We all know him as an endearing family member, a loving husband, and a compassionate person towards other people, especially to the less fortunate, in the long-running action drama series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano wherein he plays the iconic role of Ricardo “Cardo” Dalisay.
However, people close to Coco Martin and those who have been following his life on-and-off-screen in the previous years know that he is the same in real life as well (except the husband part, of course). Besides, his followers on Instagram are also aware that he’s a certified animal lover as he posts videos and photos of his pets, which includes birds, snakes, and various breeds of dogs.
And recently, we couldn’t help but notice how he’s been so fond of sharing his simple yet fun moments with his apparently two new pets Tupac and Escobar, which are both American Bulldogs. Both of them may appear tough and brawny, but they could actually be affectionate and playful just like their famous fur-parent.
In spite of his busy schedule, the 38-year-old actor-director makes sure to be still hands on in taking good care of them for he personally takes them on walks around their village and even enthusiastically play with them in their garden during his leisure time.
Aside from being a responsible pet owner, protecting animals has been one of the FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano star’s many advocacies.
Indeed, Coco is not a hero not just for mankind, but for animals as well.
