Kevin Spacey - Kevin Spacey Names Adopted Puppy Boston

Oscar winner Kevin Spacey has paid tribute to Boston in the wake of last month's (Apr13) bombings by naming his new pet dog after the city.

The Usual Suspects star shared photos of his new puppy on Twitter.com on Saturday (04May13), and revealed the pooch has a very special name.

He wrote, "New member of the family. Her name is Boston in honor of the city."

Reports suggest Spacey adopted the dog from the North Shore Animal League America in New York.

The actor has special ties to Boston - he has visited victims, medical staff and cops who were involved in the atrocities of 15 April (13), telling the Boston Herald, "I'm not a doctor or first responder, but if people know me from movies, and walking into their work space or room brings a smile to their face - with the challenges these amazing citizens have in front of them - then that's worth coming."

He added, "The cops, nurses, doctors, hospital staff and patients that I have met over the past few days have given me the greatest feeling of pride in being an American and made me understand that we are all Boston."
