Miley Cyrus tweets photos of her new rescue puppy, Penny Lane: so cute?

Miley Cyrus

Surprise, surprise, Miley Cyrus has been tweeting again. This time though, it’s not all about emo declarations, duck lips, and hair. Instead, Miley is posting photos of her adorable new rescue puppy, which is a teacup dog of some sort (anyone know what breed?) that Miley has named Penny Lane. Miley is a huge dog person and even takes her dogs along for plane trips when she visits Liam Hemsworth on set. Although supposedly, Miley has insisted that she and Liam’s pre-nuptial agreement cover cover custody arrangements for the dogs, so these are really her babies. And that’s fine because if it keeps Miley from deciding to have a few bandaid (human) babies to keep Liam’s attention in a few years, so be it. Isn’t Penny Lane the cutest though? Just to give you an idea of how tiny this dog really is, here’s a picture of Penny Lane next to one of Miley’s other dogs.

Here are some more photos of Miley’s various pups. As far as I know, all of these dogs are either of the stray or rescue variety, and she’s also been honored by PETA (if that means anything at all) with a cute pet pig. Say what you want about Miley and her attention-seeking antics, but I’ll take a celeb who promotes adoption of rescue dogs over one who pays $12,000 for a Goldendoodle any day.

OMG, look at that Alaskan Husky! So cute.

    If I had the resources I’d have a million rescue dogs.

  2. Amelia says:

    It looks like bits and bobs IMO. Maybe a bit of terrier? Cute. Probably trouble :)
    I hope she knows what she’s doing with that husky. We used to breed them and take in unwanted huskies when idiots realised that when they grow up, they’re huge dogs, lots of work and have a tendancy to chase small, fluffy things.

  3. Nashville Girl says:

    Her white dog next to the puppy looks JUST like our rescue! I would have that many rescues if I had the space.

  4. emmie_a says:

    Cute dogs.

    Yes, Usher paid $12,000 for a dog. For charity! Adpotion is great – and so is supporting charitable causes.

    all of her dogs are adorable, and I commend her for rescuing them and giving them a loving home.. BUT when does it become to many? when does it go from rescuing to hoarding? Now, I’m not saying she is-so don’t jump on me but i just wonder if she’s able to give equal attention to all the animals because if not, that’s not really fair to her animals… just a thought, I am in no way saying anything bad about her..

    • Amelia says:

      You make a good point, Marie.
      After a certain number is passed, dogs can develop a pack mentality which can be ****ing dangerous. You need to learn when to say enough is enough, because too many animals and not enough individual attention can spell trouble.
      I believe the Queen was told to slow down on the Corgi breeding after some very unfortunate incidents which I won’t go into in case I start getting weepy.
      … Ah. I’m getting on a bit of a doggy soap box. *steps off*

    • Samigirl says:

      I was wondering the same thing. I know all of her animals are well taken care of, but she’s got quite a few! And isn’t there a law stating how many you can have? I seem to remember Paris Hilton getting in trouble over too many pups.

      • Mia 4S says:

        It’s starting to look suspiciously like attention seeking behavior more than anything else. (from Miley, shocker right?)

        Seriously though, how about giving some individual time to the ones you have rather than needing to be pictured on Twitter every two minutes with a new puppy? With her money she could fund several no kill shelters and/or sanctuaries…but then that means no “look at me with a new puppy” photo. It’s getting uncomfortable.

    • Agnes says:

      i was thinking the same thing too. hopefully she’s hired people to take proper care of them, give them attention etc. i’m all for dogs (we have a rescue that my husband found), but at some point the number becomes unmanageable.

      • emmie_a says:

        Agnes: I know what you’re saying but isn’t that silly — to hire people to give your dogs attention? That’s the owner’s job and if you can’t do it properly then you have too many dogs!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        That’s what I was thinking, Agnes.

        @Emmie-Does it really matter how much attention Miley in particular gives them? As long as the dogs are properly cared for and are likely living in a nicer house than you or I then I still think that’s a step up from languishing in a shelter or worse yet, being put down.

        @Marie-I did wonder the same thing but I still think that what she’s doing, at the end of the day, is a good thing.

        Personally, I think one dog is a HUGE responsibility and as much as I want one, I know all the work it entails and I know that I’m too busy to give a dog the attention she needs.
        Then again, I don’t have the staff/money/resources that Miley has. *shrugs*

      • emmie_a says:

        I was just making a general comment. I’m not saying that these or any dogs would be better off in a shelter or dying!!!!

        In general dogs like to please their pack leader (usually the owner). Too many dogs in the pack creates discord and competition among the pack members.

    • Brown says:

      I have worked in rescue for many years, and my current dog came from an organization where he was in sanctuary his entire life (he was 7 when I adopted him.) Though he had food, water, a bed, and a safe place to live, he never got the one-on-one attention he needed to become a happy, healthy dog. He had to share the attention from his human with many other rescue animals and he fell by the wayside. There were at least 7 or 8 personal dogs in the home, along with all of the rescue animals looking for adoption. He was neglected, but on an emotional level rather than a physical one. And it was unintentional.

      There is a thing as too many, even if your heart is in the right place and you have the resources.

    Her house must smell so awful with all those dogs in it. Good for her she loves animals, but one or maybe two would’ve been enough.

