Earlier this year, actress Kaley Cuoco and husband Karl Cook experienced a devastating loss. Their beloved rescue pit bull, Norman, passed away and left a hole in their hearts.
As anyone who has lost a beloved pet knows, one of the best ways to heal is to open your heart and home to another rescue.
And that is exactly what the couple did.
The longtime animal lovers recently fell in love with a senior rescue mutt named Larry. It was love at first sight. Cuoco took to Instagram to introduce the newest member of the family.
“When you know you know! Welcome to the family, Larry! He’s a 9 year old ginormous mastiff chunk mutt of love and we are obsessed,” she wrote.
She included photos of the adorable pup, which showed he is already making himself at home.
He doesn’t seem to mind all of the snuggles and kisses from his new family. He’s just thrilled to be in a loving home.
