Kyle Chandler adds new shelter pup to family

Actor Kyle Chandler added a new shelter dog from a familiar location to his family as a result of fostering during the coronavirus pandemic.

Actor Kyle Chandler is the latest celebrity to adopt a shelter dog during this time of coronavirus pandemic.

According to People Magazine, the Friday Night Lights star adopted a shelter dog from Austin Pets Alive! (exclamation point theirs), which he had previously gotten at least one other dog from at some point in the past. Since FNL was filmed in the Austin area (often the suburb of Pflugerville, where the RUSH! Flyball club is based), it was probably during his time as Coach Eric Taylor on the NBC’s cult-classic Texas-set high school drama that this occurred (it ran from 2006 to 2011, and would be a great binge watch while stuck at home).

This news was announced earlier in the week by Austin Pets Alive! on Instagram.

From that picture, the smallish black and tan dog, Clive, looks to possibly have some Chihuahua in there, or maybe Miniature Pinscher.

Chandler and his wife Kathryn were intending to simply foster him, but fell in love so much that they had to officially add him to the family.

Chandler is also known for lead roles in the TV shows Early Edition and Bloodline, and a supporting role in JJ Abram’s 2011 movie Super 8.

Other celebs who have adopted pets recently include singer/actress Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana, Dear John), Skyler Samuels (The DUFF, The Gifted) and Lili Reinhart (Riverdale).

Those famous people temporarily taking in foster dogs include singer Selena Gomez and Antoni Porowski of Queer Eye.

According to our FanSided Network sister site FoodSided, Busch Beer is also hoping to increase fostering and adoption of shelter pets with the incentive of a three-month supply of free beer.