    • Samigirl says:

      You know, I don’t know. I’ve got a couple of girlfriends that have 7 dogs (2 of which are just born pups) and 3 cats. They literally clean EVERY DAY and their house never smells bad. Now, if you go in the bathroom where the kitty litter is, you can smell that, but they fabreeze and scentsy the heck out of their furniture and home, respectively, and their home always smells pleasant.

    • Michelle says:

      WHy do you care? can you smell her house from where you are at? will you ever be invited over?

      I say good for her I have 5 dogs and guess what? if you do not clean your house, even if you have no pets, it will STINK! you don;t think humans are filthy and disgusting too?
      It is so nice to know you approve of only 2 dogs but no more because you cannot stand to picture the smell.

      ad least she is trying to do something good and I say the more people in the spotlight not buying designer breeds and showing how cute rescues are too the better

  7. Effy says:

    Awww Penny Lane is the cutest!!! :)

  8. spinner says:

    Awwwww…the puppy is a Lhasa Apso. One of the oldest breeds of dogs in the world. I have had 2. My last Lhasa (Bob Barker) died at age 14 (sob) I am just looking into rescuing another & it will definitely be a Lhasa.

  9. ella says:

    I think adopting a rescue dog is a great and noble thing to do.

    I’m not sure adopting a new one every week is, though. Can she really pay enough attention to each dog and make sure they’re all doing ok?

    I’m having enough trouble trying to raise my ONE rescue dog into a happy, well behaved individual.

  10. Pollo says:

    I hate when idiots like her use dogs and gay right in their favor for attention.

    It’s clear redneck hillbillies hate gays and mistreat dogs.

    She makes me sick.

    “look at me!! I rescue dogs, look, look!

  11. Nancy says:

    i hate how the word rescue is used so lightly. adopting, buying and rescuing to me are 3 different things. adopting is when you take in a homeless dog for an adoption fee from the person or organization that rescued the animal. buying is buying from a store or breeder. rescuing is what rescue groups do by taking dogs from kill shelters or the streets, getting them neutered, and vetted, and then find homes for them. but that’s just my opinion and everyone has one.

  12. spinner says:

    Before humans die, they write their last Will & Testament, give their home & all they have, to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I’d ask…

    To a poor and lonely stray I’d give:

    My happy home.
    My bowl & cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys.
    The lap, which I loved so much.
    The hand that stroked my fur & the sweet voice which spoke my name.

    I’d Will to the sad, scared shelter dog, the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

    So, when I die, please do not say, “I will never have a pet again, for the pain is more than I can stand.”

    Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope and give MY place to HIM.

    This is the only thing I can give…

    The love I left behind.

    Nothing at all against her, but a lot of the people who rescue carnivores puzzle me a bit. Most shelters here use feed that is produced with serious cruelty, using meat from nations such as China and Thailand with very low welfare standards. I understand the economic reasons, but one dog or cat in such a shelter is therefore being kept alive by the horrible lives and painful deaths of a large number of other animals.

    I would imagine her animals are fed high welfare meat, so it’s not an issue, but I do flinch a bit when I think of the meat production along the way for many shelters. Not sure why a cat is worth so much more than a cow or a pig, that’s all.

  14. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    When Miley was 16, she got a maltipoo, “Sophie” for her bday..I have done some research online, trying to discover what happened to it, cant find anything about her with that particular dog lately (as in the past couple of years). Anyone know the story??

  15. KellyinSeattle says:

    Yeah the dog is cute, but who else is sick of Miley’s tweeting, attention seeking with her hair, etc. , and her need to be relevant?

  16. Apples says:

    I have no strong opinions about her either way.
    But, for someone of her age, the name Penny Lane is awesome.
    Kind of impressed with that.

  17. bbybt says:

    The People article says that she referred to Penny Lane as her “niece” because her 12-year-old sister Noah adopted the dog. I don’t think it’s her dog.

  18. SHA says:

    When I saw the name Penny Lane I thought about the movie Almost Famous with Kate Hudson her character name was Penny Lane I believe wonder if she named it after the movie?

  19. lucy2 says:

    Wow, that’s a LOT of dogs. I’m guessing she has plenty of time to hang out with them, and money to take care of them though.
    Glad anytime an animal in a shelter finds a home.

  20. Onyx XV says:

    Cute puppy!! And good for her for giving all those dogs such a good home! I’m no Miley Cyrus fan, but at least she does something worthwhile with her money.

  21. LeslieM says:

    I’m glad to see her looking so well.

  22. henderswife says:

    I love the name Penny Lane! My hubby got me a rescue dog for Mother’s Day a couple of years ago and I told him if he had gotten me a female dog that would have been her name. I got a little boy so I named him Bernie Kosar. Miley’s Penny Lane is adorable!

  23. Kaely says:

    I’m kind of happy that these dogs are getting home. But..with Miley, she posts a picture of either a new dog, or one of her somewhat recent ones.
    My question is, are someone above brought it up: WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE OTHER DOGS (e.g. Mate, Sophie, Joey, Loco, Juicy, Fluke, Tex, Shooter and Rody? <- Google provided me with names.) They surely couldn't have all died.. And if she gave them away..why keep getting more dogs ?

  24. Kristin says:

    She’s a beautiful girl and as far as celebrities go, she’s a good egg, but her hair is terrible and very unflattering.

  25. LadyBird83 says:

    And she stole my dogs name. Gotta wonder if she even understand the importance of the song and why John Lennon wrote it.
