Miley Cyrus Adopts New Dog: Meet Emu!

by at . Comments

Miley Cyrus has welcomed a new member of her family.

The singer, who spent a long time mourning her dog Floyd after he was killed by a coyote earlier this year, posted a photo online over the weekend of herself and a puppy named Emu.

Looks like he fits right in, doesn't it?

"time to start making Emu accounts smilers,” Miley captioned this Instagram photo. “Hes here and here to stay. I welcomed Emu Coyne Cyrus into the family a couple days ago. Been keepin him a secret cause sometimes I’m weird like that."

Cyrus - who was given a dog by her mom shortly after Floyd died, only to give him back because she wasn't ready for a new pet - then referenced her late furry friend:

"It’s taken some time to be ready for this next step and loving again. There will never be anyone like Floyd. There was a bond that was so deep it’s irreplaceable but that’s not what I am trying to do."

On more than one occasion during her Bangerz tour, Miley has sang to a statue of Floyd on stage. She also broke down on a couple of occasions in front of fans.

We know no one can ever replace her previous pet, but Emu looks like a keeper.

Here's a look at several other celebrities who really love their pets:
