(CELEBRITY PETS) Pop singer Enrique Iglesias recently adopted a German Shepherd from Los Angeles’ Westside German Shepherd Rescue, adding a third pooch to his family. Given the pop star’s history of boating with his Golden Retriever Grammy and jet skiing with his German Shepherd Lucas, this pup is certainly in for a life of adventure and fun in the sun rather than glitz and glamour. Read on to learn more about how this celebrity is doing his part to reduce the number of German Shepherds in adoption shelters. — Global Animal

Pop star Enrique Iglesias is a new dad — to a rescued German shepherd!
Although fans of the singer have long suggested he’s a commitment phobe (since he and longtime girlfriend Anna Kournikova have yet to tie the knot), it seems that when it comes to pets, he has no trouble committing.
According to Teddy Hilton, Iglesias adopted the pooch last Saturday from L.A.’s Westside German Shepherd Rescue, which is a no-kill shelter. German Shepherds are often classified as an aggressive breed, and many end up in shelters, so it’s nice to see a celeb doing his part to reduce that number.
The new dog, whose name has not yet been released, has definitely found a pooch-friendly home, considering that Iglesias also has two other dogs: Lucas, who is also a German shepherd, and golden retriever Grammy. The singer often takes his pets on yachts and jet skis, so it’s a good bet that the new addition will have lots of fun adventures this summer!
Up next for Iglesias is an appearance on the Today Show Toyota Summer Concert Series, which is scheduled to air in July.
