The Sweetest Thing star kept warm in a stylish dark gray coat with a collar trimmed in faux fur while Scout looked dapper in his service dog vest.

Blair’s weathered blue jeans were rolled up at the ankle, showcasing her black lace-up boots.

She carried a large designer tote bag of quilted leather and brought a pop of color to her look with Scout’s red leash.

The Hellboy star added the handsome pooch to her family in December 2021 to provide emotional support and physical aid following her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2018.

Introducing Scout to her 3.1 million Instagram followers in December, Selma wrote: ‘Scout helps me with some personal stumbling blocks and aids in my mobility.’

She went on to urge people not to approach them if you see her on the street because they are ‘working’ as a team to help build up her ‘stamina and coordination.’ 

The Mean Baby author opened up to People in May about the bond she shares with her partner. 

Calling Scout ‘a tremendous gift,’ Blair said: ‘He’s with me all the time. If I fall into a big [muscle] spasm or have some trouble moving and need to recalibrate, he can get between my legs, help me get up, and balance me. It’s given me a lot of independence.’

In addition to providing Selma companionship and support throughout her journey, Scout also gives her 10-year-old son Arthur peace of mind. 

Blair told People: ‘My son, when he goes to his dad’s, he loves knowing Scout is by my side. And I didn’t realize he had concerns about my mobility or safety.’

The Legally Blonde star shares Arthur with her ex-boyfriend, fashion designer Jason Bleick, 53, whom she dated from 2010 to 2012. 

‘A real miracle was that I realized what support did for me,’ Selma shared with People. ‘I’m a single mom, and I am alone a lot with my kid, and I wanted legitimate support.’
