Country Star Miranda Lambert On Why She Adopts So Many Rescue Dogs
Few things can make country star Miranda Lambert’s heart sing like her rescue dogs.
There’s a lot of love at her place.
She has seven rescue dogs!
Lambert tells PawCulture.com that she just has a knack for finding dogs who need to be rescued.
Or maybe it’s the other way around.
Maybe they find her.
Lambert gave the rundown on all her pups to PawCulture.com.
“I have seven rescues and they get along great. Jessi and Waylon (8 years-old) are brother and sister and are both sweet as can be. I found them on the side of the road in Oklahoma when they were about 6-weeks-old. I found Delta Dawn (7 years-old) at a Sonic drive-in covered in fleas and starving. Cher (6 years-old) was adopted from a shelter after they found her in a dumpster when she was 4-weeks-old. I adopted Bellamy from a shelter 3 years ago when he was just a puppy. He, Delta, and Cher have all been on the road with me since they were puppies so they are all pretty chill and love to travel. Thelma and Louise are Great Pyrenees and are sisters and I adopted them in Texas earlier this year.”
She tells ModernDogMagazine.com that dogs have always been as much a part of her life as music has.
“We have never been without pets. I can’t imagine how that would be. Thankfully, I’ll never have to experience that [because I’m] just like my parents, who always had an open door policy; I feel the same way about dogs and animals. If any animal needs a place, [they] can stay here.?
Miranda puts her money, effort and time where her heart is.
Along with her mother, she has created the MuttNation Foudation, encouraging and supporting the adoption of as many rescue dogs as possible.
This pretty much sums up Miranda Lambert:
“All things are possible with dogs and country music.”
