'Otter' reminds pet owners not to judge dog by its breed

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philly's own four-legged, furry Instagram star is spreading a message of hope and a plea for compassion.

'Otter' the pitbull is not only really well dressed. The rescue dog is melting all kinds of hearts on social media.

Leslie O'Neill says she adopted the now 6-year-old pitbull when he was just 18 months old.

She dresses him up for his super cute Instagram pics from Otter Claus to Philly's own Otter Balboa.

When Pope Francis came to town in September, Otter got into the spirit.

With the release of the latest "Star Wars" installment, Otter channeled the force to pull off Kylo Ren.

O'Neill's message? Adopt. Because there's a lot of love in every breed.
