Tom Wilson and girlfriend Taylor Pischke have a new addition to their family. The couple just adopted a new puppy named Halle. The eight-week-old black lab mix is a rescue puppy from Wolf Trap Animal Rescue.
Tom and Taylor brought the very adorable Halle over to BASH on Tuesday to meet with employees during the Capitals’ day off. Wilson is an investor in the trendy Arlington boxing studio.

BASH’s Julie posted a photo on her Instagram Story of the three posing together. “Just met Tom and Taylor’s new fluffy pup! Thanks for bringing her by! 😍😍😍”
According to Wolf Trap Animal Rescue, Taylor and Tom fell in love with Halle after learning she was rescued from a cruelty situation in Mississippi.
Taylor and Tom found “Halle” on our Instagram, and it was love at first sight! Halle, along with her mother and 5 other siblings, were rescued from a cruelty situation in Mississippi. The whole family was transported up to Wolf Trap Animal Rescue here in Northern VA along with 40 other puppies and kittens!
Many of the puppies and kittens that come through our organization are in similar situations: abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
We are absolutely thrilled that this sweet girl has found her new happy forever home – and that she’ll grow up to be a #CapsFan!
Thank you for sharing this story with everyone. We firmly believe that #TogetherWeCanSaveThemAll…and maybe we can help them all #RockTheRed, too!
WTAR has lots of puppies, kittens, and adults that are always looking for homes! Check out our website or instagram @wolftrapanimalrescue for more info!
Taylor posted a family photo as well, and revealed Halle’s “favorite things are pine cones and digging holes.”
Michal Kempny’s girlfriend, Nicola, babysat Halle last night while the Capitals were in New York playing Buffalo.
In the past, Tom and Taylor have served as a foster parents for Tulip, a brindle-colored boxer/plott-hound mix puppy from Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.
In 2018, Wilson said his dream day in DC would be taking a foster puppy on a walk.
“My girlfriend and I have fostered a good amount of puppies, working with the Homeward Trails shelter,” Wilson said. “[S]o maybe if we have a puppy we’d walk it around and have fun with that.”
Congratulations to Tom and Taylor on their new addition. And congratulations to Halle who’s going to a very loving family and will thrive for the rest of her life.
