Sir Patrick Stewart is a genuine treasure in this often tumultuous world. His philanthropy, his acting, and his sense of humor - not to mention his friendship with Sir Ian McKellen - often give us hope and joy when we need it most. So, when the Internet got news and pictures of Patrick Stewart's dog, Ginger, naturally they instantly fell in love. Ginger the pit bull was sweet, energetic, loving, and the two of them were simply adorable together. However, when Sir Patrick decided to move back to England, it was revealed that he would have to give up Ginger. Why? Because of the UK pit bull ban.
You may wonder why are pit bulls banned in England? This ban exists to supposedly keep the public safe, despite the fact that it is mainly based on myths about pit bulls. Dogs can be confiscated just for looking too similar to a pit bull, and can even be put down though they've done nothing wrong.
Now, Patrick Stewart has stepped up to fight the ban, along with other celebrity pit bull owners. His time with Ginger has touched our hearts, and their tale is one that will, hopefully, end in some change for the better.
