While Dierks Bentley performed on the Today Show last week, he found himself the proud owner of a new puppy. The father of three children and two fur babies already, Dierks was part of a segment about shelter dogs. After peering into the sweet brown eyes of the border collie mix named “Goose” and lovingly holding him and petting him, Dierks couldn’t resist and decided to adopt him.
“I’ve been texting back-and-forth with my wife and kids,” he said during a conversation with Jenna Bush Hager and Willie Geist, while the dog’s adoption paperwork was being taken care of. “They really want a third dog. My wife for her birthday said, ‘All I want is a third dog.’”
“I feel a connection,” he explained. “I feel it’s meant to be.”
The musician said that his three children were already “jumping up and down” with excitement, and so they have decided to fly to Jones Beach for Dierks’ next show to meet the new member of the Bentley family.
