“TODAY Show” coanchor Al Roker has a new girl in his life. A 10-week-old rescue pup named Pepper who he brought home from the Main Line Animal Rescue.

Roker tweeted, “Say hello Pepper, our newest Roker. She’s a rescue pup from Main Line Animal Rescue.” He continued, “This is the kind of dog I used to make fun of … not a real dog. And swore we wouldn’t get one. God works in mysterious ways.”

We’re not sure what he means by a “real” dog, but perhaps he had always imagined himself with a bigger canine. No matter what the size, based on these pictures he posted, we’re pretty sure that Pepper has stolen his heart.
