Leann Rimes has adopted a puppy.

The 'Can't Fight the Moonlight' hitmaker agreed to care for the eight-month-old abandoned pooch after her friend Karla Hoffman saw him be abandoned in busy Los Angeles traffic on Wednesday (07.11.12).

And the little dog is already a huge hit in the home LeAnn shares with husband Eddie Cibrian and his sons Mason, nine, and five-year-old Jake.

She wrote on her blog: ''We ALL fell in love at first sight. Even our doggies welcomed her instantly.''

Mason has named the puppy Eveie, a moniker LeAnn explained had been ''for his little sister so he says''.

She added: ''Mason says she came just in time for Thanksgiving.

''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!''

LeAnn recently completed a 30-day stay in a rehab facility, where she was treated for stress and anxiety, and said after her release that she felt she had been given the chance to ''star over''.

She said: ''I feel like I am starting over even though I've had all these years behind me. How many people get to [start] over again in this day and age?''
