Say hello to yet another furry member of the Caps fam! Meet Halle - Tom Wilson's adorable new puppy.

Tom's girlfriend, Taylor Pischke, broke the news about the adoption on Tuesday with a cute family photo of the three of them on Instagram.

"We've been wanting a dog forever but just have been too busy," Tom said. "But decided it was time to just take the plunge because our schedules are more permitting." 

In the past, Taylor and Tom have fostered puppies and have taken an interest into the Caps involvement with rescues such as Homeward Trails Rescue Center. 

Halle is an eight week old lab mix that they adopted from Wolf Trap Animal Rescue who rescued Halle from a bad situation.

"Taylor is a huge advocate for dogs as has done a lot of volunteering at humane societies, shelters, etc.," Tom said. "Halle was a dog that definitely needed rescuing coming from a pretty bad situation."

Taylor revealed that Halle's favorite things are pine cones and digging holes (classic puppy).

Welcome little Halle!
