Despite Reports, Lisa Kudrow Is Not Adopting Matthew Perry’s Dog Because He Didn’t Have One!

Following the sudden death of actor Matthew Perry on Saturday, it has been confirmed that he did not have a dog at the time of his passing. Despite previous reports suggesting that his Friends co-star, Lisa Kudrow, would adopt his dog, a source has confirmed to People magazine that Perry was not a dog owner.

Prior to his death, Perry had been a proud dog dad to a doodle mix named Alfred, whom he shared with his ex-girlfriend Molly Hurwitz. Perry and Hurwitz started dating in 2018, got engaged in November 2020, but eventually called it quits in June 2021.

Since their breakup, Alfred has become a regular feature on Hurwitz's Instagram account.

In a September post, she expressed her love for the pup, stating, "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."

Hurwitz recently reflected on her time with Perry in a heartfelt Instagram tribute, describing him as having had "a more profound impact" on her adult life than anyone else.

Perry's former Friends castmates, including Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer, also released a joint statement expressing their devastation over Perry's passing.

They emphasized their close bond as a family and requested privacy during this difficult time.

In a previously published interview with People magazine in October 2022, Perry praised his Friends co-stars for their unwavering support throughout his struggles with substance abuse. He likened their support to that of penguins, who rally around an injured member until they can stand on their own.

The cause of Matthew Perry's death has not been disclosed. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner's Office has completed an autopsy, and further details are pending the release of a toxicology report. The Friends cast and fans around the world continue to mourn the loss of the beloved actor.
