Before getting engaged to the person of her dreams at the Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert needed to make certain he met the family. And The big apple construction manager J.P. Rosenbaum did – aside from one important member: Hebert’s teacup Yorkie, Boo. Hebert’s fiancé finally frolicked with Boo earlier this month when the couple traveled to her hometown of Madawaska, Maine. And, to no one’s surprise, the 2 get on well right away.
“J.P. loved Boo,” Hebert told PEOPLE at Sunday’s Boy Meets Girl presentation during The big apple Fashion Week. “They’re good. They are going to be best friends.”
Hebert may be looking ahead to getting reacquainted with Boo, who have been living in Maine since filming for The Bachelorette began five months ago.
“She’s so sweet. She is going to be in The big apple [with me] very soon, but my mother’s caring for her right now,” Hebert said. “It was so sad [to depart her] because I had just gotten her, but then I DISCOVERED out I USED TO BE going to do the show.”
Hebert already knows where she desires to take Boo within the The big apple – Madison Square Park for dog treats – and what the pooch can be like at the sidewalks of the town: “She just loves everyone. She’s this kind of friendly dog. I CANNOT wait to stroll her around New York.”
As for when Boo may be capable of get from Madawaska to Manhattan, that’s harder to mention. “I FEEL things want to settle down, things are a bit of crazy now with school,” Hebert said. “I WOULD LIKE things to relax so I’VE more time to spend with J.P.”
