With sister Emily expecting a baby, it seems Zooey Deschanel is ready to expand her family as well – with a new pet.

"I want a dog so much," the actress, who's married to Death Cab for Cutie musician Ben Gibbard, said on the Late Late Show Friday.

But after host Craig Ferguson suggested a husky, Deschanel shot him down, saying, "I want something cute, to hang out with and hug."

Lucky for the brunette beauty, who grew up with a Wheaten terrier, Ferguson had another animal in mind – his own Jack Russell. Would Deschanel take him up on his offer? Check out the video to find out!
