After a two-show day, Broadway’s pet-owning performers love nothing more than coming home to their number one fan: a loyal four-legged friend. In honor of the annual Broadway Barks dog and cat adoption event, coming up on July 9 in Shubert Alley, we asked stage stars to show their puppy—and kitty!—love by telling us all about their furry pals.

What is your pet’s name and breed?
Bauer, Boston Terrier
How did your pet get its name?
We are fans of Jack Bauer on TV's 24.
What is your pet’s favorite pastime?
Hunting lizards in southern Florida and doing the army-crawl.
Does your pet know any tricks?
He can run up my boyfriend, so we don't have to bend down and pick him up at airport security!
What’s the funniest thing your pet has done?
Bauer is the funniest when he's acting in his comedic moments of his TV show that is being shopped: www.theworstgeneration.tv
What’s the naughtiest thing your pet has done?
Bauer peed on an actor's script during a rehearsal for a play my boyfriend was directing. But he was a puppy, so no hard feelings.
Do you look like your pet?
Unfortunately no. He's way more muscular than me, from all his beach sprinting.
