Carrie Fisher’s dog Gary has already found a new home in wake of the “Star Wars” icon’s death Tuesday.
Fisher’s daughter, actress Billie Lourd (“Scream Queens”), will take custody of the beloved French bulldog, according to his very own Twitter feed, which appears to confirm media reports that surfaced Wednesday morning.

TMZ reported that Fisher always wanted Lourd to take care of Gary if something happened to her. Her daughter already has a French bulldog named Tina that is best friends with Gary.
Fisher, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, adopted the French bulldog more than three years ago to settle her nerves. Gary has since accompanied her on red carpets and sat-in for on-camera interviews, quickly turning him into a fan-favorite.
“This is Gary. He’s very, very famous on Twitter,” the actress said, introducing Gary during a “Good Morning America” appearance to promote “The Force Awakens” last December (video below). Gary’s account currently has more than 50,000 followers.
“Gary is mental also,” Fisher previously joked during an interview with the Herald Tribune. “My mother says Gary is a hooligan. Gary is like my heart. Gary is very devoted to me and that calms me down. He’s anxious when he’s away from me.”
Fisher died Tuesday, four days after she had a heart attack on a United flight. Throughout the holiday weekend, her brother and mother Debbie Reynolds had been telling fans Fisher’s condition was stable, until family spokesman Simon Halls told media the “Star Wars” actress had passed away.
Representatives for Fisher and Lourd have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
