In the scene from The Office where Will Ferrell is training Andy Bernard how to be a good salesman, he is holding a dog that looks very similar to Baxter from Anchorman. Is Will Ferrell partial to this particular dog?

    This is speculation, hence why I'm commenting, not answering. Maybe it's his personal dog. – MissouriSpartan Nov 21 '18 at 20:56

I assume you are referring to this scene in the animal shelter:

Scene of Andy and Deangelo in Dog

He could be partial to that breed (the Border Terrier), but it is not the same dog:

Anchorman was made in 2004:

That dog's real name is Peanut, he died in 2010, according to the same source, and no mention of another relation to Will Ferrell is made. In Anchorman 2 another dog was cast.

Season 7 of The Office U.S. was made in 2010 (it's hard to get a proper shot):

The differences in size and colouring become obvious here.

  • Thank you. I was looking for a clip of the show but couldn't find one. – Jason P Sallinger Jan 31 '19 at 14:49
