While Chewie has been in the family for a while, Ripa revealed in March that the family decided to adopt Lena, a Maltese/Shih Tzu that first appeared on the talk show as part of their Happy Pets segment. Ripa told Ryan Seacrest on an episode of Live, “The Consueloses have made a decision to adopt Lena."
She also stated that her biggest fear was Lena not getting along with her other dog. Luckily, the two dogs instantly hit it off and when Ripa checked to see how Lena was doing in her crate, Chewie was “outside the crate, sitting next to her with their noses together.” And even though the pups have hit a few bumps in the road along the way, these two look very happy to have their dad home.
Hey, sometimes rules are meant to be broken.
