Jacob Tremblay (that’s Trom-blay), a.k.a. the 9-year-old heartbreaker from Room, a.k.a. the most adorable young actor alive, recently got his first puppy. Like most kids, Jacob and his siblings had been asking for a pup for a while, and after careful consideration the Tremblay clan brought home this nugget of cute.

At first, he told People, ideas for names swirled in their minds. “Daisy, that’s one of them,” he said. “Ginger is one of them, Izzy is one of them….” But Jacob put a request out on Twitter for help, and the Star Wars lover in him (and his fam) made the final decision.


Rey Tremblay, named for the resilient survivor from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has entered the building.

Jacob debuted Rey in the best way he knew how—by showing her off to all the celebs walking the WE Day carpet. Rey shared cuddles with stars like Demi Lovato, Joe Jonas, Charlize Theron, and none other than Kermit the Frog.

And she seems like the absolute perfect little lady. Jacob reported:

We noticed that the poodle one didn’t shed, is hypo [allergenic], it had all of that good stuff, and plus it was cute! Plus, it was cuddly! This one is perfect, because it’s quiet, so you can bring it on set. It’s not one of those loud dogs that go ‘Woof! Woof! Woof!’ She is just the one that whimpers. We haven’t heard her bark once, and she only whimpers like twice a week.

Only twice a week?! Now that’s a keeper, right there. Congrats on the adorable new family member, Tremblays!
