Tracee Ellis Ross: I Am My Dog's Assistant

Posted on

Tracee Ellis Ross, like any parent, can’t help but gush about her kid – her furkid, that is.

“She, I think, is gorgeous like a supermodel,” the Reed Between the Lines star tells PEOPLE of her dog, Ladybug. “I think she looks like a cross between Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bündchen.”

And just like any other supermodel of her caliber, Ladybug can’t do it all alone, so she counts on her trusty owner to give her the support she needs.

“Let me put it this way: I am her employee. I am my dog’s assistant,” she says. “I try to be the alpha in the relationship, but I don’t think I am.”

Check out the rest of our video with Tracee Ellis Ross (and Malcolm Jamal Warner) for more on the actress and her supermodel dog.
