Pony the Puppy – Might be Recast?

In the festive Virgin River holiday episodes, Jack surprised Mel with an adorable puppy named Pony. Initially, showrunner Patrick Sean Smith planned to use the same puppy to play an older version of Pony, as season six will jump forward in time.

However, due to the Hollywood strikes and the subsequent delays in filming, Pony the puppy may now be too grown up to fit the role in season six.

Patrick shared with TVLine, “I had always expected there would be a time jump after the holidays when we start Season 6, so the dog would age naturally as we went back into production. But we didn’t factor in the five-month strike. So I’m unsure where Pony is now in terms of their growth. I hope we don’t have to find a new dog, but we might have to.”

Stay tuned for updates about season six of Virgin River!
