Kristen Bell Adopted A Three-Legged Rescue Dog

Kristen Bell adopted a new dog and he’s only got three legs!

Bell, the star of Frozen and The Good Place among other things, is no stranger to adopting dogs, and now she’s added one more to her family.

She made the announcement on Instagram, revealing that she adopted the little pooch and named him Whiskey.

According to the post, poor Whisky had been hit by a truck, which resulted in him losing his back right leg. She said, “Meet Whiskey! Before he was rescued he got in a fight with a truck and lost (a leg) but who needs four legs anyway?” It certainly seems that Whiskey doesn’t!

The 40-year-old star happily announced that the whole family is getting on great with Whiskey, saying, “He and dog Brother Frank share my lap (see photo evidence), the girls adore him and Dad lovingly tolerates him.”

She ended the post by assuring Whiskey that he wouldn’t need to worry about any trucks again – and welcomed him home. She wrote, “No more truck stops for you, buddy. Welcome home 💗”

The Bell family welcomed Whiskey into their lives around five months after losing their dog, Barbara, to an intestinal infection. Bell previously shared with PEOPLE that she loves and treats her dogs like kids, saying, “To me, they’re just kids I didn’t birth.”

We can only imagine the grief the family experienced in losing Barbara, but hopefully Whiskey’s arrival brings a bit of joy into their lives.

It’s great to see a celebrity actively choosing to adopt over shop, and it’s even neater to see one choose a dog with a disability, like Whiskey!
