Mario Lopez’s five-month search for a new dog has ended – thanks to Oprah Winfrey.

The talk show queen suggested Lopez get a French Bulldog when he asked her opinion. Enter Frenchie Julio Cesar Chavez Lopez.

“I am so excited to have [him] in my life,” the former “Dancing with the Stars” competitor told People. “After months on the hunt, I’ve realized that a French Bulldog is the right dog for me.”

Lopez launched his search in mid-September, calling on celebrities, pet experts and animal shelters for advice.

Lopez said his main objective was to find a companion.

“Somebody I can come home to,” Lopez said. “A buddy.” Bingo, apparently – the AKC calls the breed’s main role “lap warmer.”

Lopez is grateful to Winfrey for steering him toward the breed.

“She called it,” Lopez said.
