“I was definitely a little bit nervous about it, because, you know, Maverick means a lot to me, and it is super important in my life that he loves him, so it worked out well,” she told PEOPLE after introducing the pup to Pratt at the premiere of “Superpower Dogs.”

Schwarzenegger has never been shy about her love for animals. “I’ve grown up around dogs and loved dogs my whole life,” the author and daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger told Us Weekly. She currently serves as a brand ambassador for Pedigree, the iconic pet food brand.
