At just 6 months old, “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth’s newly adopted puppy stands almost as tall as him. The actor’s former fiancé, animal lover Miley Cyrus, is getting credit for helping connect him with the dog, who he rescued from Wylder’s Holistic Pet Center in California. Hemsworth shared a photo of himself with his new pal on Instagram, with the caption, "New ‘gigantic’ rescue pup! Dora the Explorer." The rescue group also posted a picture of the duo, writing, “Thanks @mileycyrus for loving dogs as much as we do!! You helped find this gigantic, 6 month old puppy a new home. @liamhemsworth you will give this deserving baby a great life!” — See photos at Today
