Despite many reports claiming that actress Lisa Kudrow plans to adopt the dog of her late co-star, Matthew Perry, it has been revealed that the actor did not have one prior to his death.
Perry did once have a dog whom he shared with his ex-partner, Molly Hurwitz, but following their split, the dog has been under Hurwitz’s care.
This revelation comes on the heels of the “Friends” cast finally breaking their silence on Perry’s death.
Matthew Perry Has No Dog For Lisa Kudrow To Adopt
It has been revealed that the late “Friends” star, Matthew Perry, didn’t own a dog prior to his death.
Reports previously alleged that his co-star, Lisa Kudrow, intended to adopt Perry’s dog following news of his passing, but according to People magazine, a source confirmed this to be false.
Perry once had a dog, a doodle mix named Alfred, whom he shared with his ex-fiancée Molly Hurwitz. The duo dated for four years before calling it quits in 2021.
Since their separation, Alfred seems to have been under Hurwitz’s care and has made several appearances on her Instagram page, with the latest being a September post where she heaped praises on the dog for bringing joy to her life.
Hurwitz wrote at the time, “Alfred is three. He is very annoying a lot of the time, but he is truly the most loving potato. He entered my life during some dark depression, and he helped get me far away from that. He is also cute as all fuck. Cheers to you, Alfredo 💕 #adoptdontshop.”

Following news of his shocking death, Hurwitz took to her social media page to pay tribute to her ex-fiancé and reminisce on their life together.
“He would love that the world is talking about how talented he was. And he really was very talented,” Hurwitz began.
She continued, “As the Friends reunion was approaching, we rewatched the show together. ‘F—, I was so good!!!…See what I did there???’ We rewound and studied scenes. Our respect and appreciation of humor is something that connected us. Being with him as he rediscovered his brilliance was magical.”
“But, I obviously knew that man in a very different way, too. While I loved him deeper than I could comprehend, he was complicated, and he caused pain like I’d never known. No one in my adult life has had a more profound impact on me than Matthew Langford Perry. I have tremendous gratitude for that, for everything I learned from our relationship,” Hurwitz added.
She concluded her tribute by noting that she feels “relief” knowing that Perry is now “at peace.”

Since his passing, hundreds of fans have taken to the apartment where his character Chandler lived to pay tribute to the talented actor.
