Josh Hutcherson Adopts A Puppy Dog


If you thought Josh Hutcherson was a cutie pie as Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games then you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Yesterday I briefly mentioned that Josh adopted himself a puppy and today we get to meet the little dude. New photos of Josh and his puppy Driver have made their way to the Internets and, unsurprisingly, they make an absolutely adorable couple. Click below to meet Driver Hutcherson.

Josh Hutcherson is a new father … of an adorable 3-month-old puppy! toofab has confirmed the 19-year-old star of “The Hunger Games” recently adopted a special needs pit bull named Driver. Sasha Rose from Hands Paws Hearts in Lancaster, CA tells us they rescued Driver from the Downey Animal Shelter — but before Josh could adopt him from them, the pup had to undergo surgery to repair a broken femur … We’re told Josh’s new pooch, who is also missing a couple toes, is a “brave little soul” and “a little angel.” Despite all he’s been through, he looks pretty comfortable with Josh above, doesn’t he?!

I mean … c’mon. Is this not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? Peeta done good. Not only did he decide to adopt a rescue dog … but he decided to adopt an injured special needs rescue dog. Are you dying yet? I am quite certain that Driver will get all the love and care that he needs from his new daddy … and Josh, in turn, will get more love and affection from his puppy than he prolly knows what to do with. This is a cute family, y’all. Don’t you just love them both?

    Gah! Josh! You are killing me with your adorableness. I don’t know whether to have my way with him or take him for ice cream.

    I am in love with these pics! Any hero who adopts any animal is amazing in my eyes. I also rescued a pit 11 years ago, and she is by far the best thing that’s ever happened to me!

    So cute! It makes me happy, too, when celebrities adopt rescues. It brings attention to the importance of rescues, especially for breeds that are discriminated against, like pitties. What a cute pup!
