Jeffrey Dean Morgan is an actor most recognizable for his roles in The Good Wife, Grey’s Anatomy, and The Walking Dead. What you may not know about Morgan is that he’s an avid dog lover.
One day, Morgan was approached by a group of kids in Venice Beach, CA. They were selling puppies out of a box. They were trying to get Morgan to buy one and told him that the puppies cost $350 each.
Morgan pointed to a puppy lying at the bottom of the box, much smaller than the rest, and asked how much for that puppy. The kids said that she wasn’t going to make it through the night.

Morgan took out a $20 bill and handed it to the kids. He was then given the tiny puppy. Morgan wasn’t optimistic about the pup’s condition but wanted to do what he could, so he brought her to the veterinarian.
She didn’t have much of a shot but Morgan wouldn’t give up! The vet suggested he could do what he could but her chances of survival were pretty bleak.
Surprisingly, the puppy began to perk up and take puppy formula from a bottle. Morgan had high hopes and introduced her to his other dog, Bandit.
Bandit took a particular interest and now the little puppy had two lives to live for besides her own!

In 2009, Morgan told the heartwarming story to Bonnie Hunt on a talk show. “I bottle fed her for a month, and she used to kiss her way around, which is how she got her name Bisou — it means ‘kiss’ in French.”

In honor of Bisou and her incredible will to live, the actor had her named tattooed on his arm.
Bisou spent 12 spectacular years with Morgan. She’s now running happy and free over The Rainbow Bridge. A tiny dog who barely had a chance at life lived a wonderful one indeed!
