Alfred will be looked after by Molly Hurwitz following Matthew Perry's death.

Sources had claimed that Lisa, who played Phoebe Buffay in Friends, would be taking in Alfred but this has since been disproven; the pooch will return to his original owner.

A source confirmed to People that Matthew did not own a dog at the time of his death.

Molly, 32, was engaged to the Friends actor in November 2020 but separated in June 2021.

On Molly's Instagram account, she has described Alfred as "very annoying a lot of the time" but is "truly the most loving potato."
