Fans of country crooner Hunter Hayes have been singing the recording artist’s praises since he shared the happy news that he has adopted a second rescue dog.
Just weeks after wishing a happy birthday to his barking buddy Cole (a rescue from the Nashville chapter of Greyhound Pets of America) via social media, the chart-topper gave the retired racing greyhound the gift of a four-legged sibling as he welcomed Ella into his heart and home. A whippet/beagle with an adventurous spirit, Ella found her famous father while in the care of Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue, a primarily all volunteer non-profit in Middle Tennessee which united 934 dogs and 187 cats with loving families in 2016.
Hunter Hayes isn’t the first high-profile friend of Fidos to adopt from Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue. Dan Smyers from the country music duo Dan + Shay, who has volunteered at the non-profit, is a proud pet parent to two dogs from the rescue organization, and adoptable Spots from Proverbs 12:10 had the chance to lap up the limelight as stars in the music video for Dan + Shay‘s single, “Nothin’ Like You.”
