Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Adopt Shelter Pup

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are proud parents.

Put down your pitchforks, Beliebers. There’s nothing taking up residence in Selena’s uterus (Not that we’re aware of anyway…) — but the teen lovers are now sharing responsibility for Baylor, a pint-sized husky mix they fell head over heels for after a visit to D’Arcy’s Animal Rescue Centre in Winnipeg over the weekend. Talk about a case of real-life puppy love! Selena, who is currently on tour and played in the Canadian city over the weekend, already owns five rescue dogs. Her beau Justin is also a pooch owner and has lent his famous face to a PETA campaign encouraging pet lovers to adopt homeless animals.

Selena, 19, was able to take Baylor home after going through a routine screening process.

“They spent a lot of time with the puppies,” D’Arcy Johnston, the rescue’s chief executive officer, tells PEOPLE. “I was told that [Gomez] was missing the dogs that she has at home.”

Johnson adds:

“I wasn’t expecting her to adopt a dog while she was on tour and has a busy schedule. Baylor probably would have had a bad life or a very short life, but he got rescued and brought to our shelter and is now going to live a very good life.”

Yay Baylor!

The loved-up pair celebrated the new addition to the family by getting lusty at a hockey match later that afternoon. Justin and Selena were spied snuggling and smooching as they, ahem, “watched” the game from a sky box.
