Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have officially signed adoption paperwork together. Aren’t they a bit young to be adopting a baby? Of course they are. The couple has adopted a puppy together. Selena and Justin are brand new puppy parents.

According to Hollywood Life, the two adopted a puppy at an animal rescue center in Winnipeg, Canada, together on Friday. A husky cross, this puppy is in for what will undoubtedly be a very good life with parents like these.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are both animal lovers, and Selena has a history of adopting rescue dogs.

“I have five dogs and they’re all rescue dogs. We found two in a parking lot and then we found one our neighbor moved away and left him in the backyard. So that was very sad. And then I shot a movie ‘Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie,’ as we saw a dog in Puerto Rico, he got hit by a car and we took him to the vet and took him home. So they’re all really nice. They’re very spoiled now,” Selena Gomez explains.

A source from the shelter where Justin and Selena adopted said the two were very friendly and down to earth. They were taking the responsibility of adopting a dog very seriously.

“Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were here this afternoon playing with the dogs and puppies for over an hour. They expressed an interest in adopting one of the dogs. They were both very down to earth and friendly,” the source shared.

What do you suppose Justin and Selena will name their new puppy? And with whom will it stay when both of them are on the road?

It will certainly be fun to see photos of Justin and Selena’s adopted dog once they hit the press. Perhaps they’ll name it Mistletoe after Justin’s new CD Under the Mistletoe.

Of course there’s always “Jelena.” That’s what lots of people call Justin and Selena—sort of like “Bennifer” or “Brangelina.”

Justin and Selena’s new puppy could wind up weighing as much as 60 pounds once full grown, so the talented pair had best keep pumping out those records. Their newly adopted “child” could wind up being rather costly to feed!

Congratulations to Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber for becoming adoptive parents!
