George Clooney and wife Amal, Adopt an Adorable Basset Hound from an Animal Shelter


George and Amal Clooney have a new addition to their family - a cute basset hound mix named Millie.

The happy couple adopted the four-year-old rescue pup from San Gabriel Valley Humane Society shelter on Wednesday.

Millie was found homeless and begging for scraps outside a restaurant earlier this month, and was taken in by the shelter.

According to the website, George, 54, and Amal, 37, 'were searching for a basset hound and saw Millie’s picture on Petfinder'.

They also have a Cocker Spaniel, named, Louie, another rescue. They made sure that the two pooches got along before making the adoption official.

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!'

George has made no secret of his love of animals over the years, and is also a pet parent to a cocker spaniel mix named Einstein. 

The senior dog, who the actor says has 'a beautiful life', features in the newly released book My Old Dog: Rescued Pets with Remarkable Second Acts.

George adopted Einstein in 2010, and had been nervous that the pooch wouldn't take to him during their first meeting.

“I start to panic that Einstein is not going to like me,” he previously admitted to Esquire. “So I ran into the kitchen, grabbed some turkey meatballs, and I rub them all over my shoes,” He said.
George has also admitted he had a pet pig named Max who died at the age of 18 in 2006.
