Awwww alert: MKG adopts a shelter puppy

The Charlotte Bobcats have released a video of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist adopting a puppy from the Charlotte Humane Society. Click the pic above to watch. It’s by far the cutest thing you’ll see today. Including kids if you have them. Seriously, just look:


The puppy is almost smaller than his hand, y’all.

From being abandoned in the Humane Society parking lot to living with one of the top players in the NBA. Lucky pup.

    Reason #167 to miss MKG this season.

  9. Awww, the yellow lab/golden retriever (mix?) reminds me of our golden (and another one we used to have). (sigh)

    give a man a pet to care for to see how he truly is as a human.

    Elsewhere in Charlotte some other “trampy bit&$” is mad because he just got harder to trap.

    I’m not sure it’s possible for me to like MKG more than I already do.

    My wife wanted me to thank you for choosing to adopt rather than buy! You will be so happy with your new baby! Congratulations…

    #17, with MKG’s wealth, he can hire a “doggy nanny” to pamper his pooch while he is on the road.

    #9, yep, that one reminds me of our lab mix, Goldie. She is 13 now, and she is darn near perfect – can leave her in the house all day while at work if we have to, and she doesn’t bother anything. (But she will sometimes sneak onto our bed for a nap. 🙂 )

  21. 20, our golden is a great & very loving dog, but I can’t say she doesn’t bother anything. She likes to chew so we have to keep all trash lids closed and take house slippers from her sometimes. lol

    So happy to see MKG adopt a rescue puppy. Shelters are full of animals just waiting to be adopted. If you are looking for a furry friend, do not buy from a puppy store (they are from puppy mills). Just ask yourself WWMKGD and go to your local shelter.

    How sweet!! I always knew MKG had a big heart!! Love him!

  24. 22, amen. All our dogs have come from the shelter!

    That dog will live a great life with everything it wants. But I don’t think Obama’s dog lives as good as mine. He nvr gets left alone and eats lobster steak chicken porkchops etc. He likes most veggies especially if u fry it n Bacon grease. Sleeps on over cushioned leather furniture or in his queen size bed!!!! You couldn’t run the big brown 120 lb chocolate lab off we’ve created a monster!

    I said when he gave up his starting postition to Darius and I will say it again: MKG is a fantastic young man that was obviously raised well. His mother must be very proud. Miss you MKG, miss you!

    how could you love MKG more? he could have bought the world’s most expensive dog and instead, he rescues a puppy from the CHS . I love the pic of the puppy licking his face! that little fella has fallen into the honey pot. I am happy for both of them.
