6 Celebrity Rescue Dogs


We love rescue dogs; no, we love people who rescue dogs.

This is why we love celebrities who go with a rescue dog over any other.

Whichever celebrity it is, when they adopt a rescue dog, they simultaneously raise the profile of all dogs in shelters the world over and the need for them to get a good home.

So we’ve decided to share with you our favorite celebrity rescue pups.

1. Ryan Gosling  and George

Ryan is known for taking his beloved mix breed George everywhere he goes; on sets, around town and even occasionally on the Jimmy Fallon show.

George was rescued by Ryan from a pound in LA when he was a mere puppy, and has grown up to be a true star-studded dog sporting a groovy mohawk and all!


2. Sandra Bullock And Her Girls

Not only does Sandra Bullock adopt unwanted dogs, she also takes home the pooches with special needs.

Her two princesses Poppy and Ruby, the three-legged Chihuahua-Pomeranian mix and the two-legged Chihuahua respectively, have had difficult pasts. Poppy, who lost a leg in an accident, was adopted from a Southern California shelter in September 2005, and Ruby, born with only two legs, was adopted in November 2006.

Sandra herself hasn’t had the happiest puppy history when a decade ago all her dogs died in a plane crash. Horrible!

But today Sandra and her two Chihuahuas (she’s also rumored to have a third, BeBe, but no hard-hit evidence has been found) live in perfect harmony.
