Patrick Stewart Greets The Pit Bull He Will Be Fostering And Falls In Love

Sir Patrick Stewart took a break from promoting his latest movie, Logan, to promote dog adoption. In fact, he is fostering a dog with his wife, in this case their first rescued Pit Bull.

It appears that the renowned actor, known for his role as Captain Picard in Star Trek and Charles Xavier in the X-Men movie franchise, has a soft spot for dogs. In a video he released on Twitter, Stewart meets Ginger, the first Pit Bull he and his wife will be fostering. He captioned the video “Thanks to @ASPCA and @WagsandWalks Sunny and I are finally fostering our 1st pitbull! Meet Ginger. I’m in LOVE. #AdoptDontShop”

Ginger is all smiles as she’s greeted at the door and even gives the actor kisses when he leans down to greet her. “Thank you for that. That was a very nice greeting,” he tells Ginger, petting her.

The actor later updated everyone on how Ginger is doing, writing, “Our foster doggie Ginger is sleeping and snoring on our couch and I can honestly think of no greater compliment.”

A day later? Ginger has made herself right at home. Watch some more adorable videos of the pair here.
