When I saw the headline with “Kaley Cuoco” and “addition to her family” I thought she and hubby Tom Pelphrey had announced they’re expecting since they have been vocal about wanting to expand their family. But they’re both mega animal lovers and activists, so in this instance the happy news was about Red, the senior dog Kaley and Tom have adopted. Red was being fostered by a “friend of a friend,” and Kaley was just helping find him a forever home. Well, she did succeed in that endeavor!
Kaley Cuoco has happily welcomed a new member to her pack.
On Thursday, the animal lover and activist revealed she and partner Tom Pelphrey are now parents to a senior dog named Red. Cuoco explained in an Instagram post that she had initially been working to get Red adopted after he was found walking on the streets and was later fostered by a friend of a friend. The actress paid to get his teeth fixed and for his veterinary care. Ultimately, she took him in herself. “We ended up finding him a home,” she said in her Instagram video. “It was just our home.”
It sounds like Red has adjusted well to joining Cuoco’s family — which includes an array of animals — as she noted he’s been running around with her other dogs, loves cuddling on the couch, and has let her kiss him on the head after being afraid to be touched near his face.
“I knew Red belonged in our pack, I was just in denial for a while. At last here we are, and we love our newest senior family member, our expert drooler. 👅,” she wrote on Instagram. “He also doubles as my heating blanket every night — he always sleeps right next to me. Isn’t he so sweet.”
As she put it in her video, “Red is super special. I somehow knew he was going to end up with us.”
Things I’ve learned about Red from Kaley’s full Instagram video below: He is a chestnut-colored chihuahua; he has no teeth which makes for a distinctive bark; he has that fabulous feature where his tongue hangs out on the side of his mouth; he seems to be enjoying his new pack of what appear to be mostly other chihuahuas, although he prefers snuggling with a human. And he is just friggin’ adorable! Adopting a senior pet is a really beautiful thing to do. Lucky turn up that Red is liking his new canine family. Kaley acknowledged the mayhem of her household, saying “Once you have 2 dogs, what’s three? Or four? Or five?” To which my answer is, a lot more! But Kaley and Tom have the hearts and the means to take in multiple rescues, so it’s wonderful that they are giving these pups (and other animals!) new homes. Congratulations on the latest addition to the Cuoco-Pelphrey household!
