RANCHO SANTA FE,CA (AP) - Wouldn't it be great if you knew how a rescue dog would act before you adopted it
Ness is a Chihuahua who will soon be up for adoption, but until then you can watch him acting as "Bruiser" in a stage production of "Legally Blonde: The Musical" at the Moonlight Amphitheatre in Vista north of San Diego.
Veteran animal trainer Rob Kuty of San Diego Pet Training says Ness is learning how to speak on command, jump into a purse and stay relaxed despite a live orchestra and audience.
Ness is living with Kuty until the show is over, and will be available at the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe after July 14.
Kuty says Ness doesn't know he's a star, he just likes being with people.
