Who doesn't love a celeb that loves animals? (And a gorgeous celeb, at that.)
Carrie Underwood shared a story that proves she's truly a dog's best friend. It might sound cheesy, but it's for real!
Here's what happened...
The singer pulled over to help suffering dogs on the median of an interstate highway between Oklahoma and Tennessee after paying a visit to her parents' house over the holidays.
"I had Ace and Penny [Underwood's dogs] and a trunk full of luggage and presents in the SUV," she wrote on fan club website on Dec. 30.
The country singer moved one of the dog's "bloody" and "limping" body to her car. Unfortunately, the other dog had died. "My guess is that the dogs were thrown out of their car by their owners on the highway."
Underwood took the injured pooch under her wings for the time being and named her Stella.
After a trip to the emergency vet to get groomed, the CMA Awards host tried to find a permanent home for her little friend.
As of New Year's Day, Carrie reported that Stella was getting house trained, recovering from her road rash and getting her teeth cleaned.
"She follows me around from room to room," Underwood wrote. "She's the best Lab I've ever been around!"
A day later, we learned that Stella had been adopted by some neighbors down the street, "I cried when she walked out the door," Underwood wrote. "[Husband Mike Fisher] told me not to be a crazy ex-girlfriend about it and stalk them...I can't help it! She deserves the best life ever!"
All togethter now: Stellaaaaaa!
