LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A rescued dog may be the most famous pup in Kentucky thanks to the couple that adopted him. 

According to the rescue agency's Facebook page Nate the Terrier was adopted by George and Amal Clooney; but for the Clooneys, Nate was actually a Christmas gift.

The couple arranged for Nate to be delivered on Christmas Eve to George Clooney's parents who live in Augusta, Kentucky. 

The dog was rescued from a hoarding case and born with severe birth defects by a shelter near Cincinnati, Ohio.

The agency LuvFurMutts says George Clooney paid for numerous surgeries that Nate required.
