Oprah Winfrey adopts a new puppy

By Super Admin

Washington, Mar 4 (ANI): Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey has got a new member in her family-a puppy-which she and her long-time beau Stedman Graham have adopted recently.

A representative for PAWS Chicago shelter, Lisa Nowak, has confirmed that the couple took home an eight-week-old blonde-coloured cocker spaniel on March 1.

"(The dog) is really cute. Oprah saw her and fell in love with her! She was very excited," Us magazine quoted Nowak as saying.

Although the shelter staff named the pup-one of a litter of six-Amanda, Nowak has no idea whether Winfrey has renamed her.

The talk show host adopted the pup after her two cocker spaniels, Sophie and Solomon, died last year.

Also, in 2007, Winfrey's golden retriever, Gracie, choked to death on a plastic ball.

Still an owner of two golden retrievers, Luke and Layla, the philanthropic host had vowed to adopt her next pooch after dedicating a show to puppy mill horrors.

Oprah has even donated money in Sophie's name for a room at PAWS Chicago.

"She's very supportiveIt's great to have her in," said Nowak. (ANI)
