Dog who waited 400 days to find forever home gets adopted by ‘New Girl’ star Max Greenfield

All dogs dream of finding their forever home, but it takes some longer than others to get adopted. Some dogs wait months or even years to find homes.

But one dog’s long wait ended in a true Hollywood ending after she was adopted by a very familiar TV face.

According to nonprofit animal rescue Wags and Walks, a dog named Darlin waited over 400 days to find a home. Though she spent a lot of her time in foster care, she could never find a forever home.

But recently, Darlin stole the heart of one celebrity — TV star Max Greenfield.

Greenfield is best known for his Emmy-nominated role as Schmidt on the sitcom New Girl, and currently stars on the CBS sitcom The Neighborhood. He has also acted in films like The Big Short and Promising Young Woman.

Greenfield and his wife Tess Sanchez recently adopted Darlin, and say it’s a perfect match. “Darlin is a million dollar dog. We knew she was the one the first day we brought her home!” the couple said, according to Wags and Walks.

The actor shared a photo on Instagram of him and Sanchez with their sweet new addition to the family. (They slightly changed her name to “Darlene.”)

Sanchez also shared her own post: “We love her so much. She is a real lady,” she wrote in the caption, thanking Wags and Walks for introducing them.

Wags and Walks, which has a branch in LA, has had some high-profile celebrity supporters over the years. Actor Chris Pine adopted his dog from the shelter last year, and Sir Patrick Stewart is a foster and serves on the board of directors.

We’re so glad that Darlene has finally found a home! Thank you to Max Greenfield and Tess Sanchez for adopting her!
