About the Instagram post:
Selena Gomez has a new best friend, and fans love him like a love song. The former Disney channel star introduced her fluffy pup, Winnie, in an Instagram photo on Wednesday. While Selena Gomez has seemingly been the dog mom to Winne for a while, this is the first time she’s shared a snap on her feed.
Gomez has been vocal about the importance of her health, from being diagnosed with autoimmune disease Lupus to a variety of mental health roadblocks, like anxiety and depression. She’s considered a loud advocate for self-care and mental health treatment. It’s unclear if Winnie is an emotional support dog, or aids Gomez’s positive lifestyle, but regardless of her intention with pet ownership, dogs are proven to reduce stress levels and increase happiness.
The photo Gomez shared shows the singer lounging on a sectional sofa with Winnie, who also seems to be asleep. It’s unclear how old, or what kind of dog, Winnie is, but it’s safe to say the dog is new in Gomez’s life.
Gomez was also pictured with Winnie and friend Anna Collins on Collins’ Instagram page in June. In the photo, Winnie looks very small. The photo also calls both women “dog moms.” Fans and celebrities alike seem to be in love with Winnie.
Gomez’s recent collaboration, Benny Blanco, left a comment that read “aww” among other celebrities like Austin Mahone, and even Doug The Pug. Fans were also smitten with Gomez’s fur baby and thanked her for a glimpse into her home life.
The singer is typically private on Instagram, though at one point, she was the most followed on the whole platform. Since, she has been dethroned by Christiano Ronaldo and Ariana Grande, but is still third on the list, according to the Instagram followers.
