Justin Theroux shared sad news on his official Instagram account as he announced his beloved dog Dolly has passed away. Dolly spent time with both Justin and Jennifer Aniston as a couple and new photos shared from Dolly’s memorial service have many people believing Jennifer was in attendance. Whether she was there or not, there is no doubt that she was just as emotionally gripped as Justin over the passing of the beautiful white shepherd.
Justin shared several photos from the service that featured Dolly covered in beautiful flower petals and in one picture, burning sage was visible. It was clear the ceremony was a spiritual one and that Justin was greatly moved over the loss of such a beautiful and powerful creature.
Sharing six heartbreaking photos, one photo showed a woman holding Justin’s hand as they both rested their hands on Dolly’s leg. Many people believe that the woman holding Justin’s hand in comfort is Jennifer Aniston.

“Tonight, at sunset, after a heroic struggle… our most loyal family member and protector, Dolly A. laid down her sword and shield. 🐺💔 She was surrounded by her entire family. “The one that never deserts, the one that never proves ungrateful… is the dog— faithful and true, even in death.”
Rest In Peace Dolly

Though it hasn’t been 100 percent confirmed the woman holding Justin’s hand is Jennifer many believe it is her. Jennifer isn’t on Instagram so the post doesn’t include a tag featuring Jennifer’s name and you can’t see the woman’s face in the photo. Some say that this is even more proof that is is Jennifer as she guards her privacy and wouldn’t want the focus on Dolly’s ceremony to be overshadowed by her presence or rumors about her relationship with Justin.
Justin is an avid animal lover and frequently shares photos and posts about helping animals on his social media accounts and pointed out that Dolly was a rescue dog.
Pets become part of our families and losing a pet is just as painful as losing a human loved one. Many of Justin’s friends reached out on social media to share their condolences.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Justin and Jennifer at this time.
