George And Amal Clooney Adopt Rescue Dog
George Clooney and his wife Amal have adopted a rescue dog from a shelter in California.
The Hollywood actor and his lawyer wife picked up a basset hound mix named Millie from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society shelter on Wednesday.
The dog was found begging for scraps outside a local restaurant before being taken in by the shelter.
Bosses of the center have shared a picture of the couple with their new addition and thanked them for taking the pooch in.
“It was a happy day at the shelter for Millie!” a statement from the shelter read. “Millie was found without a home and hoping for food scraps outside of a local restaurant in San Gabriel earlier this month. Today her luck changed for the better when she was adopted by George and Amal Clooney… They were searching for a basset hound and saw Millie’s picture on (adoption website) Petfinder. They did a ‘meet and greet’ with her … and the happy, new family headed home together!… Congratulations to the Clooney family and thank you for adopting!”
The couple also has a rescued cocker spaniel mix named Einstein and cocker spaniel named Louie, and George is a well-known animal-lover and spent 18 years as the owner of a pot-bellied pig named Max, who died in 2006.
He previously cited Max as “the longest relationship of my life”, adding, “It’s strange how animals become a big part of your family. They really become a big issue with you.”
Clooney also revealed how Max once took a flight in John Travolta’s private jet, joking, “(He) absolutely loved it.”
