New Bachelorette Ashley Hebert's Heart Belongs to ... Her Teacup Yorkie

"When I got home from last season, I adopted a puppy, a teacup Yorkie, and her name is Boo," Hebert tells PEOPLE, noting that the little dog has become her all-time favorite snuggle buddy.
Filming has just started for Hebert's own season, where she select a mate from 25 potential suitors. But the 26-year-old might be wise to tell any serious candidates that they've got some stiff competition back at home in Madawaska, Maine. She says of Boo: "She's the love of my life – right now."
