Dierks Bentley and his family have a new dog, but they haven't chosen a name for her just yet.
Even superstar country singers adopt - just ask Dierks Bentley. Bentley and his family recently adopted a new dog from the Nashville Humane Association. Bentley filmed a short video as the family left with their new pup, posting it to Instagram and explaining that they'd gotten the dog in about 10 minutes, but hadn't yet had time to come up with a name.
Dierks Bentley is a known animal lover; he took to Instagram last month to write a goodbye message to Jake, his previous dog who passed away. It looks like the family has taken some time to grieve, and is once again ready to welcome in a new four-legged family member.
Take a look at the touching video Dierks posted below.
In the video's caption, Bentley notes that the family's other dog, George, has been missing Jake.
Dogs can form strong attachments to each other, so when one dog passes away, you may notice that your other dog has a hard time. While it's important to give your dog some time to grieve his friend, getting another dog can also help him to heal, just like it helps us to open up our hearts again.
We'll bet that Bentley's daughters will be able to come up with plenty of creative names for the family's new dog. It's great to see that Bentley is so public with the family's decision to adopt a dog; with so many shelters overcrowded with dogs, every adoption helps. Bentley's decision might motivate some other people to consider adoption, rather than purchasing dogs at pet stores.
