Tom Hardy is lots of things, from versatile actor to lovers of all things doggo.

Even the hardest-hearted cat lover will be stifling the odd “Aww!” when watching the video below, as Hardy babysits a bunch of very good dogs from the Battersea Dogs Home in England.

Beyond just revelling in seeing Tom play with some of the Home’s lovely, furry residents, you’ll also learn the odd bit of trivia – such as the actor’s favourite movie dog.

Meanwhile, you can watch Tom ripping it up big screen style in Venom, showing now in Australian cinemas.
