Britney Spears to buy a $5,000 dog?

The singer, who is an animal lover, may shell out $5,000 for a dog

Pop star Britney Spears and her boyfriend went shopping for a new puppy and the former fell in love with a $5,000 teacup Yorkie, named Micro Diamond.

The 32-year-old and Lucado went shopping Thursday at Star Yorkie in the San Fernando Valley area. They are expected to return to the pet shop to buy the puppy, reports a website.

The pet shop’s owner said the couple was friendly. She was in a great mood and seemed happy playing with the puppies. “They left empty-handed, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they come back for Diamond,” the owner said.

Britney, who has sons, Sean, eight, and Jayden, seven, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, is an animal lover. She adopted a Yorkie and a Maltese from the same pet shop in the past.
