Less than a month after the loss of her dog Lila, Miley Cyrus has a new puppy to call her own.
“Meet Bean,” the star tweeted along with a snap of the small pup.
“Bean is a little girl,” she continued. “She is a chihuahua mix of some type :) she brought so much sunshine!!! I love my little bean so much.”
The self-proclaimed animal lover adopted the dog from Spot! Pet Boutique in Los Angeles, Calif., perhaps in effort to fill the void left by the passing of her late puppy Lila who Cyrus has mourned since the dog’s death in early December.
“Feeling connected to my baby girl Lila after tonight. i know she’s up in doggy heaven proud of her mommy for staying strong,” the 20-year-old tweeted on Dec. 17, adding days later, “Times like this is when I really miss Lila.”
Bean joins Cyrus’ ever-expanding clan of pooches, who all share her home with fiancé Liam Hemsworthin Studio City, Calif.
And for the singer-actress — the “proud mama” to pups Ziggy, Floyd, Happy, Mary Jane and Penny Lane, her dogs are family. Last February, Cyrus joked, “Why would I need human friends? dude, Lila will ALWAYS love me & that’s more than we can say about most humans.”
