Britney Spears accused of toxic move as she buys another puppy

Britney Spears has been slammed by animal rights activists at PETA after she revealed her latest furry edition to her family over on Instagram on Wednesday. 

The 41-year-old shared adorable footage of her newest dog, Snow, to her 42.1 million Instagram followers as she shared a sweet clip of the puppy playing. 

However PETA have accused the star of making a ‘toxic’ move with the purchase of the fifth dog because she chose to buy a new pet rather than rescue one from an animal shelter. 

A rep for PETA told MailOnline ‘When influential people buy puppies, puppy mills cheer and animal shelters watch the homeless-animal crisis get even worse. 

‘With this one cutesy post, Britney Spears has sentenced countless deserving dogs in shelters to more days without love, a comfy bed to curl up on, or a chance at a real life.’

‘She could have been a force for good and adopted, but instead she chose to be toxic, and animals will pay with their lives.’ 

MailOnline has contacted Britney Spears’ reps for comment. 

The star seemed overjoyed with her new furry friend as she uploaded the sweet video of Snow messing around as he sniffed her toes and chewed a baby’s dummy. 

She captioned the post: ‘Introducing Snow … the new edition to the family … it’s her world and we just live in it!!!’

Britney’s newest pet comes after she agreed on a custody arrangement for her other dogs with her estranged husband Sam Asghari as their bitter divorce proceeds.

Britney allowed the dog to hop around on the bed, as it proceeded to climb over her legs and she laid down with it.

Later, Britney showed the dog running around her feet on the ground, which gave a sense of just how tiny the ball of white fluff is. 

She also picked the cute pup up in her arms, and later held her near her phone screen to again show its minuscule size. 

DailyMail.com exclusively revealed last week that the singer had fears that her estranged spouse, 29, might attempt to seize ownership of their two dogs.

But a source told TMZ on Tuesday that the couple have mutually agreed to split up their adopted pooches.

Too cute! ‘Introducing Snow … the new edition to the family … it’s her world and we just live in it!!!’ the singer gushed in her caption

Camouflaged: In her video, little Snow — who could easily be mistaken for a stuffed toy — jumped around on Britney’s bed, where she nearly blended in with the white sheets

Odd choice: Instead of a more traditional dog toy, the Toxic singer revealed that her new dog was chewing on a blue pacifier, as if she as a human baby

Sam now has full custody of a Doberman named Porsha, which he gifted the Piece Of Me singer in October 2021 with the intention of training it to ‘protect’ her.

The dog has been handed over to Sam and he was photographed walking her in Pasadena on Monday. 

Meanwhile, Britney will get to keep the Australian Shepherd named Sawyer that they adopted in March during a trip to Maui.

She will also be responsible for caring for her three smaller dogs, one of which is a yorkie 3 weeks old named Hannah.

It’s unclear if Snow is among those three smaller dogs, or if Britney got her after the rest of the custody was worked out. 

Despite the bitter nature of their divorce, Sam and Britney are said to be happy with the custody arrangement.

Sam filed for divorce from the superstar last month — citing irreconcilable differences — after one year of marriage and five years together.

And in the divorce filing, the actor requested that Britney pay spousal support, and cover his legal fees and court costs, while also asking for ‘separate assets’ and ‘various items.’

A source close to Britney revealed to DailyMail.com on Friday that she feared the ‘separate assets’ and ‘various items’ could include their two adopted dogs.

The Spears family insider revealed that Britney, who has hired the famously ferocious Hollywood divorce attorney Laura Wasser, is confident that her team will be able to shut down any claim Sam might make to her wealth – but that she was gravely concerned that her beloved pups could be at greater risk. 

‘Regarding [Britney and Sam’s shared] property, the most difficult part of dividing any assets will be their two dogs,’ the source explained.

‘But Sam gave Porsha to Britney as a present and she was the one who wanted to adopt Sawyer when they were in Maui.’
