Carly Pearce Introduces Adorable New Puppy Following Split From Michael Ray

Carly Pearce is now a dog mom!

The country star turned to social media on Tuesday (June 30) to introduce her fans to her adorable new Shih Tzu puppy named June.

"Hi. Meet June," Pearce captioned the photo of herself holding her new pup. In the comments she revealed the puppy's full name is June Jolene Pearce and that she also considered calling her Dolly.

This marks Pearces first social media post since announcing her divorce with fellow country singer Michael Ray. The "Every Little Thing" singer-songwriter filed for divorce on Friday (June 19), after eight months of marriage, People reports.

"This was a hard decision. It wasn't something she wanted to have to do," a source close to Pearce told the outlet. "This hasn't been a quarantine realization — it was a last resort."

The couple's last public appearance was on June 6, when they both performed without a live audience at the Grand Ole Opry. Ahead of the performance, Ray told People that he and Pearce were splitting their time between their place in Nashville and their families' homes.

"You just drink wine and walk around a small town," he said of their month-long stay in Alabama, where Carly's family lives. "I don't think I've ever walked more in my life. I felt like we were retired. We just didn't have anything else to do but walk."

"It's been a hard time for everybody," he added. "But we've really tried to find the silver lining in it, and go, 'We're not getting out of this, so how do we make the most of it?'"

Pearce and Ray started dating in June 2018 and announced their engagement six months later. They got married on a Nashville-area farm in front of about 100 family members and friends about eight months ago on October 6, 2019.
