Esteemed stage, screen and film actor Ken Howard is not only an avid bully breed supporter, but in fact credits his Staffordshire terrier Shadow with saving his life. It was Howard's wife Linda, a retired stuntwoman and dedicated animal lover, who lobbied for the adoption of Shadow, and thankfully so.

In June 2000, when Howard was in need of a kidney transplant, his condition caused him to collapse. As he lay face down suffocating in a pool of his own blood, Shadow ran downstairs, alerting Linda that something was wrong by growling until she followed him back upstairs. Howard was discovered in time to receive life-saving medical attention and went on to have the transplant.
