Justin Bieber and Selena adopt

2011-10-26 10:19
Los Angeles - Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have adopted a dog together.

The couple - who have been dating since March - visited Winnipeg animal rescue centre D'Arcy's ARC and fell in love with a 10-week-old husky puppy that they later named Baylor.

Selena - who owns five rescue dogs and has publicly spoken out in support of animal rescue shelters in the past - decided to adopt the pet pooch after missing her canine companions while she was away on tour.

D'Arcy Johnston, chief executive officer of the rescue centre, told People: "They spent a lot of time with the puppies. I was told that Selena was missing the dogs that she has at home.

"I wasn't expecting her to adopt a dog while she was on tour and has a busy schedule. Baylor probably would have had a bad life or a very short life. But he got rescued and brought to our shelter and is now going to live a very good life."

More star adoptions

However, Justin and Selena aren't the first stars to adopt a pet pooch, as Twilight star Robert Pattinson recently took on a four-legged friend to keep him company while he's on location.

Robert said: "I know it's sad. A lot of actors have a bunch of people who kind of just go up and stay with them for like two months, like an entourage. But my friends, their egos are too big.

"They'd be like, 'I'm not part of your entourage. I'll stay in a free hotel for a bit if it's in New York or Los Angeles but I'm not going to come out to some random town in the sticks.

"That's kind of why I adopted the puppy. It's from a shelter and he was going to be put down. I only got him two or three days ago."
