For newly single Zoë Saldana, it seems like dogs really are a woman’s best friend.

After calling it quits with on-and-off-again beau Bradley Cooper just before New Year’s, the actress stepped out Tuesday near her Silver Lake, Calif., home to walk her new rescue pooch, Mugsy.

“She’s adorable and super smart,” Saldana Tweeted on Dec. 12 after bringing home the wiry-haired pup, whom a friend helped name.

While Cooper may no longer be apart of the star’s life, her decision to adopt Mugsy could have been influenced by the actor. In November, Saldana scored some bonding time with her then-boyfriend’s beloved chow/retriever mix Charlotte on a Thanksgiving day dog walk.
