Being the animal lover and all-around sweet guy he is, Vinny Guadagnino recently welcomed another new pup into his family, rescuing a Pitbull from a no-kill shelter in New York. The gorgeous gal will be joining Vin’s Staten Island menagerie of four fellow rescue dogs, four cats, one ferret, and a parrot! She’ll definitely have no shortage of playmates.

Vin asked fans to recommend a name for his new pup, and wasted no time including his “#unnamedpitbull” in a snuggle session with girlfriend Melanie Iglesias before making the big decision.

So, what did Vinny name his new puppy?

Vin recently Instagrammed an adorable pic of his new baby girl, announcing that she has a name “inspired by her muscles and Buddhism” and encouraging fans to “meet...Bodhi!” Aww.

Pitbulls have an unfair reputation for being aggressive and mean, and in many states there are laws that discriminate against the breed. We think it’s amazing that Vin not only rescued her, but chose such a Zen moniker to reflect her peaceful demeanor. She may be brawny, but she’s really just a big ball of love.
