Luke Bryan and his wife, Caroline, are real-life heroes to a special dog who, until recently, was housed at an animal rescue in Nashville. Eighteen-year-old shelter dog, Poochie, was adopted by the Bryans after its owner surrendered it due to becoming allergic.
According to a Facebook post by the shelter, called Proverbs 12:10 Rescue, the Bryan's read about Poochie on social media over the weekend and quickly made moves to adopt him. Lavonne Redferrin, Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue’s director and founder, told People.com, “We are so thrilled for Poochie and know he is in great hands. Caroline Bryan has graciously given us updates on our sweet boy. Their adopting this sweet old guy will allow us the chance to save yet another . . . There is a song somewhere in this story.”
Luke is currently in Los Angeles working on the upcoming season of American Idol. Unfortunately, he won't be able to return home to Nashville in time for Valentine's Day, but he tells us he and Caroline might just have a hot date on the West Coast. [“For Valentine’s Day this year, I’m working every day around Valentine’s. I’m doing Idol. Actually, Idol is filming on Valentine’s Day, and so I have approached Caroline about maybe flying out to L.A. I think we’re gonna have a short taping day at Idol, so maybe we can have a Valentine’s dinner at one of her favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. I’ll try to make it somewhat romantic.”] SOUNDCUE (:31 OC: . . . it somewhat romantic.)
American Idol is set to resume on March 3rd on ABC.
