Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Is The Greatest, Donates $1,500 To Save Abandoned Puppy’s Life!


In need of some good news today? We are too, so we went searching for celebrities doing good things, and it’s no surprise we found Dwayne Johnson hiding out. The professional wrestler/actor might look intimidating, but all indications point to him being the nicest guy in the world.

Actress Michelle Trachtenberg sent out a tweet back in November about a puppy named after The Rock, who desperately needed a surgery to stay alive. She tagged The Rock’s twitter account in the tweet, in hopes he might see it, or maybe some of his followers would.


The story behind this 4-month-old puppy is that he was abandoned at a shelter with a heavy wire wrapped around his mouth. They were able to remove the wire and stitch the poor guy up, but while doctors were working on him, they discovered he had a more serious problem. He had a severe heart murmur that required surgery.


But that surgery isn’t cheap. They were looking to raise $5,000 for the puppy on his GoFundMe page, and thanks to Mr. Johnson, they were able to reach their goal with ease. In fact, they now have $6,000!

The Rock helped out with a special $1,500 donation, and please don’t be that douche who says, “He could have covered the whole thing!” Yes, he could have, and you could have covered your face in peanut butter, glued a piece of bread to your back, and ran outside screaming, “I’M PEANUT BUTTER MAN!” But you didn’t because that would be a ridiculous thing to do, plus, you shouldn’t be wasting peanut butter like that.

The shelter updated the GoFundMe page last week with a special note thanking Johnson…

Knowing that ‘The Rock’ has got Dwayne the puppy’s back, we are confident he will be a fighter and make it through this. Thank you all for your generous donations — thanks to you we have met our goal.

We are willing to bet Johnson would have helped out even if the puppy wasn’t named after him. As most of you know, the superstar lost his French Bulldog puppy, Brutus, back in September after it swallowed a poisonous mushroom in the backyard.

Brutus would be proud, Papa Johnson!
