Patrick Stewart and his new best friend Ginger, the Rescued PitBull

You may want to take out the tissues or hug your pet while reading this one because it’s really such an inspirational story and possibly one of the cutest foster stories we’ve seen in the media in a while. The cute-factor resides not in the simple fact that Stewart and his wife chose to become foster parents, but more within the documentation of Stewart and his sincere love for Ginger through the use of Twitter Video. With his wife as the camera gal, Stewart documents tidbits from his adventures with Ginger: from the “going for a walk” video to the “Stewart giving Ginger a goodnight kiss video”, this is a true love story between man and dog – one that will leave you inspired to love Stewart even more, and perhaps even discover a newfound appreciation for PitBull rescue and adoption.
