We all know that the last stop before marriage is dog ownership, so can we start squealing yet about a possible engagement for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth? Miley got her on-again-off-again boyfriend a puppy for Liam’s 22nd birthday on Friday, Jan. 13.

Miles teased the gift to her Twitter followers on Liam’s special day, tweeting, “Got Liam THE best bday pressie ever! Thank you for putting the cherry on top and making Liam’s bday a TT!” Avid followers of Smiley might have guessed that the present to her ‘The Last Song’ co-star was a pup, as she makes no secret of her love of dogs.

Today, she made it official by tweeting a photo of a sleeping, brown and white puppy with the caption “Meet Ziggy =].” Awwwwwww! Cutest. Puppy. Ever. She also tweeted that Ziggy is a rescue dog, and she encouraged her fans to follow suit and adopt a pet in need of a home. Miley wrote, “If you live in LA & looking to rescue an adorable pup like Ziggy let me know! I have an amazing rescue! So many pups in need of a mommy!”

The pop star and her boyfriend looked great on the red carpet and backstage at the People’s Choice Awards, and this new addition to their family bodes well for the lovebirds. We’ll no doubt see more of them in 2012, as we get ready for Miley’s new movie ‘LOL.’
