COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A local dog that no one seemed to want was just adopted by some famous Tri-Staters.
Nate the dog was rescued from his former owner, described as a hoarder who kept more than 20 dogs — all bigger and stronger than Nate, who was born with a birth defect in his leg.
“He was comatose,” said Carol Roberts’, who took Nate into her rescue operation, Luvfurmutts. “He was nothing but bones, not being strong enough to fight for his own food.”
Because of his physical condition, Roberts didn’t think Nate would ever find his forever home.
That was until she got a phone call from a woman who called herself “Angel,” saying “I’m calling for George Clooney from George’s house in England.”
As it turns out, Clooney and his wife, Amal, had been watching Nate’s video online from across the pond. They wanted to adopt Nate for Clooney’s parents, Nick and Nina, who live in Augusta.

“To say we were startled was an understatement,” Roberts said.
It was a Hollywood ending for a little dog who Nick insists adopted them.
Watch in the video player above to hear from Nick Clooney, who spoke with WCPO's Scott Wegener by phone Monday, about what adopting Nate means to them.

Maybe they just wanted a companion for their dog. After all, George and Amal have three dogs now (or is it four?). I guess they're fans of multiple dog families.

This one's a real cutie!

That could well be it.

In any case, I think the dog that Nick Clooney used to write about all those years ago is long gone.

This article explains it a bit more. Nick and Nina's terrier of ten years had died recently (is that the dog you talked about?), and George and Amal found this dog for them, showed them the video and had Nate delivered to them at christmas.

I think the fog Katie was referring to Nick writing about was Spags. I'm sure that dog is long dead since the columns are from the early 2000's. I found a link to a web archive and posted in the section for Nick's columns.

PAN,
thanks for the article!
It's really silly but the photos are good.
When I watched the photos of George's and Amal's visit to Augusta last summer I thought why I had never seen any of previous family reunions before, now I know: Because I hadn't been at COH at that time!

Nate looks like Spags !
Maybe a reincarnation ?  

Happy Life to Nate !  sunny

pan...I've seen recent pictures with both Nina and Nick
holding a little dog after the " Spags period."
They always look similar to Nate so maybe that's the type of dog they love.

Because before Amal, hardly any of his visits "home" were publicized.
