César Felipe Millán Favela was born August 27, 1969, to Felipe Millán Guillen and María Teresa Favela in rural Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico; he is now well-known as a Mexican-American dog trainer with more than two decades of canine experience.

He is mostly remembered for his Emmy-nominated TV series Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, aired from 2004 to 2012 in over 80 countries worldwide.

As one of the New York Times best-selling authors, he has his own line of dog products and instructional DVDs. Besides The Dog Whisperer series, Millan focused on training harshly aggressive dogs, founding a rehab complex, the Dog Psychology Center, from 2002 to 2008.

Millan’s grandfather, Teodoro Millán Ángulo, was a tenant farmer, so their connection with animals was so notable; Due to his natural way with dogs, he was named el Perrero, “the dog herder.” Cesar moved to Mazatlán and his family and later illegally crossed the border into the US when he was 21.

What’s Cesar Millan’s Junior’s Cause of Death?

Although the dog trainer said about the late pitbull’s legacy, memories, and people’s love, he did not mention how the dog lost his life while shocked fans want to know about Cesar Millan’s Junior’s cause death.

Like most teen dogs, Cesar Millan’s Junior grew up. He became a calm, confident, and a quite well-traveled dog who always follows Cesar at personal shows and as part of “Cesar Live!” appearances and other performances. Actually, Junior enjoyed being in front of fans so much that his Daddy had to hold him back until the announcer finished their meeting.

Junior was a gray and white lovely pitbull, always by Cesar Millan’s side. The dog birthday was in August, on the same day as Cesar’s; however, as many of Millan’s fans know, the dog was not the first pit bull to hold the status of “right-hand dog,” having taken on that mantle when Cesar’s former pit bull, Daddy, died on February 19, 2010.

Junior’s story kicked off about two decades when Cesar first met four-month-old Daddy in a studio where Daddy’s ex-owner, the rapper Redman, was involved in his video. Due to his schedule and conditions, Redman felt he could not care for the little dog well, so he tried to find a trainer.

Cesar became that trainer, and Daddy shortly got his new pack, moving in with the Millans. Nevertheless, Daddy had no significant issues; he was a little anxious when he was young since he moved around so much between LA and NJ. After a while, that problem was solved, and Daddy grew up to be his new owner’s right-hand dog.

As Cesar opened up, Daddy did never make a mistake, and nobody saw aggression or any other negative behavior from the dog. He additionally helped in raising Millan’s two sons, and Cesar revealed that he had never had a dog quite like Daddy:

“When my boys, Andre and Calvin, were little, I knew I could leave him to entertain them while I was busy; he helped teach Andre to walk. And when one of the boys fell down, Daddy would be right there, licking him and making sure he was okay.”

The 15-year-old Junior was the Cesar new dog he had been proposing to choose, although Daddy disagreed. Following he disregarded Cesar’s first few options, he finally came to like a new gray and white puppy.

“Older dogs sometimes just don’t want to deal with an energetic puppy,” Cesar opened up that time, “So I hesitated to stress him out with a young dog… (but) you can’t believe how well it went! The puppy immediately lowered his head, surrendering to the older dog, and allowed Daddy to smell him all over.”

Quickly, the puppy began to follow Daddy around, immediately giving his loyalty from his litter and mother to the calm, the new pitbull, and Daddy accepted him as well.

Junior relaxed at night cuddled up next to Daddy from the first days, and Daddy decided to teach Junior how to be like him. This even covered Daddy educating the puppy on the all-important skills.

The cute puppy easily learned most of Daddy’s teachings, notably taking on Daddy’s calm mellowness, which has always was essential in facing aggressive dogs.
