Meghan Markle Reportedly Wants To Adopt A New Rescue Pooch For Archie To Grow Up With
It would seem that Meghan Markle would agree with the sentiment that dogs are a man's best friend - rumour has it she is planning to adopt a rescue dog for baby son Archie to keep him company as he grows up.
A royal source said: "Rescue dogs are a huge passion for her so the pull to adopt rather than buy a puppy is far stronger."
"Meghan really wants a dog with whom Archie can associate his childhood. She hopes they strike up an incredible bond and Archie can make plenty of memories," the source added.
Before moving to the UK permanently, Meghan had two rescue dogs back home: a beagle named Guy and a labrador/shepherd mix named Bogart. Sadly only Guy made it across the pond with his mum as Bogart was deemed too old to make the move.
Seemingly missing her canine brood, it was reported in October last year that the royal couple had welcomed a new puppy into their home when on a trip to Sussex, Meghan was gifted with a drawing of her beagle, Guy. On receiving the portrait, Prince Harry responded: "No-one's even seen our dog!"
Meghan then replied: "I know, and they keep getting her name wrong!"

An avid dog lover, Meghan is patron of animal welfare charity Mayhew, so we're sure she'll have no issues getting hold of the right dog for Archie when the times comes.
The privileged pup will be the latest in a long line of royal pets, with The Queen owning more than 30 corgis since she was 18. Kate and Wills also have a cocker spaniel named Lupo, while Camilla has two rescue dogs called Bluebell and Beth.
