Miranda Lambert has posted an Instagram video of herself, playing with shelter dogs.

She was overcome with emotion as she played with the dogs.  “I encourage you to keep an open mind if you’re looking for a new pup,” she wrote, across the top of the clip.  “These dogs have a harder time finding homes: pit mixes, senior dogs, big black dogs, dogs with disabilities.”

The founder of Mutt Nation advised, “They have so much love in them…  and they just need us to love them a lil bit harder.

Fans praised Lambert for her big heart for the canines, and for sharing the news about adoption.

Miranda has several rescue pets, whom she often shares pictures of, on social media.
