New Bachelorette Ashley Hebert's Heart Belongs to ... Her Teacup Yorkie

Ashley Hebert left season 15 of The Bachelor in tears after Brad Womack told her she wasn't the girl for him. But the once brokenhearted dental student, and newly announced star of The Bachelorette, quickly found comfort in hugs from another.

"When I got home from last season, I adopted a puppy, a teacup Yorkie, and her name is Boo," Hebert tells PEOPLE, noting that the little dog has become her all-time favorite snuggle buddy.
