Jonah Hill has officially become a dog dad!

The actor, 37, announced the newest addition to the family on Instagram, posting a photo of him with his furry friend — a 3-year-old pitbull named Fig, whom he adopted from Love Leo Rescue in Los Angeles.

"Thank you so much @loveleorescue you gave me a massive gift and I appreciate you and the work you and your foster parent volunteers do," he wrote in the caption.

Following Hill's heartwarming post, Love Leo Rescue shared an adorable photo of Hill embracing his new pup on their own Instagram account and shared more of her backstory.

According to their Instagram, Fig was found at a rural California shelter in December and had been staying with a foster owner while looking for a permanent home.

"Fig is home! Thank you @jonahhill for choosing to #adoptnotshop," the nonprofit's caption reads. "All the cool kids are doing it! This beautiful, extra cuddly, three-year-old pitbull was abandoned at a rural shelter during the holiday season. We are so happy she landed where she did. Clearly it's a love connection."

By the smiles on both of their faces, it seems like Fig has found her forever human!

Hill is reportedly currently working on Adam McKay's latest film for Netflix, Don't Look Up, in which he stars alongside a star-studded cast, including Leonardo DiCaprioAriana GrandeMeryl StreepJennifer Lawrence and Timothée Chalamet.
