A few days ago, news broke that Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are no longer together after a year of dating. While Gomez is coping with the breakup by leaning on ex Justin Bieber for support, the “Starboy” singer took a rather different approach.

On Thursday, The Weeknd revealed on Instagram that he now has a brand-new puppy. “Handsome devil,” the singer said of his adorable Doberman Pinscher while it was sitting waiting to go on a walk.

At this point, still no word on the name of his seet pup, but fingers crossed we find out more about his canine pal in the coming weeks. However, speaking of dogs, we can’t help but wonder what happened to the one he and Gomez adopted together...?
