Michael J. Fox is introducing the audience to the newest member of his family.

On Monday, the actor, who is 61 years old, shared with the followers of his Instagram account a gorgeous new puppy that he has called Blue.

Fox wrote in the caption of a picture of himself holding Blue as the two of them looked directly into the camera, “Hello Blue, welcome to your new home.”

In the comment area, Julianne Moore expressed her adoration for the puppy by stating, “Oh my god!! When Ali Wentworth joined in with, “THIS IS INSANE NUTS!,” we couldn’t help but laugh at how adorable that was. Such a stunning young lady! Please tell her that Auntie Ali is really excited to play…”

Tracy Pollan, who has been married to Fox for close to 35 years, recently posted a video on her Instagram Story showing Blue interacting with another dog.

She put “Best buddies” above the video of them having fun together.

The arrival of Fox’s new family member comes close to two years to the day after he said his last farewell to his dog Gus, who passed away in April of 2021.

The actor best known for his role in the film Back to the Future shared a picture of his dog, who had just been 12 years old, along with the tragic news on his Instagram account at the time.

He said in the caption, “Gus – fantastic dog and faithful buddy, we’ll miss you,” before mentioning many passages from his upcoming book, No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers losses, which will be published in 2020.

With Fox’s long fight against Parkinson’s illness, Gus has been a loyal friend of his over the years. Fox referred to the Great Dane and Labrador mix as a “miracle dog” in his book because the dog was a consistent encouragement for him throughout his battles with his health.

The actor wrote in his journal, “I did not save Gus.” You might make the case that he saved my life, but I doubt he’d ever admit it on his own initiative.

During the primetime special on CBS called The Pet Project that aired in November 2020, Fox spoke on how big of an influence Gus had on his life and how much it meant to him.

“You know that no matter your condition, no matter what you feel, this animal is with you and is linked to you, and you feel,” said Fox, who made his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease publicly for the first time in 1998. “You know that this creature is with you and is linked to you, and you feel.” It’s like having an extra pair of hands.

Your automatic response when you have a chronic illness is to sometimes isolate and make your world as small as possible so you don’t have much to deal with.”

After having surgery in 2018 to remove a tumor from his spinal cord, Fox needed to relearn how to walk. Gus played a very crucial role in his life at this time, as he helped Fox through this process.

According to the former cast member of Family Ties, Gus was there to greet him when he came home from the hospital in a wheelchair. Gus was waiting for him at the entrance.

During an interview with CBS News’ Lee Cowan, he recounted telling Cowan: “He sort of rounds the wheelchair with this low type of woof woof, woof woof, and sat in front of the wheelchair right in front of me, and looked at me, and I said, ‘It’s going to be alright.'”
