Just a few short days after losing her beloved Yorkie, Lila, Miley Cyrus is forced to make another tearful goodbye to her English Bulldog, Ziggy.
Despite speculation that Lila was sick, Miley’s mother Tish revealed on her blog that the Yorkie’s death was, in fact, caused by Ziggy. The family isn’t certain if Ziggy was playing with Lila or if a tragic fight broke out between the pair, but in the scuffle, Ziggy picked up Lila. The tiny dog didn’t survive.
Tish Cyrus explained to fans,
The way that Lila was taken from her was beyond terrible. Sometimes things happen that we just cant understand. Miley still isn’t ready to talk about it, but I thought you guys should know what happened.
For some unknown reason, Ziggy…….. grabbed Lila. Not really sure if she was playing or what? She grabbed her in just the wrong spot and Lila didn’t survive…………. Please understand that Miley isn’t ready to talk about this and we dont think Ziggy is a mean dog…….. We took Ziggy to SPOT dog rescue and they found her a new home with no other pets or children just in case it wasn’t a fluke. So not only did Miley lose Lila, she feels she lost Ziggy as well.
The entire experience has been devastating to Cyrus, an avid animal lover and dog rescue advocate. Not only is she feeling the sting of losing one beloved pet, she was forced to make a decision that any dog owner would dread, to rehome another.
Ziggy is now living in a new home, without other dogs or children, just in case her aggression wasn’t a single offense.
Miley Cyrus will, without a doubt, continue her efforts to end dog homelessness, but it will take some time for these tragic wounds to heal.
