Awww! We couldn't be more thrilled for him!
Mickey Rourke is one of our FAVORITE celebrity pet-lovers, and was devastated in 2009 when his little Chihuahua friend Loki passed away at the age of 18, but during a press conference in Romania on Thursday, where he is filming Dead in Tombstone, revealed that he had adopted a new dog!
Romanian lawmakers voted to make it legal to euthanize the tens of thousands of stray dogs they have all over the country.
The strays live amongst the people, crossing streets, sleeping on sidewalks and even riding on buses.
Even though most dogs are trying to just get by, same as the people, people have been killed in the past by packs of strays but it's extremely rare.
Animal groups have been calling for sterilization funding it seems the authorities think it'll be easier to just kill the dogs.
An animal rights activist said:
"It is a brutal law which will not resolve the problem of street dogs, but will line the pockets [of mayors from the ruling Democratic Liberal Party.]"
Many strays are tagged with collars, showing they've been sterilized, but they are still susceptible to being picked up, thrown in a shelter for 30 days, then euthanized.
All those poor doggies. Let's hope Romania has a lot of wanna be dog parents.

Move over Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell! There is a new creature strutting the catwalk.
This year, much like in 2009, in Bucharest, Romania, the world Cat Beauty Contest was held.
This is absolutely adorable! Just don't expect these models to be wearing any Gucci or Versace.
