Miley Cyrus should update her resume to note that she’s a singer, actress and animal rescuer extraordinaire.

Whether it’s adopting a pup for boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, taking care of her own rescue dogs or offering to help Khloe Kardashian find a rescue pup of her own, Cyrus is dedicated to giving good homes to the animals at the shelter.

In her latest rescue effort, the singer didn’t even have to go to the shelter. A pup was left in a box outside of Walmart, so Cyrus brought him home.

She tweeted, “he was left in a box Infront of Walmart. I don’t understand how people can be so cruel. That’s why we named him Happy.”

They aren’t sure about his breed but she noted that she thinks Happy is a Rottweiler Beagle mix. What we do know for sure? Happy is one lucky pup to have been rescued by such a dedicated dog lover.

The actress then went on to post a bunch of pictures of the new addition to her family. This was our favorite. (For full cuteness impact, please note that he is sitting in her purse.)
