Bakersfield Shelter Dog To Be Featured On Glee (SPOILER)Monday, February 13, 2012
It has been said that shelter dogs are the best dogs. From a diving dog, a three-legged surfing and therapy dog and now a television star, all have been rescued from the Kern County Animal Shelter.
Zeke, a black and white terrier mix, was 2 months old when he was found wandering the streets of Bakersfield.
Zeke waited at the shelter for someone to claim him and when no one did, the Shelter Rescue Coordinator sought out the perfect rescue home for Zeke.
Zeke was rescued and found his way down South to the home of a trainer that soon recognized that Zeke was destined for Hollywood and a little sitcom called “Glee.”
“It is an exciting feeling to know that your efforts have paid off in such a high profile way,” said Shelter Supervisor Nick Cullen. “It is always rewarding when one of our furry friends finds a forever home.”
When the email came announcing that Zeke could be seen in an upcoming episode of “Glee,” the name of the episode was not released to animal control.
However, from photos received, it is believed that Zeke plays a Valentine's Day gift and will be on this week’s episode.
