It takes a good Amanda to rescue a dog in need. “Alpha Dog” star Amanda Seyfried may have met her match in a tiny pup.

The 32-year-old actress received an honor with Tuesday’s Save Them All Spotlight Award. She met a Chihuahua mix named Buttercup and fell in love.

“I’d love to take this puppy home,” she told fellow animal lover Jean Shafiroff at the event. “I’m tempted.”

But there’s a catch. Buttercup has a sister named Clover. And Seyfried was overheard telling a friend at the awards ceremony that she hated the idea of the sibling pups being separated. That friend, whom sources could not identify, made plans to meet with the SoHo adoption center where Clover is staying on Thursday to discuss giving her a forever home. Seyfried’s reps did not respond when asked if “The Last Word” star would be seeing more of Buttercup.
