Here's what is happening to Carrie Fisher's dog, Gary Fisher, following her death

In the wake of "Star Wars" actress Carrie Fisher's death, many fans of the late star wondered what would happen to her beloved French bulldog, Gary Fisher, now that she won't be around to care for him.

Fisher, who passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 27, was inseparable from her adorable four-year-old pooch, and he even has his own Twitter account, which remains active. Gary was allegedly also present when Fisher suffered a major heart attack on a plane from London to LAX a few days before she died.

According to TMZ, Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, will take in the French bulldog alongside her own dog of the same breed, Tina. The two dogs are "best friends," according to reports.

This allegedly remains in line with Fisher's wishes that Lourd take custody of Gary. Though, TMZ adds, "if, for some reason, Billie can't care for Gary for the long haul, the dog will remain in the family."

Fisher initially adopted Gary as a service pet to help her with her bipolar disorder. Adding to their dynamic duo status? The fact that their names rhymed.

We're glad to see the Gary will remain in such good hands!
