John’s longtime friend and co-star Jamie Lee Curtis, who helped arrange the adoption of the rescue pup, was among those to comment on the post.
‘OH MAC ‘N CHEESE IS SO HAPPY!’ she gushed, in reference to the family’s seemingly loving interaction with the golden pooch.
A few weeks earlier, Mac N Cheese was presented at the 94th Academy Awards as a tribute to Betty White to honor the late Hollywood star’s dedication to animal rights and charity.

After Mac N Cheese had his moment in the spotlight with Jamie Lee, John met the pup backstage and began bonding with her for about half an hour.
The next day, Benjamin started an adoption procedure with the animal rescue organization Paw Works.
In those 24 hours, the Travoltas had a new four-legged family member.
