Nuts the dog interrupts a home-pregnancy test by Zoe (Jennifer Lopez)--in their new movie.
JLo is back in a movie that promotes adoption for dogs and artificial insemination for cougars. After a baby-making hiatus in real-life, Jennifer Lopez returns to the screen this month in a rom-com about baby-making entitled The Back-up Plan. So why do we care at The Bark? Because Lopez plays Zoe, the owner of Hudson Mutts, a Greenwich Village pet boutique that sets a good standard by emphasizing adoption and eco-friendly pet care. It also helps that Hudson Mutts was inspired by an adorable, paralyzed Boston Terrier named Nuts (played by a trio of canine actors, who are real-life rescue dogs). We haven’t seen the movie, which opens on April 23, but we’re excited about efforts to promote adoption (with the film’s release) this weekend.
