Steven Seagal showed he’s a softie at heart, as he cooed over dogs at an animal rescue centre.
The 58-year-old actor visited the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter with his wife Elle.
Picking up the abandoned dogs, he exclaimed “beautiful” and even asked one puppy: “What’s happening, baby?”
When he came face to face with Tawny the Pit Bull, the film star said: “Look how nice this dog is. What a sweetheart.”
“Pit Bulls have a hard time getting adopted because they’ve got a bad rap,” he solemnly said, as Elle wept with distress.
Seagal and Elle later attended a dog adoption event, to try to persuade people to give the animals good homes.
