Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks opened their hearts and home to another fur child. The country music stars adopted a sweet puppy from Maury County Animal Services this past weekend.
Trisha posted on Instagram a photo of her and the new pup, Millie. Millie will join the couple’s other dog, Emmy in their Tennessee home. The black and white puppy is absolutely adorable and thousands of followers congratulated the family on their new addition.
Aside from announcing the exciting news, Trisha promoted adopting and animal rescue, “Introducing Millie, our new rescue! (Emmy’s still not quite sure what happened 🐶 🐶) In the spirit of #GivingTuesday let’s bring awareness to the importance of #petadoption & #animalrescue. Millie was the ONLY dog adopted Saturday from #MauryCountyAnimalServices. You can save a life, have a new best friend and give a homeless pet a forever home at the same time. Who knows, you might even adopt one of Millie’s siblings! xoxo #AdoptDontShop”.
Pictures of Millie running with her tongue out and one of her napping next to her new canine sibling accompanied the post. With over 6 million homeless dogs and cats, it is nice to see people promoting adopting. Adopt don’t shop!
Volunteers drove to area and spent five days trying to locate her. They finally spotted her right near a train. The loud noise from the trains passing by scared her, so she ran and hid under a dumpster.
One volunteer reached underneath the dumpster with a long snare to try and get it around the dog’s head, while another volunteer used a pole from the other side to guide the dog’s head so she wouldn’t run away. They eventually got the snare around her, and she started whining and fighting back.
In the video below, a toddler walks up to a sleeping pit bull and gives him a giant kiss. While some people may be uneasy about letting a baby get that close to a pit bull, the dog barely moves. Instead when he sees the baby smile, this “vicious” dog attacks the baby…with kisses! There’s no doubt that this baby and pit bull will be best friends for life.
If you’ve ever loved a pit bull, or owned one, you know they are caring and beautiful dogs — and are great with kids — as long as they’re raised in a loving home.
