These “Chugs” came from an illicit affair between a Pug and a Chihuahua.

Hilary Duff is no stranger to pets. She’s had pets since she was little, and she is apparently not stopping. She has a Bernese Mountain Dog named Dubois (Dubie), a French Bulldog named Peaches, a Bulldog named Bella, and a Chihuahua named CoCo! In addition to the pets, she has her five-year-old son Luca Comrie.

When Love Leo Rescue discovered an unwanted litter of Chugs, Hilary Duff adopted one! LLR rescued the puppies from the border of Mexico and named them Mojito, Daiquiri, Mimosa, and Piña Colada. Mojito, or MoMo, was the only boy of the litter. Since black dogs don’t photograph as well as lighter-furred pups, the rescue was worried that no one would adopt these little ones.

But Hilary Duff came to the rescue and adopted little Momo! He went from being “unwanted” to loved at Hilary Duff’s home!

We don’t think Momo is unphotogenic. He looks so precious and cuddly. He probably fits comfortably in one arm!

Love Leo Rescue thanked Hilary Duff for encouraging everyone to #AdoptNotShop.

Now that Momo’s home, he spends a lot of time on Hilary! They cuddle a lot, as puppy and mom should, and he gets showered with love.

He even stays on Hilary when she’s posing for Instagram in her Marc Jacobs dress! Puppies don’t care about your designer names!

But when they’re just chilling, it’s back to the lap for Momo. It’s an ideal spot because it keeps him warm and toasty!

Momo: “Why aren’t you petting me?? ?”

Momo got his perma-pout face from his Pug momma and it shows!

He doesn’t mean to look this sad all the time, it’s just his face. This picture would probably be a great cover for his autobiography!

Momo probably doesn’t know that he was unwanted when he was born. All he knows in his new home is that he’s loved and will be loved forever!
