Bradley Cooper’s Hung Up on His Rescue Dogs

Written by PETA | June 23, 2009

What is the number-one thing that you need to know about hilarious hottie Bradley Cooper?

I’ll give you a hint: His steely blues and that off-kilter smile don’t have anything to do with it.

Bradley Cooper


“I have two beautiful dogs … I cherish. Samson is a 14-year-old German short hair pointer and Charlotte is a 6 or 7 year-old Chow Retriever mix. They are both rescue dogs and they are the best … I’m sort of a hybrid of both my dogs. Samson is stoic and makes me earn it and Charlotte loves me undyingly. They’re my kids.”

There are four other “must know” items on, but learning that the star of The Hangover is making room in his heart and his home for a few of the 8 million dogs and cats who are abandoned at animal shelters each year is more than enough to make this gal swoon.

    Brandy We are not opposed to people who have the desire time and patience to take good care of an animal and who rescue homeless strays or adopt animals from a shelter. In fact most PETA staff members live with animals who have been rescued from abuse or abandonment.

  • Brandy says:

    I thought PETA was against all pet ownership if that is the case what would make having an excess of companion animals as pets alright?
