North Shore Animal League puppies featured on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'

If you're in the market to adopt a puppy this holiday season, or want to give a loved one a barking surprise, you're in luck. Pop star Nick Jonas joined Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" for a segment of "Rescue Dog Rescue" on Wednesday, Dec. 14, to present eight Long Island shelter dogs from the North Shore Animal League America in Port Washington. The adorable puppies were given flattering, fabricated descriptions by the talk show host and former Jonas Brothers' band member, in hopes of attracting potential pet parents.
