Miley Cyrus rescues an abandoned bulldog… then names her after supermodel Kate Moss
Weeks after showing up at the doorsteps of a North Central Fire Protection District Station covered in fleas, Daisy the bulldog became the 27-year-old singer’s fifth rescue pup.
‘The crews said she was covered in fleas and smelled really bad. You could tell she had been out wandering for quite a while,’ Jacob McAfee, the station’s deputy fire chief, told CNN. ‘It was obvious that she was abandoned or a stray.’
New home: An abandoned dog who captured the hearts of California firefighters in Fresno has been adopted by Miley Cyrus
While a relative of firefighters fostered her for a few months in late April, the pooch was ultimately brought to The Wagmor Hotel and Pet Spa in Los Angeles.
Due to the pooch’s skin, eye issues and hip issues, the organization struggled to find a permanent placement and used social media to spark interest.
Cyrus, who has adopted from the rescue in the past, saw a picture of the abandoned pup on Instagram and texted the adoption agency’s owner, Melissa Bacelar.
‘Literally this dog went from living on a mat in front of a fire station in Fresno to living on Louis Vuitton sheets with Miley,’ the adoption agency’s owner said of the lucky pup
Bacelar says the Grammy nominee texted her that she was ‘obsessed’ and arranged for the dog to meet the dog on the set of her upcoming music video, Midnight Sun.
Despite actively trying to find the dog a placement with several family and friends, Bacelar could tell Cyrus had ‘already started to feel the love.’
‘The star asked to keep the dog for a weekend. A weekend turned into a week, and soon a month,’ the outlet described of the hitmaker, who already owned four other dogs, three cats and a pig.
New name: After rehoming the abandoned pup, Cyrus named the pup Kate Moss
In early August, Cyrus officially renamed Daisy after a famous supermodel.
Miley texted Wagmor’s owner: ‘This dog doesn’t leave my side. I don’t know how I would ever not have her.’ BTW … the dog’s new name is Kate Moss.’
‘Literally this dog went from living on a mat in front of a fire station in Fresno to living on Louis Vuitton sheets with Miley,’ Bacelar said of the pup, who is ‘loving life and getting the royal treatment.’
