'Bachelorette' Star Colton Underwood Adopts Dog From Korea

EXCLUSIVE

1:30 PM PT -- They're officially bros now.

11:00 AM PT -- Thor is on his way to Colton!

Colton Underwood has a new roommate ... and it's an adorable one. 

The 'Bachelorette' star is the proud new owner of a 2-year-old German Shepherd rescue ... the dog was destined for the meat markets of Asia before a non-profit org saved him and brought him to San Diego.

Colton made a donation to Bunny's Buddies, and they set him up with the pup. The ex-NFL stud was united with his new friend Saturday and changed his name from Tor to Thor.

That was a superhero move by Colton. His other dog, Sniper, will be happy too.
