As the star of Disney XD’s popular series Zeke & Luther, Hutch Dano is the crush-worthy object of plenty of teen girls’ affections. But the 18-year-old star already has a lovely lady in his life: Bella, his 8-month-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel.

“She’s the dog you want while watching a movie,” says Dano. “I’m an action guy and she’s not very sensitive to noise. She’ll curl up on your lap and no matter what explosion goes off, she will not wake up!”

The busy actor – who plays the iconic role of Henry Huggins in the new Beverly Cleary-inspired movie Ramona and Beezus, and stars in the new Disney Channel movie Den Brother, airing Aug. 13 – has two other dogs as well: 3-year-old Puggle Buddy and 10-year-old rescue dog Chance, a Lab mix.

Chance “is very protective,” says Dano. “Definitely the guard dog of the group.” As for Buddy, “he’s this dog that just has infinite energy. He can literally knock you on your butt!”

All of his dogs – along with two cats – “are so loving, and they can make you happy no matter how bummed out you are,” says Dano. “They’re just all a great part of the family.”
