"My little family of 3," Hale captioned a series of photos on Instagram of the new puppy bonding with the actress and her beloved dog Elvis.
"Everyone meet Ethel. Thank you Melissa and everyone at @wagmorpets for rescuing her & for all you do to find safe homes for these angels," she wrote, before thanking Kristen Bell for first fostering her new pup. "And big thank you to the best @kristenanniebell for fostering!! We love u🐾♥️"
Matthew Perry's Dog Alfred
Kate Middleton & Prince William's Puppy
Though the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge haven't shared photos of the exact pup they welcomed to their family, PEOPLE confirmed that they adopted a now-eight-month-old cocker spaniel puppy from a litter raised by Kate's brother James Middleton. The puppy joined their crew before the death of their first dog, Lupo, in November.
"The new puppy is adorable and the whole family are besotted," a friend told The Mail on Sunday, which first reported the news.
Camila Alves McConaughey's Dog
Two days after announcing she rescued a white puppy, the star welcomed another four-legged member of her family.
"If you thought...what was I thinking with a 4 month old puppy...well how about with another one that’s 2 months old!! 🐶❤️❤️ Yep, got work cut out for me in the next months! 3 kids, 2 older dogs , 2 pups, 1 cat and my mother in law😉😂 Again, THANK YOU @humanesociety for helping this little guy find his home!! I mean... come on...found on the streets and with this little face he had to come home!" the mom of three shared on Instagram.
Reese Witherspoon's Dog Major
Goldie Hawn's Dog Roy
Meet Roy Hawn Russell! Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell revealed that they added a new furry member to their family to kick off the new year.
The actress announced the exciting news on Jan. 8 with an adorable photo of her cuddling the tiny golden puppy as he slid through her arms.
"Look what Santa rescued for me 🎅🏼 Introducing Roy Hawn Russell ❤️," Hawn captioned the sweet shot, adding the hashtag, "good boy roy."
Roy is now the fifth dog to join the Hawn-Russell household.
Shepard Smith's Dog Lira
When the newscaster's older dog Lucia seemed more "settled" and "less active" than the playful, social pup he was used to seeing, Smith and his partner started to come up with games to keep their pup mentally and physically active.
But now, Smith told PEOPLE on Jan. 11, "she doesn't need us."
That's because Smith and his partner recently welcomed a new puppy named Lira, obtained from the same AKC-recognized breeder Lucia came from. Lira is now in charge of keeping Lucia busy, and has shown to be a perfect fit for the job.
"I want her to be happy, and she is very happy now," Smith said, adding that Lucia has gone into "mom mode" playing with the puppy and showing her the ropes around the house.
Jonah Hill's Dog Fig
"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 on Instagram.
Love Leo Rescue shared their own Instagram post, revealing that 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 captioned their note. "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."
Lindsay Ell's Dog Hendrix
"I guess I am the quintessential 'break up with your boyfriend and then go get a dog' kind of girl now," Ell joked to PEOPLE on Jan. 13.
Her new fur baby Hendrix is a 1-year old Pomeranian, who was rescued from a Louisiana shelter mere days before Christmas.
