Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca recently welcomed a smiling, furry friend to their New York apartment. The couple adopted a pitbull/mastiff mix named Bobbi-Ricki Zohn Morasca.

After 10 years together (they met on “Survivor” and are both winners), the two have definitely been through quite a whirlwind of ups and downs. Zohn has been battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma for some time now and continues to power through. Maybe Bobbi-Ricki, 5, is just what the doctor ordered.

“Our lives have been very intense and serious the last year with Ethan’s illness, and Bobbi has brought lightness and humor into our house,” Morasca told PEOPLE. “We constantly find ourselves laughing hysterically at her when she tries to talk to us with her half-bark, half-howl voice. She has brought a ton of laughter and love . . . we all are benefiting greatly from it.”

Morasca has loved dogs for “forever,” but Zohn has never thought of himself as a dog lover. However, he has welcomed Bobbi-Ricki with open arms. When searching for a dog, Morasca knew it exactly what she wanted.

“I love big dogs, and specifically asked for a pit bull from the shelter because I wanted to show people that they are not mean, cruel and scary dogs,” Morasca revealed. She first fostered the pup through the Dog Habitat Rescue of Brooklyn, N.Y.

“It is rewarding beyond words to rescue a dog from the shelter and have that dog become part of your family,” she continued. “And this lovable pit bull should be the mascot of all pit bulls because she is a dream come true.”

It seems that Bobbi-Ricki has really brought the couple together.

“Now we take nightly walks with her. We just talk and enjoy each other’s company – and Bobbi’s company – [without] cell phones, which we did not do before,” Morasca added. “Ethan and I are so happy and we could not envision our lives without her.”
