She adopted the pit bull two months after the death of her beloved pit mix Mary Jane.
In it, she quotes the lyrics of the song "I Thought I Lost You," which she recorded for the 2008 Disney animated movie Bolt: "I hoped in my heart you’d come back to me my friend. And now I got you... But I thought I lost you.”
She goes on to write that after losing Mary Jane, "I knew she wasn’t gone for good. She had out lived the body she was in but she never said goodbye ..... with her eyes she whispered 'See you soon Bestie.'"
"I feel her here with me blessing this new member to my family whose name is 'Angel' because she was delivered to me by one...My Mary," Cyrus continued in the post.
The singer, who noted that Angel was in a shelter for three months, gushed, "Not sure I will ever sleep again because I can’t take my eyes off of her! Her halo shines for all to see and I can’t wait to show her off! It’s pretty cool having an Angel on a leash! She is illuminated by the aura of the late and great Mary Jane. Long live love."
Cyrus also mentioned the negative rep pit bulls get.
"The stigma and stereotype that surrounds pit bulls tears me in two," she wrote. "This breed is incomparably loving. Just like humans nurture often overrides nature."
