On the NBC sitcom Growing Up Fisher, J.K. Simmons portrays the blind patriarch of a family-of-four whose guide dog is a yellow Labrador named Mel. Off-screen, the cast and crew of the show are making Mel's life a reality for one lucky person.
The show's cast, which includes Jenna Elfman, and crew have adopted an 8 week old yellow Labrador retriever named Guf (an abbreviation for the show), and will sponsor his guide dog training until he can be paired with a visually impaired person, reports Today. The pooch will be cared for by a "puppy raiser" until the age of 18 months, at which time he'll begin training at New York's Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind.

How did Jenna Elfman spend her holiday weekend? Puppy-proofing!
The actress adopted an 8-week-old dog from the L.A. Animal Rescue on May 26, and the adorable puppy spent the Memorial Day weekend "trashing the place," according to the actress's WhoSay page.
Elfman and her two young sons, Story and Easton, spotted the spaniel mix at Tailwaggers pet store in Hollywood, where L.A. Animal Rescue was having one of its regular adoption events. Though 4-year-old Story had his heart set on a Chihuahua, with help from an adoption specialist, the trio decided on a different dog – the "very mellow" mutt, according to Su Roos, director of the rescue.

Baby No. 2 isn't keeping Jenna Elfman from maintaining balance in her life – the balance between food cravings and exercise, that is.
"You know, the main cravings are done with," the Accidentally on Purpose actress, 37, told PEOPLE at the P.S. Arts "Express Yourself" charity event in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sunday. "Now it's just eating in general. I like stuffing food down my face."
But like any good Hollywood celebrity, she keeps in shape.

How can an expectant mom stay stylish in her second trimester? Accentuate the positive, says Jenna Elfman.
Wearing a clingy sweater dress that showed off her toned legs, the actress told PEOPLE about her sure-fire pregnancy style strategy at Monday's premiere of Old Dogs.
"I found I’m showing the things that are still intact," Elfman, 38, says. "That helps with my beauty morale. The legs and the arms – those are hanging in there, I’ll show those. That makes me feel like I’m still sexy despite my whole center of gravity being completely altered."
