'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Dave Bautista rescues 2 abandoned pit bulls from animal shelter
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida animal shelter sent out a desperate plea after someone had abandoned two pit bull dogs. But volunteers never expected the post would catch the attention of "Guardians of the Galaxy" actor Dave Bautista.
The 6-year-old pit bulls, Maggie and Ollie, were handed over to the county after their owner had a baby. Volunteers from Rescue Me Tampa wrote a post seeking someone who would take both dogs, writing they'd been together their whole life.
That was last month. A week later, the group posted a picture of the star hugging the two pups and announcing he had adopted them. The rescuers said Bautista is spoiling the rescue dogs with Tempur-Pedic dog beds, a large gated property and doggy doors everywhere.
