Lea Michele has a new "little love" in her life.

As the Glee actress slowly moves on from the pain of losing boyfriend and costar Cory Monteith in July, she has adopted an 8-year-old pooch named Pearl.

"Today I would like to introduce you to Pearl. She's 8 years old and is my new little love … Welcome Pearl!" she wrote Tuesday, sharing a photo of the caramel-colored pooch, who looks like a Pomeranian.

The proud new dog mom – whose on-screen alter ego gave Monteith a fond farewell in the show's tribute episode last Thursday – posted two more shots of the pup within hours of sharing her news.



"Pearls first photo shoot!" Michele wrote alongside a snapshot of the dog posing with her at what appeared to be a professional photo shoot.

Michele, 27, has a big heart for needy animals. She once saved a litter of six kittens she found wandering around the Paramount studios lot where Glee films. She adopted two of them, cats Claude and Sheila, and helped match the others with costar Heather Morris and one of the show's directors.
