(Yahoo!) - Lea Michele has a furry new love.
On Tuesday, the "Glee" star showed off a few photos of her adorable pooch, Pearl. And apparently, Lea's mini-me is just as glam as she is! The 27-year-old actress shared the above pic with the caption, "Pearls first photo shoot!"
Michele introduced the new member of her family on Twitter:

Michele has been easing back into the spotlight following the death of boyfriend Cory Monteith this past summer. She spoke out about her loss for the first time last week ahead of the "Glee" tribute episode entitled "The Quarterback."
"I feel like, for me personally, I've lost two people: Cory and Finn," Lea said. "Everyone is asking: 'Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?' But the truth is, it's no harder at work than it is in life so we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together."
Behind close doors Michele is still grieving, but is moving forward.
"It's still incredibly hard for her, but she has the support of great friends and especially her 'Glee' family," one source tells omg!.
Contrary to reports, an insider close to the actress tells omg! that right now, "dating is the farthest thing from her mind."

Sounds like all Lea needs is little Pearl.
