Actor Jonah Hill Adopts A Pit Bull Named Fig, Goes On Instagram To Express Gratitude

Actor Jonah Hill Adopts A Pit Bull Named Fig, Goes On Instagram To Express Gratitude

bored panda - 2 weeks ago

It’s always great news to hear about a celebrity deciding to adopt a rescue dog or cat instead of buying one, encouraging their fans to do the same. With that being said, let’s talk about the actor Jonah Hill and his new incredibly adorable best friend named Fig.

Recently, Jonah Hill adopted a 3-year-old charcoal grey pit bull terrier from Love Leo Rescue in Los Angeles. Turns out, the doggy had been abandoned by her owners at a rural shelter during the holiday season.

Apparently, the pup was dumped by her owners at the Victor Valley shelter during the holiday season. Fig was confused and scared and was clinging to the shelter staff. Since the shelter team felt heartbroken to see her alone, especially during the festive season, they found her a foster home.

Yesterday, the animal rescue went on Instagram to share the good news about Fig’s adoption and to thank Jonah Hill along with all the other people who took care of the doggy when she needed it the most.

“Fig is home! Thank you @jonahhill for choosing to #adoptnotshop. All the cool kids are doing it!!” the rescue team wrote in their post. “This beautiful, extra cuddly, three-year-old pit bull was abandoned at a rural shelter during the holiday season. We are so happy she landed where she did. Clearly its a love connection.”

“It truly does take a village,” the team added after thanking all the kind-hearted people. “Every shelter dog thats adopted puts the squeeze on breeders (or greeders as we call them). Were loving this adoption story and are so grateful we could be part of her journey. Happy life!”

“You gave me a massive gift,” the actor wrote in his Instagram post

After adopting Fig, Jonah Hill also went on Instagram to share a couple of cute photos and thank the animal rescue for all of their hard work. “Thank you so much @loveleorescue you gave me a massive gift and I appreciate you and the work you and your foster parent volunteers do,” the actor wrote in the description of the post.
