Starstruck: Celebrity Pet Edition

Mr. Jon Stewart is the celeb of the day and his celebrity pet is Champ!

Jon Stewart's 3 legged pit bull ChampStewart has rescued 3 pit bulls including Champ, who has only 3 legs. Stewart is a huge dog lover and an advocate for pit bulls. He went so far as to respond to a Sarah Palin comment in 2008 about pit bulls and hockey moms like this:

One is unfairly maligned in spite of evidence that it is no worse than any other dog, and one is an artificial demographic that is no better or worse than any other mom. –Jon Stewart

With the new addition of Champ to his family and his public displays of love and patience towards his disabled dog (who understandably tires easily on walks), Stewart is rectifying yet another “maligned” demographic.

Maybe the handsome duo is out on a walk now! Happy Saturday!
