In March 2018, Jennifer and Justin reached an agreement to share custody of their four dogs. 

According to In Touch, the famous pair refer to the pets as their ‘children’ and have put visitation arrangements in place. 

The Just Go with It actress is believed to have lived with Dolly, terrier Clyde and a pit bull mix Sophie in LA, while The Iron Man 2 star resides in New York with the couple’s other pit bull. 

Bruce Almighty’s Jennifer revealed the couple named Dolly after the country singer Dolly Parton during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last year. 

The blonde has been vocal about her love for her pets in the past, as she said during a press conference back in 2009: ‘Men come and go, but there really is no relationship like the one you have with a dog.  

‘It is a pity that they – the dogs that is – don’t live as long as they should. You have to say goodbye way too soon. It makes me so sad. But the love of a dog is unconditional and I really love that. They are real friends.

‘I have some great human friends, of course, but my dog friends are very special. OK, so they don’t text me or buy me flowers but they do so much more.

‘They pick me up if I need it, they always greet me when I come home and they never complain about anything.It’s great to relax with the dogs around and us all watching something on TV’, she added.
