Three’s company for The Bachelorette‘s Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth.

The couple got engaged on the season finale of the show seven months ago and are now settling into their new Nashville home, which includes a furry roommate. Turns out Booth is a package deal, you get married to him you are also getting married to his dog Tucker.

Booth got the golden retriever as a puppy eight years ago after graduating college and the pair have been inseparable ever since.

Tucker is a welcomed addition for dog lover Bristowe, who remembers hearing about the pooch from her Bachelorette dates with Booth.

The trio is loving their new life together, which is good because Tucker isn’t one for alone time.

“He learned how to open the door, so Shawn goes to the bathroom without him and he’ll go open the door and walk in,” Bristowe told PEOPLE in a interview for this week’s issue.
