"Welcome Home Teddy. Last night we rescued a dog. But today I'm not sure who has rescued who. We miss you so much Theo. I hope you're looking down from heaven smiling, knowing that peanut will no longer be so very lonely and that a doggy who really needed a family now has one. To the moon and back, always," she wrote alongside several pictures of Teddy and her other pet dog, Peanut, together as well as her son Rex.

Stacey revealed the new dog had fitted in perfectly just a day after being rescued

"As soon as we got home it was like he'd never not been here," she wrote alongside an adorable video of the two dogs playing on the sofa. "He played with Peanut all night and they've followed each other around like shadows all day."

She added: "He's settled in so beautifully; we all love him so much. And Peanut keeps giving extra kisses like he's saying 'thanks for the friend guys'.

Peanut and Teddy have become best friends less than 24 hours after meeting each other

Teddy's adoption comes just days after Stacey voiced her concern about her dachshund Peanut, who seemed sad since the family's other pet dog, Theo, had passed away.

Stacey took to Instagram to share a photo of little Peanut snuggled up with his head on Stacey's hand – and she revealed that she felt "bad" about considering getting the pup a new companion.

She captioned the image: "Why does my heart feel like [by] looking into a friend for Peanut I'm forgetting about Theo. I really want to make Peanut his bouncy happy playful self again and we have room in our hearts and home for another fur baby but I just feel so bad about it."

The 32-year-old went on: "Just wondering if anyone in the same boat felt this way? And so curious to know what you did? Love you lots, thank you in advance."
