Actress Pam Grier is convinced her new dog JAJA is the reincarnation of her dead pooch Jackie Brown.

The star, who named the dog after starring in Quentin Tarantino movie JACKIE BROWN, was desperate to replace her late pet and thinks she has been lucky enough to find the reborn spirit of her dead dog in a new puppy.

She explains, "Three days after Jackie died, I called the breeder and said, 'Do you have any females in any of your litters? I'll take one.'

"There was only one. It's uncanny - Jaja's behaviour and mannerisms, and all of the things she does, Jackie used to do."
