"This is how Ben's dog Peanut wakes me up," his caption read.

Travolta adopted Peanut for his son Ben, 13, after Jamie Lee Curtis brought her onstage at the 94th Academy Awards in 2022 in honor of Betty White’s dedication to animal welfare.

"They were dumped in a box outside the Avenal Shelter," Chad Atkins, co-founder and executive director of animal rescue Paw Works, told PEOPLE about the pup and her family.

In addition to Ben, Travolta is the proud father of daughter Ella Bleu, 23, and his late son Jett, who died in January 2009.

He shares his three children with his late wife, actress Kelly Preston, who died in 2020 following a two-year battle with breast cancer.

Meanwhile, Travolta's recent snap with Peanut comes after he shared a photo with Prince Harry, Lauren Sánchez  and Jeff Bezos at the 21st Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards on Jan. 19.

The evening saw Sánchez, 54, being honored with the Elling Halvorson Vertical Flight Hall of Fame Award as well as the Duke of Sussex, 39, being inducted into the Living Legends of Aviation.

"I was so proud to host Prince Harry, Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sánchez at Living Legends of Aviation awards event Friday night," Travolta wrote in his caption on Instagram. "Congrats to both Prince Harry and Lauren on their awards!!"
