Los Angeles - Kelly Osbourne wants to adopt Joan Rivers' dogs.
The Fashion Police co-host is eager to take responsibility for the late star's rescue puppies, a Havanese, a Japanese Chin, a Jack Russell terrier and a border collie, but only if her daughter Melissa Rivers approves of the idea.
A source said: "They were so close and really bonded over their love of dogs. Kelly feels caring for them would be a way to keep Joan close."
Melissa is so busy sorting out her mother's estate that she is thinking about giving the dogs to Kelly, 29.
The insider added to US OK! magazine: "If Melissa's son, Cooper, says he wants the dogs, she'll keep them... but she knows they'd have a good home with Kelly.
"Kelly already has dogs and knows she could care for Joan's as well."
Joan reportedly made provisions for her pets in her will and stated they would move from her opulent Upper East Side Manhattan condo to the home of one of her personal assistants, Jocelyn Pickett, in the event of her death.
