Maria Menounos showed her affection for an adorable little dog as she carried the perky pooch in her arms around the set of Extra.
Even though she was impeccably dressed in a red frock and matching leather vest top, Maria Menounos brushed off any concern about getting dog hair on her outfit and draped the puppy over her shoulders.
The television presenter was spotted at The Grove shopping centre on Tuesday, holding her cute canine companion and riding to the set with it on a golf cart.
The little dog was also dressed to impress in a pink vest and sparkling identification tag shaped like a bone.
Maria Menounos, 34, has several pet pooches and is known to rescue abandoned animals that she finds on the streets.
On 19 October Maria Menounos tweeted a picture of a German Shepherd with the caption: “What is god trying to tell me by sending me all these dogs?
“Just found another on the streets but this one has tags thank god!left vmail for owner.”
In a recent interview with Modern Dog Magazine, Maria Menounos discussed her love of dogs.
“Right now, the four I have at home are Baby and Benjamin – they’re Bichons. I have Athena, a Poodle. And Apollo is a white German Shepherd.
“He was thrown out of a moving car in front of the shelter. It was tragic.”
She added: “Dogs bring us so much joy every single day. They deserve to be treated well. Right now, with the economy, there are so many beautiful dogs being turned in [to shelters] because families are struggling.”
Maria Menounos also said she volunteers for the Humane Society.
