On Wednesday, Oct. 28, the couple adopted a 4-year-old shelter dog from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society in San Gabriel, California. The cute basset hound is named Millie, and the shelter announced the good news via its website.
“Despite those adorable googly eyes, pretty long ears, and shorty legs, Millie was found without a home and hoping for food scraps outside of a local restaurant in San Gabriel earlier this month,” the shelter wrote on its website. “Today her luck changed for the better when she was adopted by George and Amal Clooney.”
The shelter went on to reveal that the couple were looking for basset hounds and found the sweet pooch while browsing the pet adoption site Petfinder. They then did a “meet and greet” with Millie and their other rescue dog, a cocker spaniel named Louie — and things clearly went well because Millie is now part of the Clooney-Alamuddin household.
Adopting a dog is definitely the way to go. Congratulations to Clooney and Alamuddin on the new addition to their family.
