WATCH: Sir Patrick Stewart Fosters a Pitbull Named Ginger & It’s as Adorable as You Might Expect

A homeless Pitbull in LA is discovering what love is in a foster home with Sir Patrick Stewart and wife Sunny Ozell, who is capturing the actor's special moments with their four-legged house guest named Ginger.

Stewart who has famously 'seen it all' over the years had the moment Ginger arrived from LA based rescue Wags and Walks and the ASPCA captured on camera by his wife, Sunny Ozell and it's clear it was love at first sight.

The X-Men actor revealed on a late night talk show during the week that Ginger would be his first dog in 50 years telling Conan excitedly "She only arrived a few hours ago at our house. I've longed for this moment to come."

Ginger will be staying with Stewart and his wife until a permanent home can be found. Being in a foster home will give her the chance to understand what home life is all about to help her settle better into her new home when she is matched with the right one for both her and her new family.

Clearly a very loving little dog, Stewart told Conan about his new foster dog's sad background saying she "comes from a pit bull fighting ring. She was a breeding dog for a fighting ring. They're all over the country, every state has these things and they're very cruel."

But even though this is what she has known of life, it is very clear to see that her future holds much better things.

Pitbulls are a much misunderstood and maligned breed across the world and are banned in Stewart's home country, the UK, which leads to dogs being targeted unnecessarily because of how they look, not act.

We didn't think we could love you anymore Sir Patrick Stewart until today. Thank you for not only highlighting how wonderful rescue dogs are and for helping to change Ginger's future, but also for helping to change the perception of Pitbulls around the world.
