Justin Bieber announced the newest addition to his family on Instagram last night, a four legged furry pal named Esther.

Whether coincidentally or not, the singer introduced the adorable pooch to the world on National Puppy Day with the caption “Say hello to the newest member of the bieber family #Esther.” The brown and black puppy, which appears to be a Yorkshire terrier, is shown nestled in Bieber’s arms in two separate photos which have been liked by more than 1.7 million Instagrammers and compelled more than 50,000 people to comment.

The 21 year old singer has found himself adept at handling Comedy Roasts and baring his abs for underwear campaigns but Bieber has not had the best track record when it comes to looking after his pets. First there was Johnson the snake that he carried at the MTV Movie Awards in 2011. After his 15 minutes of fame, Johnson found himself on the auction block, with proceeds going towards Bieber’s charity Pencils of Promise. Next was his hamster Pac who was given to a fan during a concert. Mally the capuchin monkey was abandoned when Bieber entered Germany without any of the necessary paperwork and Karma, the pooch Justin owned with his dad Jeremy was never picked up from a trainer.

 

Hopefully Esther will have a fate more similar to Sammy, the Bieber family’s family dog that passed away in December 2014. In a throwback Instagram post, Bieber referred to Sammy as the “best puppy ever.”

“We adopted her from @animalleague, so since she’s a rescue we’re not exactly sure age/breed,” Williams wrote. “They think 10 weeks and Golden mix. My heart bursts for this lady. Even when she wakes me up at night. #ObviNoFilter #SoTired #SoWorthIt.”
