Robert Pattinson's Dog Goes From Rags to Riches

You probably thought Bear the dog was lucky to simply share a home with Twilight star Robert Pattinson — but the story gets even better.

The actor stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week to talk about Breaking Dawn: Part 2, which will open to hordes of shrieking fans this Friday. He and Ellen gabbed about Bear, whom Pattinson adopted from a shelter in Louisiana when the dog was just a few weeks old.

"He was in a five-day kill shelter," Pattinson explained. "He was on his fourth day."

In just a few days' time, Bear was flying to Los Angeles on a private jet and enjoying the luxuries of a Four Seasons hotel suite. Talk about turning your luck around!
