Jeffrey Dean Morgan Tattoos Late Dog’s Name on his Arm


The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan honored his late pet by tattooing the dog’s name on his forearm two days after she died.

The actor, who plays ruthless Negan on TV, is a huge dog lover and when his best pal Bisou passed away in 2015, he struggled to cope with the tragedy.

Two years later, he’s still touched by her passing, revealing he honored the faithful friend by getting her name inked on his arm.

“She was a dog that I got 19 years ago, that I rescued,” Morgan tells the Hudson Valley News Network. “I rescued her on the Venice boardwalk (in Los Angeles). Some kids were selling three litters of puppies and I dug through the box and there was one, that, she was maybe four inches long, and I was like, ‘I want to take that one that’s not going to make it through the day’.

“I bottle-fed her for about a month… (and) two days after she passed I had her name tattooed on my arm. But oh, my God I miss her, I miss her so much.”

It was Jeffrey’s 10th tattoo – his others include a gun on his inner forearm and his son Augustus‘ nickname, Gusy, on his fingers.
