Can You Watch This Video Of Patrick Stewart & His New Rescue Pit Without Melting Into A Puddle Of Tears?

By Travis Greenwood

Actor Patrick Stewart has worn many hats — Starfleet captain, leader of the X-Men, even a murderous neo-Nazi in 2016's surprise thriller Green Room — during his long and distinguished career.

But now the 76-year-old with ripped abs is stepping into what might be his most important role yet: Doggie foster dad!

The heartwarming news was shared yesterday in a video posted to Facebook (embedded below) and Twitter, where it was revealed that Stewart and his wife, Sunny, were welcoming Ginger, a foster pit bull into their Brooklyn home.

And the lucky pup seemed pretty stoked with the arrangement, promptly bathing her cooing new human in a series of wet, slobbery kisses.

Hit play to watch the meet-cute!

‪Thanks to ASPCA and Wags and Walks, Sunny Ozell and I are finally fostering our 1st pitbull! Meet Ginger. I'm in LOVE. #AdoptDontShop #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbulls
