Lauren Conrad has adopted a rescue puppy.

The former 'Hills' star went to the animal shelter to see the adorable dogs but ended up taking one home to live with her other rescue dog, four-year-old Chloe, after she bonded with him.

Sharing a picture of the pooch, who she has named Fitz, on Instagram, Lauren wrote: "Never go to the animal shelter 'just to look,'. It never ends that way (sic)."

Posting several more photographs of the latest addition to her family, Lauren added: "All I want to do is take pictures of this little cutie."

Despite her busy career as a designer and author, Lauren will have plenty of time to spend with her dogs as she recently revealed she loves nothing more than a night in at home knitting.

She said: "I make scarves for everybody, it's like a new addiction of mine.

"All I know how to do is make a scarf, but I really enjoy knitting so I can't like give those things away. I keep making people wear them and nobody even really wants them anymore."
