Shephard | Adopted 2007

Abbey is the dog who’s famous for costarring with Will Smith in the 2007 film I Am Legend. The German Shepherd played the role of Samantha (also known as Sam) Will Smith’s only companion as one of the only surviving humans after a zombie-like virus outbreak. Will Smith admitted to falling in love with the dog during filming. Their romance actually started before filming, with the pair going on “dates” to get to know each other better. The film’s animal trainer adopted Abbey from a kennel and was able to properly train her for the role in a few weeks. Kona, another German Shepherd of Abbey’s trainer/owner Steve Berens, was Abbey’s stand-in. Smith also admitted begging to adopt her after filming, but her owner declined the offer.

Will Smith said he’s kept his distance from dog ownership since he was 9 years old, due to the trauma of his dog being hit by a car. After filming I Am Legend, he regained his confidence with dogs and became a proud dog dad of five Rottweilers with his wife, Jada Pinket Smith.

Fang (Dog)

Breed: Husky | Adopted 2009

Jada Pinkett and Will Smith had a Husky named Fang that they adopted in 2009. Fang sadly passed away in January 2024 at the age of 15.

Lucco (Dog)

Breed: Mixed Breed | Adopted Aug 2023

In August 2023, Jada Pinkett shared the news that the Smith family adopted a rescue pup named Lucco.
