(CELEBRITY PETS) Meet Bean, Miley Cyrus’ newest addition to her puppy pack. The 20-year-old pop star broke the news on Twitter that she has adopted an adorable Chihuahua mix from Spot!, a local animal shelter in Los Angeles. Since announcing the latest member of her family, the singer and actress has been obsessively tweeting adorable pics of her new little puppy. Earlier this year, Miley rescued an abandoned puppy from outside of a Walmart, proving once again that she is a devoted animal lover and a consistent helping hand to animals without a home. We applaud Miley for her humane actions and are happy to see that she is inspiring others to do the same. — Global Animal

Miley Cyrus might just be a shelter dog’s best friend. The singer has proven herself to be a big advocate for homeless critters by promoting adoption and plastering twitter with pictures of herself and her newly adopted family members.
The most recent addition to the Cyrus clan came yesterday from Saving SPOT! Rescue, an organization that the singer supports. She tweeted about the pup, “Bean is a little girl she is a chihuahua mix of some type she brought so much sunshine!!!”
Hollywood is full of celebs who have adopted their critters. Just over the holiday Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield brought home a new pooch from a shelter. (Thankfully since they had also checked out a pet store.) Katherine Heigl and Kristin Chenoweth have their own organizations to promote adoption.
Rob Thomas also takes to twitter frequently to help raise money and awareness for shelters. But Cyrus has to take the cake in terms of how many followers she reaches (over 11 million) and how often she tweets about her adopted pups. We would bet our best bicycle that she has inspired more than a few adoptions during her time on twitter.
Keep it up, Miley! Just a few words can lead to a brand new life for a dog or cat. Like Bean…
