"Thank you for introducing us to this little bug, @jenatkinhair and @mrmikerosenthal! she is perfectly sweet and adorable and I *think* perhaps the best cuddler in our whole house," Teigen wrote in the caption of the photo, which shows Pebbles posing against a bright red background. While Pebbles is adorable, she's also a fierce protector, Teigen shared, explaining that the puppy has helped her 5-year-old daughter, Luna Simone, overcome her fear of "bed monsters." Aimee Nicolas.

"We love this little girl so much already but I will admit, she has definitely taken to John first!!" She added, "I grew up with Basset Hounds so I can't wait for John to see this bouncy, no-bones, Jell-O mold of skin grow into the stubborn logs of love I love so much. Excited for this new little heart to add love to our home."
