"Happy to introduce the newest member of my family Barbie," Cyrus captioned the first Instagram shot of her new canine cutie.

The 23-year-old singer included the hashtags #stopanimaltesting and #donttestonbeagles — to address the fact that beagles are the dog breed most commonly used in laboratory testing —and tagged the rescue organization Beagle Freedom.

Cyrus and her new pooch struck a fresh-faced pose together in a selfie.
