Daddy Millan
Birth: 1993
California, USA
Death: Feb. 19, 2010
Los Angeles
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Canine Actor. Starred on Dog Whisperer with his owner, Cesar Millan who is a dog trainer. He was adopted by Millan as a puppy from rapper Redman who could not take care of him. He was used to help rehabilitate other dogs especially aggressive ones and helped present the 56th Annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

Many people don't know that Daddy originally belonged to rapper Redman. When the pit bull was four months old, Redman didn't feel he could care for it properly in his environment. He sought a trainer and, through a referral, found Cesar. Daddy has been with the Millan family ever since!

Daddy was Cesar's first right-hand dog. Since Cesar raised him from four months of age, Daddy was used to being around dogs of all sizes. This exposure and his natural balanced energy made him a perfect candidate for rehabilitating other dogs, particularly those with dog-aggressive issues. Daddy doesn't react unless he is given a command to react, and his calm-submissive energy is contagious.

One of Daddy's remarkable traits is his extreme tolerance for smaller dogs. He allows them to do whatever they want to him. Italian greyhounds Lita and Rex like to climb on top of Daddy, often curling around his body to go to sleep. Daddy is also a keen observer of emotion. If a family member is having a rough day or feeling sad, Daddy immediately picks up on it.  He'll lay at your feet and wait for a belly rub or a pat on the back. After receiving affection, he shakes it off and walks away. He does the same with dogs who seem down!

Often, in the morning, Daddy will let you know he's awake by bringing you a gift: a shoe, a T-Shirt, or a stuffed toy. He'll walk around with the item in his mouth, waiting for someone to notice. Then he lets you take it out of his mouth and walks away with his tail wagging.

On hot days, Daddy likes to dig holes in the ground and enjoy the cool reprieve they provide. Even more than that, he loves mud!  The last time it rained, Daddy had a blast, rolling around like there was no tomorrow. When he came back, wagging his tail in greeting, he was completely brown. There was even mud in his nose!

As Daddy ages, the Millans have had to pay close watch to his health and bring him on frequent veterinary check-ups. As Redman does not plan on returning to Los Angeles, he felt that arranging for Daddy's return to him would be too complicated, due to the dog's age. The rapper decided that the dog would be better off staying with Cesar and officially signed Daddy over to the Millan family.
