Kelly Osbourne is hoping to adopt Joan Rivers' dogs, according to reports. The 29-year-old Fashion Police host bonded with the late comic co-star over their pets as well as their love of fashion. Following Joan's unexpected passing last month, Kelly is reportedly eager to give the two New York-based pups she left behind a new home. "They were so close and really bonded over their love of dogs," a source told the American edition of OK! magazine. "Kelly feels caring for them would be a way to keep Joan close."
'If Melissa's son, Cooper, says he wants the dogs, she'll keep them... but she knows they'd have a good home with Kelly'
Joan also had two dogs at her home in Los Angeles and it is believed that her daughter Melissa would be happy to hand the New York pooches over to the purple-haired fashionista because she has so many other things on her plate, including looking after the LA pups.
As well as sorting out her mother's estate, Melissa, 46, has to make a decision about who, if anyone, could replace Joan as the anchor of the hit E! fashion show, which she presented right up until her death on September 4.
"If Melissa's son, Cooper, says he wants the dogs, she'll keep them... but she knows they'd have a good home with Kelly," the source continued.
Kelly and her family have always loved pets, with her mom Sharon Osbourne regularly seen carrying a Japanese Chin or Chihuahua. However, the former singer hasn't always had the best luck with her pooches, with Pomeranian puppy Woody dying in 2010 from a suspected heart attack.
And she was left devastated the next year when another puppy of the same breed, Noodles, had to be put down after a scan revealed he had been born with an untreatable brain defect.
"Noodles is not going to make it. she was born with a brain defect and I have to put her to sleep today," she wrote on Twitter at the time. "I'm devastated. I just cant believe it.(sic)"
