Kellie Pickler spent her weekend rescuing a pit bull. The dog was found by Pickler over the weekend with a broken pelvis and had been bitten by a venomous snake.
Pickler took the dog to the vet and told her Twitter followers on July 3: "A pit bull (at vet) w/broken pelvis & venomous snake bite will be a part of our family if he makes it through the night. Poor lil guy. :("
Pickler updated her fans of the dog situation on July 4, when she tweeted: "*Update* Pit bull is Okay. On the way to pick him up now PRAYING he gets along w/our other dogs or we'll have to find him another home."
She then posted a picture of the dog as he sat in the front seat of her car on the way home and revealed his name: "Meet our latest rescue 'Chunk!'"
Pickler owns various other pets, including dogs Pixie, Maddie, and MooMoo as well as a python called Boots. The former American Idol contestant will be performing at the Hodag Country Festival this Friday in Rhinelander, Wisconsin.
