You’re probably going to see a lot of comparisons between Allison Janney’s role as Lou in the new Netflix movie Lou and John Wick. Not only is Janney a serious badass in the film, but she’s also very attached to her adorable dog Jax. However, we all know the dog doesn’t make it out alive of John Wick. Does the dog in Lou die?
Spoilers ahead for the Netflix movie Lou
Lou is a mysterious loner, happy to live a quiet life with her dog. But all of that changes when her neighbor, Hannah (Jurnee Smollett), comes begging for help after her daughter gets kidnapped in the middle of a horrible storm. Lou and Hannah must put aside their differences to try and find the little girl before it’s too late.
Logan Marshall-Green, Matt Craven, and Ridley Asha Bateman also star.
Does the dog die in the Netflix movie Lou?
Thankfully the dog does not die in the movie. Jax doesn’t even get hurt, so anyone who was scarred by movies like My Dog Skip or Homeward Bound doesn’t have to concern themselves with his well-being in this movie. It’s not clear exactly what type of dog Jax is, but he looks like a lab mix of some kind. Either way, he’s adorable, and he survives.
What happens to Jax in Lou?
At the end of the movie, Lou gives Jax to Hannah so she can take care of him. Hannah takes Jax to live with her and Vee in Seattle after they leave the island behind.
Lou is now streaming on Netflix.
