Miley Cyrus gave away the bandaid puppy that mom Tish gave her

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is still experiencing major dog drama. Her favorite pup, an Alaskan Huskie mix named Floyd, died earlier this month. Miley was beside herself with misery and poured her sadness onto Twitter. A few days later, Tish Cyrus gifted Miley with a new puppy. Most of you agreed that it was way “too soon” for Miley to get another dog. I believe it wasn’t Miley’s fault that her mom waited only two days before buying a bandaid puppy for her daughter. Miley agrees. She has given the new pup, Moonie, to another owner. Miley announced via Twitter:

Us Weekly says Miley tweeted about giving Moonie to one of Tish’s friends (who has another small dog), but I can’t find any evidence of that tweet. It sounds like Miley doesn’t want to take the risk of one of her larger dogs attacking Moonie (which was what happened to Miley’s dog Lila in 2012). No one knows for sure what happened to Floyd. Internet rumors say he was attacked by a coyote, but that’s mere gossip.

Can we really blame Miley for not keeping little Moonie? She was gifted the dog far too soon after losing Floyd. I don’t see this as a Mercy Kardashian situation, but I could be wrong.

    I want to know what her mom was thinking getting her another dog. She’s on tour and her track record with keeping her current dogs safe was already questionable. i know that some people choose to adopt a new animal soon, but usually those people don’t already have six or so other dogs back at their home that they often have to leave for days at a time. The whole thing is so irresponsible, in my opinion.

      She was thinking: “We gotta keep the cash cow making money, plus is not like i Parent her in any way, teach her or enforce boundaries, respect, coping mechanisms or any of that shit, Im just here to be a gf and get me cash money for my hair extensions”

    • FLORC says:

      This is a family that spoiles their bread winning daughter to no end. When Billy Ray questioned his daughter behavior he was cut off and quickly sang a nicer toon.

      So, it makes sense Tish did this.
      And I agree. Miley has too many dogs and is not home enough to give them attention and structure. Makes me wonder if people like her only have pets to have on call affection when they want it.
      At least she gave the pup away to a person who could keep the dog safe (hopefully).

    As long as the dog has a good new home, no, can’t fault her.

    • Shannon says:

      Exactly! This was the most responsible thing she could have done. She clearly didn’t ask for the puppy, and I strongly suspect Moonie came from a puppy mill so it was for the best to find her a suitable owner who has the time to take care of a puppy and a compatible lifestyle.

  3. blue marie says:

    Nah, I don’t fault her from giving Moonie away, as long as it was to a good home. How many dogs does Miley have left?

    Strictly superficial, no way is a dog licking my lips.. they lick their own butthole.

  4. Abbott says:

    At least she showed better judgment than her mother.

  5. Kim1 says:

    Miley loves dogs
    Kim K I still don’t know why she got Mercy the cat

  6. Lemonsorbet says:

    The poor dog. It basically has had 3 owners already in such a small amount of time.

  7. Dhavynia says:

    Gosh that’s very difficult. If I lose my dog I’ll be taking it as hard as she is. If she feels it’s too soon then she did the right thing by giving it to someone who will give it the right care, and if it’s because of fear of the other dogs then definitely it was the right move.
    I hope her mom got her a rescue, does anyone know?

  8. Lark says:

    I actually think it was a mature, difficult to make move on Miley’s part and a shitty move on her mother’s part. She already has two dogs and lost her third one to a coyote apparently, and it just is crazy to me that her mom gave her a new puppy 2 days later when she was on tour and mourning her dog that had just died. At least Miley went and found the dog a nice home….I feel sorry for the dog and I feel a little sorry for Miley and I’m side-eying Tish.

  9. Caitlin's mommy says:

    Defamer has a pretty good story about Miley’s track record with dogs. She seems very irresponsible.

  10. poppy says:

    i don’t blame MC but isn’t it standard pet advice you don’t “gift” an animal for exactly this reason?!?!?!
    i guess that’s assuming someone like trish would care enough to look into what is responsible beforehand. she is AWFUL. (the nicest thing i can think to say)
    poor little dog. i hope it is through being passed around.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Yes, so stupid of her mother, as if MC lost her favorite handbag and she could just buy her a new one to replace it. Idiot. I hope the puppy found its forever home now.

