We were all heartbroken to learn that Dierks Bentley’s best friend, Jake, passed away in July.

“Jake’s been with me through every phase of my career, since before I had a publishing deal … before I even had a gig, really,” Bentley said about Jake to a group of reporters. “When I got my first gigs downtown, he’d be waiting there in the windowsill. He actually wore out a little spot in the couch where he’d wait for me. I’d come home real late, and he’d be there sitting in the window, putting in his time. Those were his years of grinding, sitting in the window waiting for me.”

rest in peace pal

Jake was suffering from cancer and being treated with chemotherapy when he passed.

Since losing Jake, the family dog, George, has been lonely, so the Bentley family picked up a new friend for George!

“Our other dog George has been lonesome since Jake left us…” Dierks posted to a video on Instagram. “Thanks @nashvillehumane @HumanSociety. Need a name!”

That is one lucky pup, who will definitely have a loving home!

We hope she loves country music 🙂
