Sounds like a weird story but, with the help of some meatballs, George Clooney has adopted a dog.
Clooney saw a video of a poor, pound puppy on an animal shelter's website, and he immediately fell for the dog.
He had to have him.
So he contacted the animal shelter about taking home Einstein the dog. The shelter said sure… as long as Einstein liked him.
Clooney was already in love with the dog, so he had to cook up a plan that would ensure the dog would like him.
"Einstein is part cocker spaniel or something. I got him out of a shelter about a year and a half ago . . . So I go online and see Einstein. They had a whole film about him. It was actually really sweet. You see him all beat up in the shelter, and they show how they cleaned him up.
So I called and said, ‘I like Einstein!’ The woman goes, ‘Well, we don’t know if Einstein will like you.’ ‘Well, can I meet with Einstein?’ She says, ‘Yes, we’ll bring him to your house, but if he doesn’t like you, he can’t stay. We have to have good homes for these dogs.’ She sounded very serious.
I have this really long driveway, and I open the gate for them, and 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. 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."
What a cute story.
We're sure they're best buds!
