Nate the terrier became part of the loving Clooney family -- Yes, you read that correctly, the George Clooney.


Nate has a birth defect in one of his legs, which has made his adoption quite difficult. In a recent Facebook post by LuvFurMutts Animal Rescue, they've explained the lengths they gone to help Nate find a forever and loving home.

"When we took Nate to adoption events, people would stare and kids would point. Several people applied to adopt him but then said no when they met him. He was with us 9 months. The lowest point came when an adopter cried when she met him and said she would be depressed the rest of her life if she had to look at him every day."

Much to the surprise of the animal rescue, George and Amal Clooney have been following Nate's story online! The Hollywood A-Listers adopted Nate for George's parents as a Christmas present. Having recently lost their terrier of 10 years, it was a perfect fit.

The post goes on to praise the Clooney for accepting Nate just the way he was.

"What is impressive is the fact that George picked Nate out and Nick and Nina accepted Nate just the way he is. They could have any dog in the world but they chose to adopt a dog who was crippled and could have been with LuvFurMutts for life."

Nate is now happy and healthy living with Nick and Nina Clooney in Kentucky! Check out the whole Facebook post below.
