Last May Jennifer Aniston was heartbroken after her much loved companion Norman passed away. The actress even got a tattoo of his name etched on her right foot.

It seems now the star has adopted a dog to follow in the well-loved paw prints of Norman. Aniston reportedly traveled to Best Friends Animal Society in December to find a new addition to her family. No news on the name or breed of the pup, but it will be joining her other dog Dolly, a German Shepherd mix.

We reported back in December that Aniston told her friends and family in her Christmas card that donations were being made to charity. Knowing now that she was adopting a pooch from Best Friends, it makes sense that they were on the receiving end of her generosity.

Congrats to Jennifer and her new family member, one of the luckiest dogs in the country.

    High five to Aniston for setting a great example, especially for her young admirers, that adopting is the way to go! I read that both Dolly and Norman are also adopted. Way to go Jennifer!
