By Sharnaz Shahid

Justin Theroux is back at it on Instagram, breaking his social media silence following his shocking split from wife Jennifer Aniston. After announcing their plans to divorce last week, the American film producer flooded people's feeds with adorable photos of puppies at a dog shelter in Texas. "Another very inspiring visit with the incredible people and pups @austinpetsalive," he captioned one of the photos. "I cannot understand how they do what they do, day after day, so consistently and lovingly to save so many dogs and cats."

He added: "I HIGHLY recommend going in and getting your nose bit by a toothless baby pitbull. These two aren’t yet ready to go, but when they are go get em..." Justin, 46, then concluded the message with a nod to singer Selena Gomez, saying: "Yeah that's right Selena I did it to you again but if you saw these guys you'd do whatever you could too also I know you're chill like that."

The couple shocked the celebrity world earlier this month when they announced their separation after two and a half years of marriage. They released a statement to the Associated Press from Jennifer's publicist that read: "In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship."

"Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly," the statement continued. "Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else's fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain a deep respect and love that we have for one another."
