The Oscar-winning actor (54) and human rights barrister (37) adopted a bassett hound Millie from their local animal shelter - the San Gabriel Humane Society.

The shelter shared a photo of the happy couple beaming with their new pet, saying: "It was a happy day at the shelter for Millie!"

"She is a four-year-old Basset Hound mix with gorgeous looks that would land her on any 'Hush Puppies' commercial!"

"Millie was found without a home and hoping for food scraps outside of a local restaurant in San Gabriel earlier this month.

"Today her luck changed for the better when she was adopted by George and Amal Clooney."

The high profile pair, who celebrated their one year wedding anniversary over the summer, already have a cocker spaniel Louie, and introduced the furry friends before adopting.

"They did a ‘meet and greet’ with her and spent time introducing her to their other rescue," San Gabriel's website read. "It was good news that Millie and Louie hit it off and the happy, new family headed home together! We hope Millie will stay in touch and send photos.
