Former Disney star Hilary Duff just adopted the cutest little rescue dog and she’s asking for help picking out a name! The mom-of-one took to social media to offer suggestions for what she’ll call the newest addition to her family.
“Guys. My mom needs help,” the 29-year-old wrote in the caption. “Should it be Momo? Should it be Bean? Momo or Bean? Hello! name me please! Woof (that's thanks in dog) and goodnight.”
The adorable little puppy is a black “Chug” which is the name for a mixed breed of a Chihuahua and a Pug — and the results are too cute for words because he has the cute face of a Chihuahua mixed with the floppy ears of a pug.
Hilary adopted the adorable little guy from the LA-based shelter Love Leo Rescue and they revealed that he was previously named Mojito before he found his forever home.
“Another win for [black dogs] everywhere. Mojito has found his forever home… happy in the arms of [Hilary Duff],” they announced on Instagram. “This little [chug] went from 'unwanted' to the best life ever.”

Another win for #blackdogs everywhere. Mojito has found his forever home… happy in the arms of @hilaryduff ❣️ This Little #chug went from "unwanted" — to the best life ever. Thank you @hilaryduff for spreading the #adoptdontshop message and welcoming Mojito into your family. Happy life Mojito!💙 #chuglife
The shelter also thanked Hilary for spreading the message of adopting dogs from shelters instead of shopping for them from breeders, which is something she strongly believes in. Last February — three months after suffering the heartbreaking death of her beloved French bulldog Beau — she adopted his sister Peaches.
It seems like three months is Hilary’s standard mourning period for her pets. Little Momo (or Bean!) made his way into the Duff family the loss of Hilary’s childhood dog, 20-year-old Chihuahua Coco.
“Had to send this amazing little guy up today,” she wrote in a tribute to Coco on Instagram. “He's going to be with his first mom (my grandmother).”
Besides being a proud dog mom, she’s also mom to her five-year-old son Luca Cruz Comrie — whom she shares with her ex-husband Mike Comrie.
