Miley Cyrus tragically lost her two-year-old dog Floyd to a gruesome coyote attack on April 1 — and she’s mourned the pup publicly in the months since. But on June 28, Miley announced that she’s welcomed a new dog named Emu — and he’s “here to stay.”
How adorable is this photo of Miley Cyrus, 21, snuggling up to her new puppy Emu? After losing her dog Floyd almost three months ago, Miley tried to open her heart up to another dog named Moonie, but gave the pup back after admitting she wasn’t ready to be a dog mom again yet. She’s finally ready to open her heart!

Miley mourned Floyd during her Bangerz tour and honored him onstage — and now she’s ready to move forward. Miley posted a photo of herself snuggling up with a fluffy brown-and-white dog on Instagram on June 28. She captioned the photo with this lengthy message:
“time to start making Emu accounts smilers. Hes here and here to stay. I welcomed Emu Coyne Cyrus into the family a couple days ago. Been keepin him a secret cause sometimes I’m weird like that. 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 am trying to do. Never will I replace Floyd and that’s something I had to take time to understand. we had a very special memorial service for Floyd and I felt my angel Floydy give Emu his blessing. I prayed to Floyd to just give him a touch of his awesomeness 🌈 and he has. He is so special and different than my baby Floyd and I think Floyd did that on purpose. But sometimes he does little things that remind me of him and it makes me smile 💖 I’m blissed the out right now ✌️ I feel like this is a new beginning in so many ways. I feel a change coming on”
Wow — we are SO happy to hear Miley talking like this. We can’t remember the last time she seemed this calm, content and happy.
Miley Cyrus: Singer Calls Little Sister The P***y Police
Besides animals, another major source of love in Miley’s life is her little sister Noah Cyrus, 14. In a shocking interview, Miley called her little sister the “p***y police” of her tour! “[Noah’s] the p***y police. She makes sure that everything is staying intact,” Miley spilled about who takes care of her on tour. Maybe now that Miley has Emu, the pup will tag along on tour, too, to keep Miley happy!
