Texas Fur-ever: Friday Night Lights' 'Coach Taylor' adopts dog from Austin shelter

Kyle Chandler, who played Coach Taylor on "Friday Night Lights," and his wife adopted little Clive from Austin Pets Alive! on March 17.

AUSTIN, Texas — "Texas fur-ever" ... forever ... whatever floats your boat.

"Friday Night Lights" actor Kyle Chandler, who plays "Coach Taylor" on the show, adopted a dog on March 17 after originally visiting with a plan to foster, according to Austin Pets Alive!

Little Clive had clear eyes and a full heart, so certainly the pup couldn't lose.

Chandler and his wife have adopted before with APA!, too, the shelter said.

"#texasforever! Actor Kyle Chandler and his wife Kathryn stopped by yesterday with the intention of fostering a dog. Little Clive stole their hearts and they decided to adopt instead," Austin Pets Alive! said on Instagram. "This is not the first APA! dog the Chandler family has adopted, and we thank them for their continued support."

Then some more furry friends can find their "Texas fur-ever" home, too. 

Texas forever, man.
