Stallone has said for a long time that he loves the dog in the movies “Rocky” and “Rocky 2.”
The Rocky actor, 76, recently covered up an old tattoo of his wife’s face with a tribute to his late dog Butkus, who showed up in the film and its sequel.
After the Daily Mail published photos of the actor’s tattoo coverup, Stallone’s spokesperson, Michelle Bega, said, “Mr. Stallone planned to update his wife Jennifer’s tattoo picture, but the results were unsatisfactory and, unfortunately, can’t be fixed.”
She continued, “Mr. Stallone is devoted to his family.” The Stallones are currently working on a reality show for Paramount+.
In May, Stallone and Flavin celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary by posting tributes to each other on Instagram.
“Happy 25th anniversary to my amazing wife,” Stallone, 75, titled a photo carousel of the couple. There aren’t enough words to describe how much this selfless, dedicated, and patient woman has meant to our lives, and I only wish she could be here for another 25 years! Thank you so much, sweetie!
Flavin, 53, wrote alongside her own photo collection in a now-deleted post, “We are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary! Thank you for always making me laugh and for always loving and defending our wonderful family!
Every year, our marriage improves! She reached a conclusion. I can’t wait for the rest of our lives to be spent with you!
Stallone’s new tattoo, according to different articles, is a profile image of the bullmastiff who died of a heart attack in 1981.
Stallone has long been a dog lover, and in 2017, he shared an Instagram photo of himself as a child with a puppy dog named Butkus.
When the shot was taken in 1971, Stallone and the dog were “both emaciated, hungry, and living in a flophouse above a subway stop.”

In the article, he admitted to selling the dog for $40 because he couldn’t afford food.
Rocky’s screenplay had been sold, and I had the option of buying him back, but the new owner saw my desperation and charged me $15,000. He was definitely worth the money! The piece was written by Stallone.
