My lil’ fur baby’s name is Potato, and I adopted him in April from an LA based animal rescue called the Lange Foundation
. I am a comedic actress, so I’m home a lot of the time when I’m not working, and I knew I wanted to adopt a rescue pup.
Potato was roaming the streets of Santa Monica when he got hit by a car. A good Samaritan brought him into the Santa Monica animal shelter, and Lange Foundation got a hold of him from there. He healed up well but had to be put in isolation while he healed so he didn’t over exert himself.
Po, as I call him for short, is still a bit timid around strangers, especially men, but he’s come a long way. He’s very smart and has learned a lot of tricks, and he LOVES other dogs and his two cat sisters, who are bigger than he is, by the way.
