The Hunger Games hunk, Josh Hutcherson, has just adopted a new rescue dog. OK! talked to Josh about his new pit bull puppy, who he named Driver, and the star tells them the dog was on the verge of euthanasia before Josh took him in as his own. Josh couldn’t be happier about his decision to adopt! Here is an excerpt from the article here:
“He was actually going to be euthanized the day after I got him,” he told OK! at the GLAAD Media Awards in L.A. about his new dog, Driver. “So it was kind of perfect timing how it worked out. There are so many dogs, so many puppy mills and you go to these shelters and you see these beautiful, great dogs that are about to be put down for no reason. And then people buy new dogs and it doesn’t make sense.”
So how is the dog adjusting to his new life with a movie star?
“He is fantastic. He is literally the best puppy that I’ve met in my entire life,” he gushed. “He’s fun when he wants to play and then snuggles up. He’s like the perfect dog. He’s amazing.”
How sweet, I’m so glad the two of them are so happy together! In case you missed it, you can head here to see some pictures of Josh with his pup!
