A $1,500 donation from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson helped save the life of a puppy and reach the $5,000 goal to operate the 4 month old.
The dog, who was named Dwayne “The Rock,” was dumped at North Central Shelter with a large metal wire wrapped around the bottom portion of his mouth. It took bolt cutters for the shelter to remove it. After vets fixed the mouth, they realized that the puppy had a grade 5 heart murmur. Saving SPOT in West Hollywood decided to take the puppy and put a GoFundMe campaign for $5,000 to cover the cost of the operation. They have to give him calming aid for dogs to help with the pain. Pet owner Carrie said that “it can be difficult to deal with our pets when they are suffering from anxiety and pain.”, but sometimes we need to do the best thing for them.
After the former WWE champion saw the story on social media he decided to help. 2 days ago, Johnson left a $1,500 donation with the message, “Stay strong lil’ Rock! Let’s get you taken care of, healed up and feeling better for Christmas. Plus you have a VERY cool name to uphold ;). Got your back ~ Dwayne J.” $5,865 was raised at time of this writing.
The Rock is a big dog lover and frequently posts hilarious photos on his Instagram with his French bulldog he named Hobbs.
