Miley Cyrus‘ family has a new addition!
The 28-year-old “Midnight Sky” singer took to Instagram on Sunday night (February 21) to introduce fans to her newly adopted pit bull named Angel.
Angel joins Miley‘s family almost two months after her beloved dog Mary Jane died in early January after a battle with cancer.
“Almost two months ago my best friend a rescued pit mix Mary Jane left this world. I knew she wasn’t gone for good. She had out lived the body she was in but she never said goodbye ….. with her eyes she whispered ‘See you soon Bestie,’” Miley started. “Mary Jane defined loyalty and would never break a promise. I feel her here with me blessing this new member to my family who’s name is ‘Angel’ because she was delivered to me by one… My Mary.”
Along with her message, Miley shared tons of photos of Angel getting acquainted with her new family at home.
“It breaks my heart to know Angel was sleeping on concrete in a shelter for 3 months before finally making it home. The stigma and stereotype that surrounds pit bulls tears me in two,” Miley continued. “This breed is incomparably loving. Just like humans nurture often overrides nature. I want to thank @lisachiarelli for her dedication in fighting for the lives of pit bulls & finding me my perfect fit. I am head over heels in love. Not sure I will ever sleep again because I can’t take my eyes off of her! Her halo shines for all to see and I can’t wait to show her off! It’s pretty cool having an Angel on a leash! She is illuminated by the aura of the late and great Mary Jane. Long live love. It never dies. * ALL THE TEARS YOU SEE IN THIS SLIDE ARE HAPPY ONES * 😭 💙💕🦴💌 ⛪️”
Angel joins Miley‘s other dogs Emu, a shetlands sheepdog, and Bean, a Chihuahua mix.
