There’s a brand new love connection on Glee!

Mark Salling, who plays the lovable miscreant Puck, recently introduced “the new love of my life, Noah Saw Salling,” on Twitter, posting a photo of the adorable pup asleep on his chest.

The Australian cattle dog has already made the rounds on the FOX show’s set, having met director Adam Shankman and Salling’s costar Lea Michele.

“I helped Mark pick the name,” Michele shared on Twitter. Salling’s character is formally known as Noah Puckerman, and Salling’s nickname is Saw, so there’s personal significance in both of the pup’s names.

We can’t wait to see more of Noah’s adventures with his new owner!
