JUSTIN BIEBER, pictured, has come under fire after he palmed his poorly pooch Tod – a seven-month-old Chow Chow – off on his backing dancer CJ Salvador a few months after he adopted him, and now the athlete is desperately trying to raise as much cash as possible so that the fluffy canine can undergo life-saving surgery on his hips.
The 25-year-old hunk has now set up a GoFundMe page online in the hope of raising the money so that the adorable pooch can have the operation rather than be put to sleep.
He wrote alongside a sweet picture of Tod playing in the snow: “Tod is a 7 month old Chow Chow born with a birth defect called severe hip dysplasia. Long story short, by the time he turns 1, he wont be able to walk, run, let alone play. This condition presents us with two options: 1: is to put him down (which I refuse to do) 2: let him go through a very specialised surgery. The surgery, however, will cost around $8 000, so I am humbly asking you to donate anything. Anything would be greatly appreciated.” Although the post only went up a few hours ago, the target has already been met and CJ is planning to use the rest of the money raised to fund Tod’s rehabilitation. He said in a video: “Words can’t describe how amazing it is to wake up and see we’ve reached the goal and then some. The extra money is going to go to his rehabilitation and his physical therapy, which he’s going to need a lot. Thank you guys so so much for making my birthday wishes come true.” Despite the 22-year-old singer supposedly making an estimated $56 million last year, CJ didn’t feel it was right to ask the pop star for money because he has “nothing to do with the situation”. Bieber is no stranger to giving up his pets as he previously took on a monkey, hamster and a snake and then dismissed them after a few months. --- Bang Media
