Twilight actor Robert Pattinson reveals name of adopted pup

As we previously reported, Robert Pattinson adopted a puppy from a shelter in Louisiana.  The pup was days away from being put down.

The name Pattinson chose for his new dog was a mystery at the time, but it has been recently revealed that he has been calling the dog “Bear.” Upon adoption the pooch came with the name "Yogi Bear" but the Twilight actor was not fond of it.

In an interview with MTV Pattinson stated, “I thought Yogi Bear was a little much. It was a toss up between Forrest or Bear, so Bear got it.”
