‘Dog Whisperer’ Cesar Millan Attempted Suicide Over Dead Pitbull

A man known for his ability to heal emotionally wounded canines nearly met his end after a series of emotionally draining events in 2010.

With his marriage in pieces, and the death of his beloved 16-year-old pitbull Daddy, “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan fell into a depressed state. He initially received the dog as a puppy from rapper Redman after the entertainer felt he could no longer care for the animal. In his upcoming documentary “Cesar Millan: The Real Story,” he explains that after Daddy’s death, “I felt defeated, a big sense of guilt and failure … I was at the lowest level I had ever been emotionally and psychologically.”

RIP Daddy

He subsequently was hospitalized in London for an unspecified overdose, which he never mentioned publicly before. Now, two years later, Cesar is in a much better place and has found a new partner in a woman named Jahira Dar, who he believes is the one. “Cesar Millan: The Real Story” will air at 9 p.m. EST November 25 on Nat Geo Wild.

The original owner of the dog, Redman, abandoned him with Millan at four months old
