It looks like former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and boyfriend Jason Tartick have added a new member of the family. The couple adopted another Golden Retriever, Pinot. Their new addition joins their other fur baby, Ramen just in time for Christmas.
Kaitlyn hinted at a getting another dog
Just five days ago, Kaitlyn took to Instagram to ask fans if Ramen should have a sibling. In the post she tagged @bunnysbuddies. Then, the big announcement came Sunday. Kaitlyn shared a photo of all four of them. Jason is holding one and Kailtyn is holding the other.
She said, “MERRY CHRISTMAS TO US!! Ramen has a new brother 😍😍. MEET PINOT.” According to Kaitlyn’s post, Pinot was saved from a kill shelter in South Korea by @bunnysbuddies.

A Christmas surprise came early! We now have Ramen with a side of Pinot! Welcoming our newest addition, “Pinot G” to the family. With the help of @bunnysbuddies we rescued Pinot, who was in the exact same Kill shelter as Ramen. As devastating as it is, dogs put in these Kill Shelters have only 10 days to be rescued. The work @bunnysbuddies does is absolutely incredible and has changed Ramen & Pinot’s lives, as well are ours. In just a short time of witnessing it, it’s clear Pinot was Ramen’s long lost best friend and brother…they adore one another. And the fact his name was Pinot before we got him…can’t make this stuff up! Very excited to share the Pinot surprise video…I’ll have it shortly! Happy Holidays from our Family to yours!
The former Bachelorette talks about Pinot’s personality
Kaitlyn continued her post saying, “I was so worried how Ramen would react… But let me tell you.. You will see through my stories that these pups took to each other RIGHT away. They snuggle, and don’t leave each other’s side. Pinot is a big mushy sweet heart who is some how more cuddly than Ramen. He’s got the SOFTEST coat, and the biggest heart.”
She also knows how there will be questions and criticism about her and Jason owning two dogs. The criticism she feels will come from those wondering how they will manage the duo since they travel a lot. Kaitlyn said, “I know a lot of people will ask how we will do this with traveling so much. But we will make it work. This isn’t about us. This is about giving a sweet innocent pup a new life. We will continue to do what we do, and just do it with 2 instead of 1. #adoptdontshop #GoldenRetrievers #dogsofinstagram.”
Jason also shared the exciting news on Instagram
On Jason’s Instagram, he shared another photo of Kaitlyn and himself holding Ramen and Pinot. He shared that Pinot had been in the exact same kill shelter that Ramen had been in.
Jason said, “In just a short time of witnessing it, it’s clear Pinot was Ramen’s long lost best friend and brother…they adore one another. And the fact his name was Pinot before we got him…can’t make this stuff up!”
He concluded his post saying, “Happy Holidays from our Family to yours!”

Hello Instagram! It’s me Pinot! Wanted to tell everyone a little bit about myself! I’m quite a character if I do say so myself. My name was pinot before I even met my forever family, so I think it’s meant to be. We think I’m around 1, but it’s hard to say. I weigh 52lbs. I still look and act like a puppy, and my mom and dad laugh at how big my paws are… My teeth say that I could be around 2 but I think that’s because I wasn’t on a healthy diet. A lot of Vet’s are not educated on the teeth erosion in Asia. We chew sticks, Horrid kibble and sometimes garbage 🙁 I was in the same kill shelter as Ramen, and when we met, I swear we both knew what each other had been through and bonded right away. I don’t think this happens very often. But patience is always key with us, and we always come around. I am what they call derpy, but very smart. Super soft, and I love love. My favorite thing to do is jump on mom or dad and lay as closely as I can to their face. I’m so thankful to be rescued and have a safe home. There are so many of us who need to be saved. Thank you @bunnysbuddies for helping me and so many other dogs. ❤️
Kaitlyn shares another adorable post of Pinot
Today, Kaitlyn went back to Instagram to share another photo of Pinot by a little Christmas tree. In the post she wrote as if it was Pinot talking and introducing himself to Instagram. Kaitlyn wrote about where he had come from and how he has bonded with Ramen.
She went on to say, “I am what they call derpy, but very smart. Super soft, and I love love. My favorite thing to do is jump on mom or dad and lay as closely as I can to their face. I’m so thankful to be rescued and have a safe home. There are so many of us who need to be saved. Thank you @bunnysbuddies for helping me and so many other dogs. ❤️.”
Congrats to Kaitlyn, Jason and Ramen on their new family member.
