X Factor Champ Melanie Amaro Gets New Puppy

01/18/2012 at 04:00 PM EST



X Factor winner Melanie Amaro has a lot to look forward in 2012: a new album, her first Super Bowl ad, and the home she plans to buy.

But the most exciting of milestone of all? Potting training her new puppy!

The singer's 12-week-old Maltese, T.K., is still finding his way to the pee pad. Amaro tells PEOPLE, "He's like, 'No, I'm going to pee over here on this floor.'"



Despite the growing pains, the "playful and loving" pooch she welcomed late last year is a "really good puppy" who has already learned the meaning of the ever important word "no."

See Amaro talk about her fluffy new companion in our exclusive PEOPLE interview!
