Actor and husband to the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” Justin Theroux made a pit stop (literally a stop to see a pit bull) at Austin Pets Alive earlier this week, and now, just like everyone who has seen the picture, we’re considering adopting a dog. Theroux introduced his 200,000-plus Instagram followers to 12-year-old pit bull Izzy who “would love to see outside of the shelter (even though it’s the amazing AUSTIN PETS ALIVE!)”
Theroux, who frequents Austin when filming “The Leftovers,” and friend Carlos Quirarte visited the city as part of a road trip that included Texas destinations like Marfa and spots in surrounding states New Mexico and Arizona.
This isn’t the first time Theroux has made it a point to visit an animal shelter while traveling. He previously spotlighted shelter pup Reggie and his need of a lifelong home when he posted a picture of the pit bull while visiting London.
Why doesn’t Theroux just take Izzy for himself? He and Aniston may already have quite a full house. Both are dog owners to several rescues, including one that may have been adopted from Austin Pets Alive, as the shelter is tagged in the picture below.
Faces of Rescue! Kiko, Lou Lou, Dolly, Sophie, Clyde, Pooma, and Norman. 7 dogs rescued. ZERO dogs bought. When you buy a dog, you kill another.

You can take a look at many of the dogs up for adoption on the Austin Pets Alive Instagram here, or visit their website. The American-Statesman did a heartwarming piece about long-stay shelter dogs earlier this year, which featured several Austin Pets Alive animals.
