"Riva will not be happy," another joked, with a third asking: "So adorable!! How'd you resist?" and one simply calling him: "Adorable!"

Many of her followers questioned why the dog didn't go to her colleague George Stephanopoulos like he'd said on the show after Jagger made an on-air appearance on GMA.

"Awe, didn't George adopt him?" one of her fans asked, with another also saying: "I thought George wanted to adopt Jagger! I guess Ali said no lol."

After Jagger was brought out to the GMA hosts, in honor of August being Dog-ust on the show, George quickly fell in love and began cuddling with him.

"I can look at him, I felt it," he told them, with Michael joking: "Oh, he felt it, and it's only day two!"
