When the newscaster's older dog Lucia seemed more "settled" and "less active" than the playful, social pup he was used to seeing, Smith and his partner started to come up with games to keep their pup mentally and physically active.

But now, Smith was quoted on Jan. 11 saying, "she doesn't need us."

That's because Smith and his partner recently welcomed a new puppy named Lira, obtained from the same AKC-recognized breeder Lucia came from. Lira is now in charge of keeping Lucia busy, and has shown to be a perfect fit for the job.

"I want her to be happy, and she is very happy now," Smith said, adding that Lucia has gone into "mom mode" playing with the puppy and showing her the ropes around the house.

He and his partner are the proud parents to Lucia, a 4-year-old Lagotto Romagnolo that the couple got when she was just 9 weeks old. Throughout the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the dog has been a source of "unconditional love" and "joy" for Smith, 56, and has also created some new challenges for the lifelong animal lover.

The actor is a proud new dog dad to pitbull Fig, whom he adopted from in L.A.

"Thank you so much @loveleorescue you gave me a massive gift and I appreciate you and the work you and your foster parent volunteers do," he wrote on Instagram.

Love Leo Rescue shared their own Instagram post, revealing that Fig was found at a rural California shelter in December and had been staying with a foster owner while looking for a permanent home.

"Fig is home! Thank you @jonahhill for choosing to #adoptnotshop," the nonprofit captioned their note. "All the cool kids are doing it! This beautiful, extra cuddly, three-year-old pitbull was abandoned at a rural shelter during the holiday season. We are so happy she landed where she did. Clearly it's a love connection."

Fig also has a page on the rescue's website, and apparently calling her "cuddly" is an understatement! "The volunteers noticed how sweet and affectionate she was the moment they entered her kennel," the page reads. "She loves to sit with her head on her persons shoulder and be close to them."

We can't wait to see more photos of Fig in the future and to watch her and Jonah's dog-human bond grow.

"Going through a breakup over the holidays and not being able to go home to see my family, I just knew that waking up Christmas morning was going to be so hard," remembers Ell, who recently scored her second No. 1 at Canadian country radio with her hit single "wAnt me back." "So I literally woke up one morning and said a little prayer that, 'If I am meant to have a dog, please send the right dog into my life.' Hours later, the girl that I had been in touch with from the shelter texted me about Hendrix."
