Miranda Lambert feels "heartbroken" after two of her pets passed away.

The 40-year-old singer has taken to Instagram to reveal that two of her rescue dogs, Delta Dawn and Louise, both died recently.

Alongside some throwback photos of her dogs, Miranda wrote on Instagram: "In the last 6 weeks two of the best and most loyal friends I have ever had have left this earth

"I'm so heartbroken to have lost them, to love this big you have to hurt just as big, they are worth it. (sic)"

Miranda recalled that Delta Dawn was "homeless and hungry" when she first saw her.

The award-winning star added: "Little did I know when I was trying to just get a cherry limeade, I would meet one of the most amazing dogs I would ever know.

"She was on almost every tour I've ever been on I'm honored to have met her and learned so much from her. (sic)"

Miranda subsequently recalled rescuing Louise and her sister Thelma back in 2016.

She said: "The first day I ever brought them to the farm in TN, they were right at home. I have mini horses, chickens and goats and I needed them for protection for the critters. And boy did they do the job. (sic)"

Despite her heartbreak, Miranda encouraged her followers to consider adopting a pet themselves.

The 'Famous in a Small Town' hitmaker - who has more than four million followers on Instagram - explained: "I want yall to know that I’m an advocate for rescue because I live it out and everyday I am blessed with the joy of having these animals in my life. And then some days, like today, I’m so heartbroken to have lost them. (sic)"
