Kellie Pickler's holiday weekend went beyond fireworks and parties. The country singer spent her Independence Day helping a dog.

"A pit bull (at vet) w/broken pelvis & venomous snake bite will be a part of our family if he makes it through the night. Poor lil guy. :(" the singer Tweeted on Monday.

Hours later, she reported that the canine was recovering well and that she planned to bring him home. "Pit bull is Okay. On the way to pick him up now PRAYING he gets along w/our other dogs or we'll have to find him another home," she wrote.

Pickler is mom to a menagerie of pets, including dogs Pixie, Maddie, MooMoo and a python named Boots. Later on Monday, she posted a photo of the pit enjoying the wind in his face as he sat in the front seat of a car.

"Meet our latest rescue 'Chunk!'" she wrote.
