Sir Patrick Stewart is known around the world for his expansive career in theatre and film. You’ve seen him in everything from Star Trek to X-Men and more… but right now he’s going viral for a different reason!
Patrick Stewart is blowing up the internet with adorable photos and videos of his precious foster dog: a pitbull named Ginger.
Ginger was a breeding dog for pit bull fighting until she was rescued by the ASPCA. 76-year-old Patrick Steward and his wife, Sunny Ozell, are fostering Ginger until she’s ready for a permanent home.
But Stewart’s fostering isn’t just great for Ginger; it’s also great for us, because that means we all get to see Ginger’s adorable face!
More importantly, it’s bringing awareness to the need for foster parents, and adopting. Have you seen the “adopt don’t shop” message around? That message is to encourage people to adopt dogs who need homes rather than purchasing designer dogs from breeders, and that’s exactly what Patrick Stewart is promoting!
In the video below, Sir Patrick Stewart met Ginger for the first time… they clearly hit it off right off the bat!

“I’m in LOVE,” he wrote in the caption. He later tweeted a video of “the swimming lesson that wasn’t,” and it looks like Ginger loves him too! She can’t even stand to be away from him while he goes for a swim.

Just look at him stroking her while she naps on the couch. It’s hard to punish her when she’s so cute!

And Stewart’s wife, Sunny, seems pretty smitten too!

Based off of Patrick and Sunny’s Ginger posts, it seems the pair are setting themselves up to be “foster failures” (i.e. foster parents who are never going to be able to say goodbye… so they end up adopting the dog themselves!).
No matter what happens, Ginger is certainly in for a life full of love.
