Ryan's daughter Stephanie McCutcheon is a volunteer with the rescue and mom to a three-legged pit bull herself.
In fact, Ryan credits McCutcheon and her tripawd pittie for showing her how very wrong the negative stereotypes about pit bulls are.
"In my opinion, they are awesome dogs with huge hearts, goofy personalities, great family dogs and the best cuddlers," McCutcheon says. "More people need to realize that and stop believing myths that are out there about them."
She says she's proud of her mom, and excited for Chunk.
"Hopefully Chunk can be one more pit bull that can show people who they really are," McCutcheon says. "Plus two tripawd pitties in the family is better than one!"