    • Bridget says:

      You are correct. And a reputable breeder wouldn’t sell a dog to someone that was going to give a dog like that, and a private (non-municipal) shelter wouldn’t let you adopt a dog for someone else because of the high likelihood that it would come back to them and have to be re-homed.

      Why am I so grossed out by Tish Cyrus doing this? Is it because she’s treating Miley like a small kid, waving a new toy in front of her? Because it treats these living things as mere objects, to be given or thrown away on a whim? Or because she’s gross and I’ll feel that way about her no matter what?

  11. OhDear says:

    Can’t fault her for giving the dog up. The poor puppy, though – hopefully the new owner will be a good and permanent one.

  12. BendyWindy says:

    Animals should never be “gifts.” Period. Taking care of an animal is a life long commitment and opening your home and heart to one is so personal. It’s much more than “oh, this puppy is cute, I bet Miley will love it! ” I think her mom was shortsighted and wrong and I feel bad for all the turmoil Moonie experienced these last few weeks.

  13. JudyK says:

    I’m sure the dog is better off with someone else than with her. Her mother is a twit.

  14. hateonit. says:

    oh to be rich and famous….I would have to save up to buy a dog..and I love animals more than people. remember back in the day when Miley had hair and dressed normally and had a fiancé? all she would do was walk her dogs and take pics with her fiancé and dogs…my oh my how the time has passed.

  15. aenflex says:

    Maybe she isn’t responsible enough. Who knows. The one I feel badly for is poor Floyd.

  16. roxy750 says:

    WHATEVER to this all! UGH!!!!!

  17. RobN says:

    Lost my beloved yellow lab to bone cancer in January. If somebody had gifted me a new puppy two days later, I’m pretty sure that I would have hit them with something.

    Good for Miley for realizing it was too soon and finding the dog an appropriate home.

  18. Aysla says:

    I really respect Miley for this. I read somewhere that she said she was worried about Moonie’s safety, since its such a tiny pup (in addition for it being too soon for a new dog), which lends credence to the coyote rumor. I dislike people who opt for band-aid anything (babies, pets), which shows the little regard they give to its life and future in their quest to temporarily “fix” something. Two days?? Her mom was out of line. To many people, pets are like family members. It is asinine to view them as things that can be easily replaced as one replaces a favorite handbag or pair of pants.

  19. Isadora says:

    At least a sensible decision. Kudos to that.

    And the pictures of her kissing her dogs tongues are disgusting. Brrr..

  20. Serena says:

    She did the right thing. She wasn’t ready to love a new dog and her mom kinda forced her to do so. Pain needs time to heal.

  21. Mikunda says:

    She’ll get wormies…. she shouldn’t be kissing the dogs, lol. Once you get parasytes it’s extremely hard to get rid of them and your entire digestive system gets destroyed, it will take years before she is better, hope she reads this and reconsiders…

  22. lunchcoma says:

    Perfectly reasonable and responsible on Miley’s part. Terrible decision-making on her mother’s part. Dogs aren’t interchangeable and they all have their own personalities and quirks. Even if Miley wasn’t still grieving, she’s not necessarily compatible with this new dog. Recognizing that she wasn’t the right person to care for it and finding another appropriate home was a good call on her part.

  23. thebutlerdidit says:

    1) ALL of the Cyrus pets come from a shelter, a specific one that they know personally, have worked with for years.
    2) The dog she adopted for Liam, Ziggy, attacked and killed Lila. Ziggy was rehomed in a home w/o other pets/small children.
    3) Floyd was killed when the caretaker, (not naming the person), accidentally left him out, coyotes attacked him. A fairly common, but sad occurrence in that area. Miley has NOT been touring for 4 yrs, so for those who think she spends no time with them, that’s incorrect.
    4) Tish meant well, but it wasn’t a good choice. Miley made sure the new pup has a good home.
    5) Defamer is full of shit of innuendo and no facts.
    6) Some of y’all folks are judgy assholes.
