KENANSVILLE, N.C. – An actress who starred in the original “Grease” movie has rescued a dog from the kill list at a North Carolina animal shelter.
The Dodo reported that Stockard Channing recently adopted Kony from an animal shelter in Duplin County to comfort her after the heartbreaking loss of her previous dog.
Kony arrived to his new owner in New York last Saturday and has since been renamed Benny.
“He is a darling,” Channing said, in a Facebook post. “Such a great dog. He is curled up on the bed with me now.”
Channing is best known for playing Rizzo in the original 1978 musical comedy “Grease.”
