Gary originally belonged to Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd. Fisher adopted the French bulldog in 2012 to serve as a service dog. Gary helped his mom deal with her bipolar disorder until her passing in 2016. In 2019, Gary moved to Florida with Fisher's former assistant Corby McCoin and is now officially retired.


Although Gary Fisher is no longer living a life in the spotlife, we still get updates from the pooch on Instagram. McCoin makes sure that Gary's 167,000 followers are up to date when it comes to Gary news.

Gary has never appearend in a Star Wars movie. However, director Rian Johnson had paid tribute to the iconic pup. In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a small dog-like alien appears in the Canto Bight scene. Johnson confirmed that the new character was inspired by Gary.
