Billy Bush Adopts a Rescue Dog

One Tinseltown tail-wagger’s moment in the spotlight on the set of Access Hollywood Live has led to a starring role in the lives of entertainment news show host Billy Bush and his family.

Former Dancing with the Stars contestant Chelsea Kane, who took part in the kick off of Pedigree dog food’s month-long “Every Dog Deserves” campaign, which will provide shelters across the country with 100,000 lbs. of dry dog food in the month of June, recently appeared on the syndicated news program with a few furry friends from The Amanda Foundation, a Beverly Hills-based rescue which received the first 10,000 lbs. of Pedigree dog food distributed during the current food drive.

Recognizing star quality when he sees it, Billy Bush instantly fell for the charms of Tina, a chihuahua/pug mix puppy, who now has a permanent place in both in the heart and home of the radio/TV host.

Tiny Tina (who has since been dubbed Mimi by Billy Bush’s daughters) may now has a playmate in her new family’s canine companion Peyton, but her siblings Tiger, Tracy, Turner and Tony are still waiting at The Amanda Foundation for someone to love.
