Paris Hilton is experiencing some serious puppy love.

Hilton got her new pet from Teacup Puppy Paradise, which has dogs priced as high as $15,000. The company's website notes that Hilton's Chihuahua weighs only 12 oz and is 4 months old.

Given how happy Hilton looks in her photo shoot with the puppy, she was worth every penny.

The former Simple Life star does have some ideas as to what to name the new addition to her family. "Love my lil #SupermodelPup!" she captioned another pic. "Still trying to figure out the perfect name. Deciding between #DiamondBaby or #LoveBug. Thoughts?"

Hilton's purchase of the pup comes over a year after she lost her beloved Chihuahua, Tinkerbell. "My heart is broken. I am so sad and devastated," the tiny dog lover wrote in an emoji-filled message in April 2015. "After 14 amazing years together, my baby Tinkerbell has passed away of old age."

"I feel like I've lost a member of my family," she continued. "She was such a special and incredible soul. We went through so much together. I can't believe she's gone. I will miss her and think about her for the rest of my life. I love you Tinky, you are a Legend and will never be forgotten. #RIPTinkerbell."

Tinkerbell was also credited with starting the trend referred to as "handbag dogs," and it just so happens that Hilton's new dog is also small enough to fit in a pocket.
