Awwww! This is so cute! I love hearing happy stories about rescue pets being adopted. Especially when it’s people who can afford to buy an expensive pedigree dog and rather choose to save a life. Congrats to the Clooney family!
Here is a clip from the article in US Magazine:
Found a home for this hound! George Clooney and his wife, Amal Alamuddin, adopted a sweet shelter dog named Millie on Wednesday, Oct. 28.
The happy couple stopped by the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society in San Gabriel, Calif., where Millie — a short-legged, long-eared basset hound with googly eyes — adorably awaited their love.
"It was a happy day at the shelter for Millie!" the shelter wrote on its website on Wednesday. "She is a four-year-old Basset Hound mix with gorgeous looks that would land her on any 'Hush Puppies' commercial!"
According to the website, Milie was homeless up until several weeks ago. "Millie was found without a home and hoping for food scraps outside of a local restaurant in San Gabriel earlier this month," the post revealed. "Today her luck changed for the better when she was adopted by George and Amal Clooney."
The Clooneys, meanwhile, were already in search for a basset hound like Millie, whose photo they came actress on pet search-engine Petfinder. On Wednesday, they brought along their adopted cocker spaniel Louie to meet Millie, and potentially see if they could get along.
"They did a ‘meet and greet’ with her and spent time introducing her to their other rescue," the site shared. "It was good news that Millie and Louie hit it off and the happy, new family headed home together! We hope Millie will stay in touch and send photos. Congratulations to the Clooney family and thank you for adopting!"
