“Girls” star Allison Williams may get a lot of great perks with her hit show, but also has to make some compromises. Being such a busy actress, and despite desperately wanting one, she doesn’t have enough time to care for a dog.

Thankfully, when Williams eventually is able to balance her work and personal life, she’s going to choose to rescue a dog instead of buying one from a pet store. She told Teen Vogue, “For my whole childhood, we had a white wolflike rescue dog named Lucy. I want to adopt a big dog so badly, but it’s not fair to work my hours, live in Manhattan, and have a dog like that. Someday … that’s what I keep telling myself!”

Perhaps for now she’ll just have to hang with her costar Lena Dunham’s rescue dog. While not a big dog, Dunham’s pooch, who came from BARC in Brooklyn, probably has enough kisses to go around to all the girls. Dunham said about her adoption, “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”.

One day, Allison! And that dog will be incredibly thankful for your decision to adopt instead of buy.
