The 21-year-old singer took to Instagram over the weekend to share the first photos of Shetland Sheepdog puppy Emu. Cyrus' dog Floyd died while she was on tour in April, and she gave away another puppy named Moonie that her mom got her after Floyd's death. The star declared in one of the captions that Emu is "here to stay."
"I welcomed Emu Coyne Cyrus into the family a couple days ago," she writes. "It's taken some time to be ready for this next step and loving again. There will never be anyone like Floyd. There was a bond that was so deep it's irreplaceable but that's not what I'm trying to do ... I feel like this is a new beginning in so many ways."
Cyrus said she and Emu made a "shrine" to Floyd, and that she felt the "angel Floydy give Emu his blessing." She ended "the best day ever" by giving the puppy a bath in her shower.
The singer said it was "just too soon" when she gave away Moonie in April. She and her family have a number of other dogs, including Bean the chihuahua mix and Happy the rottweiler-beagle.
