After a Lifetime Spent Helping the Dog Whisperer Rehabilitate Destructive Dobermans and Anxious Akitas, Cesar Millan's Gentle Pit Bull Daddy Dies at 16
On Feb. 19 the Dog Whisperer's beloved pet and costar died, "peacefully and surrounded by family," at 16. Daddy, who had successfully battled cancer last year, "brought my family and me so much joy," Millan said in a statement. "He represented what my grandfather taught me: Never work against Mother Nature."
Daddy had been a member of Millan's family since his original owner, rap artist Redman, gave the 4-month-old pup to the then-unknown dog trainer. As Millan went on to star in the hit National Geographic Channel series and write four bestsellers, he used Daddy—and his unflappable calm-submissive energy—as a training tool and example of how even breeds with tough reputations can be model pets. "Everywhere he goes he spreads peace. A cat, a rabbit, people who don't like pit bulls . . . Daddy accepts them all," says Millan. "His existence has touched a lot of people."
