    Reese Witherspoon's family have welcomed another dog into their household

    The 'Legally Blonde' actress was left devastated last week when her beloved French bulldog Pepper passed away, but on the same day, her 21-year-old daughter Ava - who she has with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe - brought home "sweet boy" Benji and they couldn't be happier with the new addition


    Ava shared a photo of Benji on Instagram and wrote: "The day we lost Pepper just so happened to be the day I brought this sweet boy home with me.

    "This is Benji! He's from the @bestfriendsanimalsociety sanctuary in Southern Utah and is a dream of a rescue dog. He loves to cuddle and meet new friends (human & canine) and has quickly adjusted to life in his new home environment.(sic)"

    And Ava "cannot wait" to see how Benji grows and develops.

    She added: "He enjoys squeaky toys, outdoor adventures, and anything he is allowed (or not allowed) to eat.

    "He is the happiest, smartest boy, and I'm so grateful to be his person. I cannot wait for him to perfect his manners and become his full, goofy self as time goes on!(sic)"

    Ava went on to thank the Best Friends Animal Society sanctuary for "all the work they do to save the lives of animals big and small and for helping me and Benji find each other."

    Reese - who also has Deacon, 17, with Ryan and Tennessee, eight, with her spouse Jim Toth - recently admitted she is "heartbroken" over Pepper's death.

    She wrote on Instagram: "Our sweet Pepper passed away yesterday. My goodness, she was such a loyal and devoted family member. I am so heart broken, but I am also deeply grateful for all the love and comfort she brought our famil.

    "Now she's in dog heaven where all great pets go. Chasing tennis balls, running through open fields of wild flowers and being the Queen that she is. That's what I believe. We will always love you, Pepper."
