Britney Spears has revealed she’s still “attracted to dogs” despite being attacked by two when she was young.
The singer, 40, admits that after the childhood incident, she had to “get to know animals” before approaching them.
But now she absolutely loves animals and has just added an adorable pooch to the family.
The pop superstar recently revealed the latest addition to her family to her Instagram followers after announcing that she is now the proud owner of a white Australian Shepherd puppy named Sawyer.
She described the pup as “incredibly valuable” in a sweet post.
Taking to the social media page to make her announcement, she wrote: “Thanks for dogs! Dog spelled backwards is God…not sure if there’s a correlation, but I think dogs are extraordinary animals!
“Even though I’ve been attacked by 2 dogs in my life…I’m still attracted to them!”
Britney revealed she was attacked by a cocker spaniel when she was eight and said the animal “clawed, bitten and barked” at her until she was forced to climb on the hood of a car to escape.
In the second incident, the star was 16 and was confronted by a friend’s dog. She claimed it “bited a hole in my leg and a huge hole in my jeans.”
Britney continued, “Since then I have to learn about animals before I really get close to them… I have several small animals and my baby is so cute… I’ve never heard them bark!!!
“My dogs are incredibly valuable.”
The latest addition is the star’s latest step away from the conservatorship that ruled her life for 13 years. The legal order ended last November and Britney has been making up for lost time since.
She is currently engaged to actor Sam Asghari, 28, and the couple spends time in luxurious places while enjoying life to the fullest.
The singer has admitted she’s ready to start a family with her boyfriend, who she has been with since 2016.
Earlier this month, she uploaded a romantic snap of the happy couple standing in front of a beautiful ocean sunset, captioning the pic: “Happy birthday to my fiancé…I love you so much…I want a family with you…I want everything with you!!!!”
And Sam was quick to respond, saying: “A million things to wish for. I have just one wish.”
Britney currently has two teenage children with her ex Kevin Federline – Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15.
