Emma Watson clears the air over pink dog

London: Actress Emma Watson, who was seen walking a pink dog, has responded to criticism by animal lovers by saying the pet does not belong to her.

The 22-year-old tweeted to clarify that the canine belonged to a friend who is working on breast cancer awareness.

"PinkDarcyDog is pink because her owner is raising money for breast cancer. I wish Darcy was my dog but she isn`t. Was just walking her. Just to clarify one more time that I don`t have a dog. Fact checking takes five minutes," she wrote.

Watson was clicked with the pink coloured canine in London last week.
