Listen to Miley Cyrus Radio on iHeartRadio

Miley Cyrus has a new canine pal.  Months after the death of her beloved dog Floyd, the star is moving on by welcoming a new puppy into her family. 

She explains on Instagram that while her bond with the late Floyd was "irreplaceable," she's finally "ready" to adopt another pet. 

The singer has named her new Shetland sheepdog Emu Coyne Cyrus.  She is encouraging her Twitter followers to start making accounts for Emu, as they have with her other animals, saying he's "here to stay."  

The star was devastated by the sudden death of Floyd back in April while she was on the road with her "Bangerz" tour.  The dog was rumored to have been killed by a coyote.
