Miranda Lambert Rescues Stray Dog

Dog devotees are singing the praises of canine-loving country crooner Miranda Lambert, who is currently celebrating both the launch of her latest CD “Four the Record” and the arrival of a possible new addition to her fur family.

On October 31, 2011 the Grammy Award winner confided to fans that she had welcomed an abandoned dog into her heart and home. The famous fan of Fidos, who is already Mom to a passel of seven four-pawed pals, Tweeted:

“This wondered up last night. Full blooded 7 month old blood hound. Ophelia is what I named her. Lord not another 1…”

A responsible guardian to her Rovers, the singing sensation took her new tail-wagging chum for a check up, where she received some good news:

“Maybe this little “pumpkin” will be my good luck charm! Vet said she is all good and pretty healthy for a stray. Awww!”

The singer, who climbed to the top of the charts with such singles as “The House That Built Me,” holds the number one spot in the hearts of dog lovers thanks to her organization, Muttnation Foundation. A former volunteer at The Humane Society of East Texas (which is now a no-kill shelter, due in part to the star’s efforts), Ms. Lambert holds a Cause for the Paws concert in Tyler, Texas each year. In 2011 the benefit amassed almost $300,000 for various area shelters.
