Before getting engaged to the man of her dreams on The Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert had to make sure he met the family. And New York construction manager J.P. Rosenbaum did – except for one important member: Hebert’s teacup Yorkie, Boo.

Hebert’s fiancé finally spent time with Boo earlier this month when the couple traveled to her hometown of Madawaska, Maine. And, to no one’s surprise, the two hit it off right away.

“J.P. loved Boo,” Hebert told PEOPLE at Sunday’s Boy Meets Girl presentation during New York Fashion Week. “They’re good. They will be best friends.”
