In a move that I’m sure has absolutely nothing to do with controlling the damage caused by last week’s PR nightmare, Ben Affleck has recently adopted a stray dog. Ben may have hands of cheap nickel, but he’s got a heart of pure gold.
A source tells Entertainment Tonight says that Ben fell in love with a stray husky in Los Angeles a month ago. Ben’s dog, whose name isn’t currently known, was papped yesterday.

Of course the skeptic in me can’t help but notice the timing of Ben’s dog adoptions and subsequent public debut always seem to happen after something bad has happened. I’m sure I’m just overthinking it! As for how Ben has been doing lately – because I’m sure you’ve been worried about poor Ben – ET’s source says he’s doing fine.
“He continues to work on himself. He’s happy,” the source adds.”Ben is focused on staying healthy. And he’s enjoying his time with Lindsay [Shookus].”
Well, the best of luck to Ben and his new dog, and especially to Lindsay. My family’s former dog was a husky, and she shed like she had a family of smaller dogs living under her fur. Although I’m sure Lindsay will be fine. Random clumps of husky fur stuck to your pants is nothing compared to waking up and finding the left side of your pajamas soaked with Ben’s sweat after he had another nightmare about playing Batman.
