On Monday, the former Ricki Lake host, 53, shared several photos on Instagram of her new rescue dog named Dolly, including one snap of husband Ross Burningham kissing the pup's head and another of the dog resting against her leg.
"Dolly photo dump," she captioned the post.
On Dolly's own Instagram account, the dog shared an adorable update about her new home.
The new pet comes after Lake announced in April that Mama — her dog of six years — died, explaining that she felt "gutted" following the loss.
"I don't have much to say at this time other than thank you to everyone who reached out, said a prayer, lit a candle. It was not for naught. It meant the world to me," Lake shared on Instagram.

"I am eternally grateful to my dearest friends, beloved husband, and greatest vet who held the sacred container for mama to cross the rainbow bridge," she added. "We were at home in my bed, and she went peacefully."
Before Mama's passing, the Hairspray star asked for prayers for her "beloved companion," who was then in the hospital and in "critical" condition. "Anyone who knows me knows that Mama is my entire world. I am broken at the thought of losing her," she wrote.
Mama was diagnosed with Immune-Mediated Thrombocytopenia — an autoimmune disease that causes a decrease in the number of blood platelets circulating in the blood of dogs, according to VCA Animal Hospitals.
