Jennifer Aniston Is 'Close' To Getting A New Dog After Heartbreaking Loss

It's been just over four months since Jennifer Aniston and ex-husband Justin Theroux lost their German Shepherd dog, Dolly. The two actors grieved hard for their beloved pup, and the Leftovers actor shared a heartwarming send-off post to the dog on his Instagram page after her death.

Now Jennifer is considering getting another dog, according to People. It's not as easy as going to the shelter and picking one out though, at least not for the Friends actress.

"Oh God, I've come so close," Jennifer told People of getting another dog this week. Jennifer is one of the publications "People of the Year," alongside Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, and Michelle Obama.

"And my friend Ellen DeGeneres, as you know, loves nothing more than to bombard me with extremely heartbreaking photographs of animals that need homes," she went on. "And by the way, if I could have a llama, a pig, an alpaca, sheep, goats, I would. But I have to be very sensitive to [her dogs] Clyde and Sophie because it's all about whether they are going to be happy."

Ellen is a major advocate for animal rights and a known animal lover, so it's no surprise that she's pushing her best friend to get another dog as soon as possible.

The passing of Jennifer and Justin's dog made national news when it happened back in June, and fans have been wishing the pair an easy grieving process, as many have shared their own stories of losing a dog.

Unfortunately, Jennifer didn't take him up on his offer, but it looks like she will be welcoming a new dog into her home in the near future, if Ellen has anything to say about it.
