Lucy Hale steps out in tight workout shorts and tie dye hoodie for a hike with her beloved pet pooch Elvis in LA
Lucy Hale recently added a new member to her pack: a small female puppy she named Ethel.
But on Saturday, during one of her daily walks, the Pretty Little Liars actress decided to leave her little girl home, and took a hike with her beloved Maltipoo, Elvis.
Keeping a steady pace, Hale walked along the sidewalks and side streets of her Studio City neighborhood in Los Angeles with the adorable furry white pooch close behind.

With the shine shining down, the Tennessee native stepped out in tight green workout shorts with a tie dye hoodie and grey sneakers.
And to help with the glare, she donned a LA Dodgers baseball cap over her shoulder-length brown tresses.
At times, she hyped herself up by rocking out to some music on a pair of oversized headphones.
She also had a protective mask handy at all times, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, just in case she came in close proximity of anybody out on the roads.

The actress took to her social media platforms last weekend to share the news that she had adopted Ethel not long after she had been fostered by actress Kristen Bell.
‘My little family of 3. Everyone meet Ethel. Thank you Melissa and everyone at @wagmorpets for rescuing her & for all you do to find safe homes for these angels,’ she shared in the caption of one of the photos she posted.
‘And big thank you to the best @kristenanniebell for fostering!! We love u.’
As a dog-lover, Hale has tried to use her time and star power to help animals in need, which includes a partnership with Purina in support of the Purple Leash Project. The organization hopes to increase the number of pet-friendly shelters for survivors of domestic abuse.

The Katy Keene star also knows first-hand how important of a role our pets can have within the family unit.
‘I did all of quarantine alone, so I honestly don’t know what I would’ve done without Elvis,’ she confessed he confessed in October 2020, about seven months into the pandemic.
‘He kept me company and kept me sane.’
Hale has no less than three new films in some phase of post-production: the romantic comedy The Hating Game, alongside Austin Stowell; the dark comedy Big Gold Brick, co-starring Emory Cohen, Andy Garcia, Megan Fox, Oscar Isaac, Shiloh Fernandez and Frederick Schmidt; and the survival thriller Borrego, also starring Nicholas Gonzalez.
