As Jennifer Aniston and ex-husband Justin Theroux mourn the loss of their dog, Dolly, a source tells ET that they have maintained a strong friendship since their split and that their dogs have continued to be “part of their family.”
“They differed on a lot of things -- where to live, how to handle the paparazzi, the types of hotels to stay in, but one thing they were always on the same page about was their dogs,” the source says. “They loved their animals and felt strongly about choosing rescue dogs. No expense was spared; the dogs had great care. People used to joke that the dogs had a better life than they did!”
Aniston adopted Dolly before she entered a relationship with Theroux, but during their time together, the two treated “all their dogs as equally theirs,” according to ET’s source. The former Friends star also had a rescue corgi, who died before Dolly, while Theroux has a pit bull named Kuma with him in New York.
Prior to Dolly’s death, she had been living with Aniston in Los Angeles, California, which the source says was better suited to the dog’s lifestyle.
