Actor Jonah Hill, known for his roles in Superbad, Wolf of Wall Street, and Get Him to the Greek, recently became a dog owner. Hill shared the news with his Instagram followers, revealing that he adopted a cute pitbull terrier from LA shelter Love Leo Rescue.
After the post went viral, Love Leo Rescue offered some background story about the adorable doggo.
According to their Instagram post, the dog’s name is Fig, and she is a three-year-old pitbull. Fig was abandoned by her owners during the holiday season and was placed at Victor Valley rural shelter in California. Before Hill stepped up to offer her a permanent home, the dog was staying with a foster family.
“We’re loving this adoption story and are so grateful we could be part of her journey,” added Love Leo Rescue. And we couldn’t agree more!
Judging by the photos, it seems like Fig and Hill are a match made in heaven and they are in for many adventures. We hope other celebrities will follow Hill’s lead and adopt dogs instead of buying them.
