Sorry, But We Need a Moment to Gush About Zooey Deschanel’s Rescue Dog Sisters

It feels like this could have happened on an episode of New Girl, tbh. 

Kooky actor, twee songwriter, and general eccentric Zooey Deschanel is well-known for her animal advocacy. The pug enthusiast has hosted soirees for the Humane Society and spoke out against product testing on animals. So it’s no surprise that she would rescue from a shelter—but what did surprise her was that she wound up with not one, but two dogs.

When Zooey went to The Bill Foundation to adopt, she fell in love with a mutt named Dot. But it turned out that Dot had a sister named Zelda. Zooey told the story on Ellen: “When Annie from the Bill Foundation went to go get Zelda…she saw another dog that looked very much like her shaking in the corner of another cage. When she took [the other dog] Dot out of the cage, they saw each other and it was like sisters being reunited and they started licking each other’s faces. So they said, ‘We can’t separate them again.’”

Accidentally adopting twinsie puppers feels like peak Zooey, and we love her all the more for it. So join us, won’t you, as we celebrate the Deschanel doggos in our Instagram retrospective of Zooey, Zelda, and Dot:
