The Clooneys have added a new member to their family! And no, it's unfortunately not a baby. It's an adorable Basset Hound named Millie that George and Amal rescued from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society!
Turns out that when superstar couples look for pets, they do so like the rest of us — on Petfinder! According to the shelter's website, George and Amal were searching for Basset Hounds on Petfinder to add to their brood (they currently have two rescue cocker spaniels), when they landed on Millie.
"They were searching for a basset hound and saw Millie's picture on Petfinder," the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society said on their website. "They did a 'meet and greet' with her and spent time introducing her to their other rescue, a cocker spaniel named Louie. It was good news that Millie and Louie hit it off and the happy, new family headed home together!"
The Clooneys are notorious animal lovers. In a 2010 interview with Esquire, Clooney even mapped out how he decided to win his dog Einstein over when he came over to see if they got along. "I start to panic that Einstein is not going to like me. So I run into the kitchen, where I have these turkey meatballs, and I rub them all over my shoes," Clooney explained at the time. "This woman opens the door, and who knew Einstein was such a food whore on top of everything? He throws himself at my feet. She says, 'I've never seen him react like that, ever!' And she left him with me on the spot. And forever, now, he just thinks of me as the guy with meatball feet. He loves me. I can do no wrong. He follows me everywhere."
Now, they're an adorable family of 5! Congrats to the Clooneys!
