“It’s really intimidating, yeah. But that’s kind of why I did it,” he said.

SHELTER DOGS AT SUNDANCE
Josh Duhamel had lots of admirers at one Sundance party — but this time they were of the four-legged kind.
The actor mingled with dogs of different varieties at an event to promote adoption of shelter dogs sponsored by Pedigree.
“I’m here mostly to help spread the word about animal rescue. If you’re looking for a dog or a cat just consider, you know, rescuing. If you’re serious about it,” Duhamel said. “We don’t want anybody getting a dog just because they love the idea of it.”??
The actor says he first became aware of how rewarding it is to rescue a pet rather than buy one from a breeder or pet store when he and wife Fergie adopted a second dog named Meatloaf as a companion for their first dog, Zoe.
“It wasn’t until we got Meatloaf, who was a chubby, little dachshund mix. We had a dog before that who we bought from a breeder, who is a great little dog,” Duhamel said. “Then we found Meatloaf as a friend for her and that was kind of the turning point for me. I was like, ‘Why didn’t we do this from the beginning and why doesn’t everybody do this?”
Meatloaf died two years ago and Duhamel says his family at home is “just Zoe, me, wifey and the baby now.”
Fergie gave birth to the couple’s first child in August — a son named Axl.« Previous Page Next Page »
