Pop Star Adopts Husky-mix Puppy
Setting a good example for young fans

Disney starlet Selena Gomez, traveling in tandem with teen sensation and boyfriend Justin Bieber, adopted a 10-week-old Husky-mix from a Winnipeg shelter over the weekend, according to People magazine. We don’t write much about celebrities and their dogs but this sort of high profile adoption is a good thing, especially when it makes an impression on young, devoted followers.

Plus, I love that Gomez adopted a future big dog and a mutt, whom she has named Baylor. Even better, this adoption is not a singular event. The pop singer/actress is a serious rescue advocate with five rescue pups in her pack already.

That said, I do have a reservation or two. She adopted the puppy while on tour, which can’t be the best scenario for settling a dog into a new life. And, as I mentioned, she already has five dogs. Hopefully, there won’t be any issues integrating this newcomer into her crew—normally, that’s something you want to check before completing an adoption. At some point, six is an awful lot of dogs for someone with so many commitments and a CV that’s longer than most folks three times her age.

Still, my guess—and hope—is Gomez has full-time canine care for her pals, plenty of space and resources to keep her pack happy—and that this rescue is as wonderful as it sounds.
