Less than a year after the passing of her beloved Welsh corgi-terrier mix named Norman, Jennifer Aniston has reportedly found love again by rescuing a dog from an animal shelter in Utah. 


According to sources, the 42-year-old visited the Best Friends Animal Society last month and walked away with a German shepherd mix. As indicated by her holiday cards, she also made a donation to the organization.


The new mutt will no doubt make fast friends with Aniston's other pup, a white German shepherd named Dolly. 


After the death of Norman last May, Aniston had his name tattooed on her ankle in tribute. "He's my baby boy," she told People magazine months before his passing. "Norman goes with me on location — I've got to take Norman." 


If the adoption news holds true, Aniston will become the latest in a recent string of celebrity shelter dog adoptions by the likes of Miley Cryrus and George Clooney. 


"I was looking for a dog because I hadn't had one for a while — and I wanted one that was house-trained. I'm just terrible at house-training dogs," Clooney wrote in an article for Esquire. "So I go online and see Einstein. They had a whole film about him. It was actually really sweet. You see him all beat up and s*it in the shelter, and they show how they cleaned him up. God, I love this dog. So I called and said, 'I like Einstein!'"
