LeAnn Rimes Adopts Abandoned Dog

LeAnn Rimes has added a new member to her family-an abandoned pooch that was stranded on a busy street in Los Angeles. According to theboot.com, the country star swooped in to the rescue after seeing a photo tweeted by her close friend Karla Hoffman.

The dog weighs about five-pounds and is eight months old. Speaking with people.com, LeAnn said it was an easy decision for the family to keep the pup:

"We ALL fell in love at first sight. Even our doggies welcomed her instantly," she said adding: "She's brought a ton of joy into our home in just the few hours she's been with us. Eveie has a new home and family and we have a new love!"

The dog is the newest edition to LeAnn's household with husband/actor Eddie Cibrian.
