Over the weekend the entertainer posted pictures of her new Chihuahua mix, Bean, on Twitter.
“U know I’m a complete crazy dog lady so you could imagine what’s happening to me right now,”she tweeted.
Bean was adopted from Los Angeles’ Spot! dog rescue — the same organization to which she surrendered another dog, Ziggy, late last year.
Examiner.com found great significance in the act:
“As Miley Cyrus opened her home for the four legged creature out of the goodness of her own heart, it seems that other humans are thinking about adoption too. In what has become a teaching moment, it appears Miley Cyrus is actually showing people how much goodness is found in the process of adopting an animal.”
In November, Cyrus lost Lila, her two-year-old Yorkie, when Ziggy, a bulldog she bought for fiance Liam Hemsworth, killed the smaller dog. Ziggy was sent to a rescue organization to be rehomed.
Cyrus has adopted at least six dogs in recent years, including Floyd, an Alaskan Klee Kai, also known as a miniature husky, a Rottweiler-beagle mix named Happy, and a black and white mixed breed named Mary Jane.

Tish Cyrus, in an entry on her blog, says Ziggy “grabbed” Lila in “just the wrong spot and Lila didn’t survive.”
“For some unknown reason, Ziggy grabbed Lila …Not really sure if she was playing or what … We dont think Ziggy is a mean dog.”
She said Ziggy was “taken to SPOT dog rescue and they found her a new home with no other pets or children just in case it wasn’t a fluke.”
Miley Cyrus tweeted about Lila’s death last week: “For everyone asking … I have never been so hurt in my life My heart has never been so broken … Lila my sweet baby girl has passed away.”
Lila, a Yorkie mix, turned 2 in November.
Cyrus has adopted at least five dogs in recent years, including Floyd, an Alaskan Klee Kai, also known as a miniature husky, a Rottweiler-beagle mix named Happy, and a black and white mixed breed named Mary Jane.
Each time, news coverage resulted, as it did when she dyed Lila pink for her second birthday.
Her mother Tish said Miley was not ready to talk about what happened:
“As for Miley, its been a really tough week. As you all know her beloved baby girl Lila passed away. Everyone has been so precious and so supportive of her and I love you all so much for that. Miley loved Lila more than anyone can imagine. I know some people were saying its JUST a dog, but to Miley she was so much more.”

She named the pup Happy, and Tweeted a photo of herself getting her hair washed while holding him.
“He was left in a box in front of Walmart. I don’t understand how people can be so cruel. That’s why we named him Happy,” she wrote.
Cyrus thinks the dog is a Rottweiler-beagle mix.
Happy joins Miley’s other pooches Ziggy, Lila and Floyd, reports People magazine.
But the story doesn’t answer the biggest question of all: What was Miley Cyrus doing at a Walmart?

John Travolta has played a sympathetic hit man, a teenage rebel, a middle-aged biker, a presidential candidate, a disco king and an overweight housewife — and let’s not forget Vinnie Barbarino on “Welcome Back, Kotter” — but the newly released “Bolt,” is both his first animated feature and his first time playing a dog.
“Bolt” — a movie about a dog with “superpowers” that features the voices of Travolta and Miley Cyrus, aka Hannah Montana – opened across the United States on Friday.
Travolta, 54, is the voice of Bolt, an eager-to-please puppy. It’s a role Travolta said comes more naturally to him than the cool cat he often plays.
“Growing up, people always compared me to a dog in those games about what kind of animal you’d be,” Travolta said. “As a person, I’m probably a dog — I’m big on loyalty,” he told Reuters. “But on screen I’m more of a cool cat. If you think of my roles in ‘Pulp Fiction’ or ‘Saturday Night Fever’ or ‘Grease’ — he’s more of cat. But in life, I’m more of a cuddler.”
There’s a quick clip from the movie in the video above of Travolta’s recent appearance on “The Early Show” on CBS.
Travolta also sings a duet with Cyrus on the “I Thought I Lost You” theme tune to “Bolt.”
Bolt is the powerful and confident star of a kids action series on TV. But when he becomes separated from his beloved “person” (voiced by Miley Cyrus), he discovers that his superbark and laser vision are mere Hollywood magic and he must get by in the real world like any other four-legged creature.
