Those still worried about Ellen DeGeneres' former dog Iggy can breathe a sigh of relief: The little guy is doing just fine. The 5-month-old Affenpinscher mix is returning to the spotlight, shooting a new Public Service Announcement for pet adoption awareness ”and appears to be very happy. The dog first made headlines in October after DeGeneres, with the best of intentions, gave the adopted dog away to her hairdresser. Because the move was against the Mutts and Moms pet adoption agency's policy, the dog was taken back. But Iggy is now "doing famously very well and in a loving home," Keith A. Fink, an attorney for Mutts and Moms, tells Entertainment Tonight, which paid a visit to the PSA set. Fink would not reveal the dog's whereabouts "for the safety of the adoptive family," but stressed that Iggy has been placed "with a family that is a loving and takes great care of him." Added Fink, "Iggy likes to play with overstuffed animals and has a special preference for a stuffed turtle." For more footage of Iggy, watch Monday's Entertainment Tonight. The PSA will debut on ET Tuesday.
