PR queen in DC adopts a puggle

Public relations queen Courtney Cohen is welcoming a new (adorable) family member ... her puggle named Wallis.

The happy union was nearly a year-and-a-half in the making. Cohen, who runs her eponymous Washington-based PR firm and previously worked as a production coordinator for George Stephanopoulos during ABC News’ 2008 election coverage, worked with the organization City Dogs Rescue to bring home her furry friend. The nine-week-old pup’s mom, who is half pug and half beagle, was pregnant with Wallis when she was rescued from a dog hoarder’s home in southern Virginia.
