Miranda Lambert performed a show to over ten thousand fans on Saturday, September 21, in Palm Beach, Florida. While there were droves of fans anxiously awaiting the chance to see one of country music's biggest stars onstage, one fan in particular was perhaps excited the most.
Riley Weinberger, a six year old girl, has spent the past few months trying to obtain the attention of Miranda Lambert. Riley is a volunteer at Big Dog Ranch in Wellington, Florida, and is passionate about finding homes for sheltered dogs. She made several YouTube videos and even had billboards put up in hopes of crossing paths with Miranda Lambert, an avid animal lover.
Miranda Lambert granted the wish of the little girl and visited the shelter. Hand-in-hand, Riley gave Miranda a tour of Big Dog Ranch, and shared the problems that the animals faced. Miranda did not leave the shelter empty handed; she ended up adopting one of the dogs from the shelter.
What is the pup's name? Miranda decided to name her new addition Bellamy, after Florida natives The Bellamy Brothers. Fans may donate to Miranda Lambert's MuttNation, a charity dedicated to animal adoption, here.
