Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting has a new addition in her life—an adorable dog named Ruby!
The Big Bang Theory star and animal lover filmed a segment with shelter dogs—and it must’ve been love at first sight with the gorgeous canine, because she immediately returned to adopt Ruby!
“This little one starred in our [E! News] segment and I couldn’t get her off my mind,” the 28-year-old wrote on Instagram with the picture above.
“So I went back and got her. Welcome to the family Miss Ruby! Thank you West Valley Animal Shelter for keeping her safe!”
Kaley went on to explain Ruby isn’t actually a puppy, and took the opportunity to advocate for the adoption of older dogs.
“Many of you have asked about Ruby’s story so here’s what we know,” she captioned a shot of the newest family member sleeping soundly.
“She is not a puppy! She is around 5 or 6 years old. [She] had puppies, then was left on the side of the road. West Hills Animal Shelter has had her for the last little while… until I showed up!
“We all love puppies! Especially me! But if you can, rescue a slightly older dog. They get the short end of the stick and end up living out their older days in shelters.
“Ruby is a dream. Calm, quiet and sweeter than candy. We [love] her forever.”

In addition to Ruby, Kaley and her new husband, Ryan Sweeting, are proud parents to three rescued Pit Bulls—Norman, Shirley and Loretta, who seem to have no problem adjusting to their newest family member!
Right now she may only be adding fury babies to her brood—but hopefully that will change soon, as the gorgeous blonde admits she’s looking forward to being a mom and sharing her passion for her pets!
“I can’t wait actually to have kids surrounded by all the dogs at our house, too, and the horses and raise them with the animals and [show them] how to treat them correctly,” Kaley recently gushed to Glamour.
“It starts from the very beginning with puppies and with babies and showing them how they need to be treated.”
