Starboy has a new star-dog!

The Weeknd welcomed a new four-legged friend into his inner circle days following news of his breakup with girlfriend Selena Gomez after 10 months of dating.

“Handsome devil,” the singer — born Abel Tesfaye — captioned a photo of a Doberman Pinscher  puppy on Instagram Thursday.

A source previously confirmed to PEOPLE that the pair’s split was due to their conflicting schedules, “It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”

While the two singers were constantly spotted traveling the world for The Weeknd’s concerts (and constantly sharing clothes all the while), the source revealed that it was still difficult for them to maintain their relationship and “that played a part in them getting distant.”

Though Gomez has been spotted with ex Justin Bieber recently, insiders previously told PEOPLE that their rekindled friendship was not responsible for the “Wolves” singer and The Weeknd.

“It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them. It’s over for now, but they’re still in touch,” a source said. (In fact, she’s still wearing his sweatshirt.)
