Miley with Happy

Something Good Comes From Walmart! – On Tuesday Miley Cyrus brought home a Rottweiler-Beagle mix puppy that was abandoned in a parking lot.

She tweeted, “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.” (Maybe it was also inspired by those smiley faces that accompany the sale items at walmart?)

Looks like Happy will join Floyd, Ziggy, and Lila as the fourth dog in her family.

Miley’s boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, was seen bringing back a dog bed and more food on wednesday, and now we know why.

Nice to see stars like Miley Cyrus open their homes to stray dogs. (but still shopping at Walmart… really?!)

Miley is one of the most influential teens nowadays. A lot of kids or even teens that’s following her way back in Hannah Montana days up to now. Adapting that puppy, shows only how good and kind she is, not only for her fans or the people around her but also for animals. Keep it up Miley. :)

Some stars take home children so I suppose this makes a change.! No doubt the pooch will be treated well :)

Don’t forget Mary Jane or Mate!

She’s up to about 6 right now. That’s not even counting Sophie or Roadie or Loco or any of her other dogs from interviews past.

Lovely story, and you have to support anyone that loves dogs as much as she does. I would love to share the story of my love, Bowery.

That mix is going to make for one big dog!

This is a great story. Plus this mutt sounds amazing as it combines my 2 favorite breeds of dog.

Miley is setting a good example, not just for teens who idolize her, but for everybody to have a good heart for pets. Who would leave such a cute little pup anyway? I hope this doesn’t become a bad habit, leaving dogs at the Walmart parking lot. Happy is too adorable, and he deserves to be in a loving family.

People can be so cruel. I’m glad Miley is setting a good example.
