Dierks Bentley visited the set of the Today show last week and he left with a new family member after adopting an adorable new puppy during an on-camera segment called Dogust.
Bentley was originally on hand to perform as part of the Today Citi Concert Series, and he also joined the Today hosts for an interview about his upcoming Seven Peaks Music Festival, his family and more.
He was assigned an adorable Border Collie mix pup named Goose to hold during the Dogust segment, which is geared toward encouraging people to adopt shelter dogs during the month of August, the default month of birth for all shelter dogs whose birthdate is unknown. It was love at first sight for the country star, who ended up adopting the cuddly pooch right on the spot.

Well…. the last thing I was expecting to happen today. But feel like it was meant to be. Welcome to the family Goose/Garrett (there was some confusion on which of the brothers he was….). That’s a wrap on @todayshow. Thanks….I think?! Off to @petco and then meet up with #burningmantour
