Kevin Spacey adopts rescue dog named Boston, after recent Marathon bombings

Kevin Spacey has adopted a rescue dog, and in honour of the city, following the tragedy, he named his new pet Boston.

Spacey took to Twitter and posted adorable pictures of himself and Boston.

“Mystery solved,” the 53-year-old actor wrote. “New member of my family. Her name is Boston in honour of the city,” he added.

Spacey adopted Boston from the North Shore Animal League.

The actor already has a 15-year-old dog named Mini, who was also adopted.

“For those asking, Mini is great. 15 & still acting like a puppy,” he tweeted this week. “Be a week or so before she can meet Boston. I’m definitely in doggie heaven!”

So, Mini has a new playmate. Watch the cutest pics ever!
