Chrissy Teigen and John Legend divide fans with the way they are training their rescue puppy

The celebrity couple have adopted a rescue puppy named Petey – and he's adorable!

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have recently adopted a rescue puppy named Petey and have been sharing some seriously cute photos of their children Luna and Miles helping him settle into his new home. But after Chrissy uploaded a picture on Instagram of Luna cuddling Petey as he slept on the sofa, she admitted in the caption that she had messed up as her puppy was yet to sleep in its crate. Fans were quick to share their opinions on whether or not Petey should be sleeping in one, with one writing: "They don't need one," while another posted: "I've never crated any of my dogs. And neither have they ever had any accident in the house." However, others were quick to encourage Chrissy not to give up on the crate training. "Train your pup to use the crate, it really does help," one wrote, while another added: "Crate training Is hard but worth it."

Little Petey has bought so much joy into the Teigen household since they bought him home, and Luna has been especially pleased with the new arrival. In another hilarious video, the little girl was heard calling her dad by his first name as she asked him if he wanted to hold the dog. In the footage posted on Chrissy's Instagram account, the three-year-old asked him: "John, would you like to hold her?" John appeared stunned as Chrissy laughed, and quickly told his daughter: "John? I'm not John. I'm your dad."
