In “The Hunger Games,” Josh Hutcherson‘s character Peeta charms all of Panem with his big heart. Now the actor is proving that he’s just as compassionate in real life — by adopting a shelter puppy!

Hutcherson recently rescued Driver, a 3-month-old pit bull, from California’s Downey Animal Shelter, but had to wait for the pooch to recover from surgery for a broken femur before bringing him home.

Driver apparently had a rough life before meeting Hutcherson; in addition to the broken leg, the pooch is also missing a few toes, and was dropped off at the shelter as a stray.

According to Sasha Rose, of rescue group Hands Paws Hearts, her organization pulled the pup out of the municipal shelter and helped facilitate the adoption. Rose, who describes Driver as “a brave little soul” and “a little angel” said of the dog, “He sat in the shelter for 11 days with a broken leg, and the injury was already about a month old. He’d been sitting in a great deal of pain.”

In a nearly too-good-to-be true twist of fate, a friend put Rose in touch with Hutcherson, who was specifically looking to adopt a rescue dog, and a pit bull at that, on the very day that Rose took Driver out of the shelter.

And it looks like there are nothing but good times ahead for the twosome. “Josh is very, very happy,” and Driver is “very active and playful. He doesn’t complain. He’s a really nice dog,” says Rose.
