Shay Mitchell has a new love. The lucky guy has four paws and was recently homeless.

“Adopted a dog from the shelter today and I could not be more excited!

Please [spay] & neuter your animals everyone and ADOPT! #piccomingsoon,” the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ actress posted on her Twitter account on Sunday.

Mitchell followed through with the promise shortly after posting a picture of her and Angel, a German Sheppard mix. She also took the opportunity to send a message to her four million followers on Instagr.am about the importance of adopting.

“Please welcome my new addition, ‘Angel’ ???? … Couldn’t be more excited and happy that I have a new best friend but I also saved a life,” she posted. “Adopting is always a better choice! There are too many strays that need a good home. Check out your local shelters and maybe you will fall in love too!”

From the looks of her photos, Mitchell is giving Angel the life he always wished for. Later that day she posted another photo of the happy dog laying on the grass and on Wednesday a picture of herself cuddling the dog with the message “Angels bed is big enough for the two of us…”
