George Clooney and his wife Amal adopted a cute basset hound by the name of Millie! Congratulations on the new addition to the family!
The Clooneys were looking for a basset hound like Millie on Petfinder and stopped in at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society to have a meeting with their cocker spaniel Louie to see if Millie was a good fit.
The shelter wrote on its website, “It was a happy day at the shelter for Millie! She is a four-year-old Basset Hound mix with gorgeous looks that would land her on any ‘Hush Puppies’ commercial!”
The website also reported that 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.”
The site added, “They did a ‘meet and greet’ with her and spent time introducing her to their other rescue. 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!”
I love it when celebrities adopt shelter pets; it brings so much awareness to those pets who are in need of a good home.
