Rascal Flatts’ Joe Don Rooney Gets a New Puppy

We’ve posted plenty of photos of country stars’ adorable pets, but Joe Don Rooney’s sweet brindle bulldog might win the prize for the cutest puppy ever. The Rascal Flatts guitarist tweeted a photo of the brown ball of wrinkles earlier this week, and even asked his followers to help the Rooney clan pick out a name.

“Sweet new pup added to our Rooney fam! She’s a beautiful Brindle English Bulldog! Plz send us some ideas for a name! :) ” Rooney wrote to his 67K followers.

So far, the Flatts member’s followers have come through with names that range from sweet to… well, a little bit weird. Abigail Jolene, Pudding, Lola, Chocolate Cake and Chloe have all been suggested, but mum’s the word about the young brindle pup’s new name so far.

Unfortunately, Rooney won’t be able to bond with the family dog anytime soon. Rascal Flatts’ Changed Tour 2012 will take the band all over the country with a jam-packed tour schedule that doesn’t end until late October. Luckily, Rooney’s wife and two kids (Jagger, 4, and Raquel, 1) will hold down the fort and take care of the darling dog until Rooney can come home and rest. Perhaps by then she’ll even have a name?
