Miley Cyrus saves a puppy

Miley Cyrus has a future in animal rescue if this whole Hollywood thing doesn't work out. The actress just added a new four-legged family member on Wednesday: A puppy she rescued from a box outside Walmart.

"He was left in a box in front of Walmart. I don’t understand how people can be so cruel," Cyrus tweeted, along with a picture of the puppy she named Happy. "We’re not 100% [sure] the breed we think Rottweiler Beagle mix :)."

Happy joins the three other dogs — Ziggy, Lila and Floyd — in Cyrus' happy animal family.

"There's times when I think we dont rescue them but they save us. He brings so much [love] into my life. We r BOTH so grateful," the 19-year-old tweeted on Thursday afternoon, along with more pictures of the adorable pup.

"Happy is literally the cutest sweetest thing in the entire world! i haven't put him down since we rescued him!"

The former Hannah Montana star has been getting into animal causes a lot lately — she tweeted for support and donations for animal charities earlier this year and fans responded. Sadly, not all fans had honest intentions.

"Just got told a lot of people saying they're donating aren't telling the truth :( we need to save the animals & lying is hurting them…" she tweeted. "It makes me sad! All I want is 2 save the animals! Lying is hurting them more! I'd rather small amounts of $ than big lies!"

Relax, Miley Cyrus isn't engaged to Liam Hemsworth >>

She also wants to play puppy matchmaker for her celebrity friends, including Khloe Kardashian.

"I want a puppy," Kardashian wrote in March. "I just don't know what kind I want … Hummmmmmmm decisions decisions."

Cyrus was more than willing to help.

"@KhloeKardashian ohhhh let me help you find a rescue :)," she quickly replied. No word if they went animal rescue hopping together yet.

Your musics great but you are absolutely amazing in caring for animals and in my opinion animals show more love and affection than human beings. They don't discriminate you get home they are all over you with no judgement animal affection beats human affection ten fold. Good on you miley.
