Kristen, 22, and Robert, 26, already have Bear, a mixed mutt they adopted from a high-kill shelter in New Orleans, and now they want to find him a play pal!
“They were desperate for Bear to have a companion, but recent events meant they had to hold off from the idea.
“Just like with Bear, they’re going to scour petfinder.com, as well as a few high-kill shelters to find the perfect pal for their beloved pooch.
“Kristen and Robert will be spending Thanksgiving together and are hoping to have a new addition to the family before then.
“They haven’t got a preference with the breed, but are leaning towards the idea of a female friend for Bear.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Kristen and Robert had trouble on the pet front when they were going through tough times after Kristen was caught cheating with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
The two were embroiled in a bitter custody battle over Bear when Robert contemplated breaking his relationship off with his Twilight co-star.
But after being seen holding hands over Halloween, it appears the lovebirds are back on track and the atmosphere between them has mellowed.
In fact, the carefree young couple seemed at ease during a recent MTV interview promoting the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
When asked about their sex scene in the highly anticipated finale of the series, Kristin deferred the question to Robert, who compared the exchange to the iconic love scene between Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore from 1990's Ghost.
“I haven't seen it yet, so I don't know, but I imagine it's quite like the scene where they're doing pottery,” Robert said.
Asked about their Halloween costumes this year, they went to a party at a cemetery in Hollywood Wednesday -- he in a clear mask, she in a wig and sunglasses.
“Oh yeah, I look awesome,” Kristen said, while the droll RPattz joked of his costume: “I chose someone who is just genuinely terrifying; it was a $3 mask from a 7-Eleven.”
