Scarlett Johansson is a famous actress who adores dogs. She is well-known for leading roles in films like Lost in Translation and Girl with a Pearl Earring. What many people don’t know is she is also an animal advocate with a heart of gold. In this story, Johansson pairs up with The Dodo to go on a date with an adorable Pit Bull named Ocean. Ocean is 12 years old and doesn’t have a home to call her own. The Pittie certainly deserves the best day ever, and Johansson is prepared to give her just that!


When the two first meet, Johansson asks, “How long has she been single for?” The film crew and actress go back and forth while Ocean is further introduced to Johansson. The kind-hearted actress then hands a bouquet of dog-friendly roses to Ocean. The pup wiggles her tail in delight! Johansson pulls one rose from the bunch and hands it to Ocean who proudly holds it in her mouth.


Next, it’s time to take her to the spa for a full treatment. It includes the works: a mani, pedi, snacks, belly rubs, kisses, and tons of squishy snuggles. Ocean is in puppy heaven! She basks in the attention as Johansson speaks to her in the gentlest manner. Finally, the precious Pit is getting the attention she has been craving.

In the doggy-date-day series, The Dodo celebrates adoptable dogs and helps them find forever homes. Ocean found a family right after her special day with Johansson and now gets to enjoy her golden years in a loving home filled with all the love in the world!
