Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Saves Abused Dog That Was Named After Him

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Pro wrestler-turned-film star Dwayne `The Rock` Johnson donated $1,500 to help treat an abused shelter pup named after him.


Us Weekly said the 4-month-old dog had wire wrapped around his mouth when he was dumped at an animal shelter. The binding was removed and the mutt received stitches, however he also needs surgery to correct a heart murmur.

Actress Michelle Trachtenberg alerted Johnson to the situation by tweeting: This puppy named after @TheRock was tortured, abandoned! He needs our help for life saving surgery.

Johnson replied with a Twitter post of his own -- and a donation. "


Too many people emulate the degenerate and sickening behavior of celebrities like the Kardashians, why not follow the Rock`s example and donate to the Humane Society?

Dwayne Johnson is as tough as they come, but he has a tender heart. You can be a macho dude and still love adorable puppies and cute kittens.

Kudos to The Rock, the film star, for raising public awareness about the puppies in animal shelters that need our help, and prayers for The Rock, the puppy, may he recover from his injuries and find a forever home.
