Bossy, a 9-week-old Australian kelpie, started filming with the show today (Wednesday) and will appear on screen as a new companion for Kyle Canning.
Ramsay Street's latest recruit apparently had cast and crew "mesmerised with her screen presence" as she made her debut.
Christopher Milligan, who plays the role of Kyle, joked: "Yeah, I certainly feel like I'm playing second fiddle when she is in the scene.
"All eyes are on Bossy, I could be sitting there naked and I don't think anyone would notice."
A Neighbours statement added: "With the passing of Ramsay Street's long-time resident pooch Audrey, the producers were keen to introduce a pup to the show. Milligan's character Kyle Canning, a tradie, fitted the bill perfectly for a four-legged companion."
Neighbours' Australian fans will see Bossy's introduction in late April. The scenes will air in May on Channel 5 in the UK.
