Lena Dunham, the mind behind the hit HBO show “Girls”, has a new guy in her life. A twelve pound scruffy and sweet looking dog now named Lamby Dunham.

The writer and actress posted a few photos on Instagram of her new companion. She also wrote, “And because no day is stressful enough on its own, meet Lamby Dunham. He comes from BARC (@barcanimals) and @lauriesimmons and I sprung him this afternoon”.

Thankfully for Dunham, studies show that sharing your home with a companion animal can help reduce stress levels.

The writer also joins a large community of other celebrity animal rescuers like Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Robert Downey Jr., Jane Lynch, Emma Stone and so many more.
