Lena Dunham's Boyfriend Jack Antonoff Defends Her Amid Animal Shelter Controversy

Lena Dunham‘s longtime boyfriend Jack Antonoff is coming to her defense following her animal shelter controversy.

The 31-year-old former Girls star made the difficult decision to give up her beloved dog Lamby due to aggressive behavoir he showed throughout the four years she cared for him.

The shelter where she adopted Lamby recently spoke out, expressing that the dog had never shown signs of aggression or an abusive past.

Despite the shelter’s claims, Jack, who lived with the dog for four years, is siding with Lena.

“nobody on earth cares for or loved lamby more than lena. after her bit her father and her twice we found a trainer who deals with aggressive dogs who he now lives happily with. was a deeply hard decision,” Jack wrote on his Twitter.

He added, “shoutout to everyone who has an opinion on this and didn’t live with us the past 4 years!”

    Before the puppy had 4 years of issues that she painstakingly tried cope with…now her puupy had issues with biting he says? The issue i have with this “excuse” is that he says it happen 3 possibly 4 who knows times. Many of have owned pets that have had discipline issues, wouldn’t this have been resolved after bite one or two? Plus when she posted about it the initial time(remember she posted on it no one literally strapped her down to ask about the puppy) she made it sound like it was this whole thing where the dog was emotionally torn. She never alluded to any biting or harming someone. You know what would be good in this situation, for her and her man (with his horrible good intentions because he’s making it worse) to just stop talking about it. Becuse she is the one looking worse and worse.

    Dogs have a 6th sense. I think it just got a whiff of their arrogance, pro edge and douchebaggery and decided he didn’t like them…like mos normal people.

    I hope she didn’t treat the dog like she did her baby sister.

    Dogs don’t just start biting for no reason. There is usually a reason for it and if it isn’t health issues then what’s the bet someone was ill treating the poor love and he finally snapped.

    This guy must have dependancy issues. Jack, start running and don’t stop till your shoes are worn through-like Gump did. Only then will your head be clear. I don’t care that she had enough of the dog-that’s cool, it’s that jack is stuck in the relationship that bothers me.
