Reese has welcomed another puppy, Major, into her family

Back in November, the Big Little Lies actress welcomed another new puppy, Minnie Pearl, following the sad loss of her long-time family dog.

Last month she delighted fans by posting a cute picture of the tiny French Bulldog cuddling up to her daughter Ava Phillippe's own rescue pup, Border Collie cross Benji.

Reese captioned the picture: "Holiday time with the relatives... Minnie Pearl & @itsbenjitherescue". Her fans were quick to react, taking to the comments to applaud Reese and Ava for adopting and giving the pups a loving home.

One follower wrote: "Yay for rescue pups!!! The ones in need are the best breed possibly the cutest thing I’ve seen this week!!".

Minnie Pearl's arrival followed shortly after the death of Reese's much-loved pet dog, Pepper, who passed away in October

Meanwhile, Ava, 21, adopted Benji in November, introducing the dog to the world with a cute picture of the pair's very first cuddle.

She wrote: "Hey world, I’m Benji! I’m a former stray/rescue dog from Utah who got adopted into an awesome new life in California. This picture is of me and my person, Ava, at @bestfriendsanimalsociety on the day she picked me up from the sanctuary! It was love at first belly rub..." How sweet!
