The Rock and Dog GoFundMe Save Spot

A star known for his action movies showed his softer side, helping a sick puppy get the surgery it needs.

The Saving Spot shelter in Los Angeles named the four-month-old stray after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson because he was going to have to be tough to survive. The little dog needed heart surgery to fix a murmur.


The shelter set up a campaign to raise the $5,000 needed. When the star of the “Fast and Furious” movies finally heard about the pup’s plight – about two weeks into the fundraising – The Rock chipped in $1,500 for the surgery to help get them to their goal.

“Stay strong lil’ Rock!” Johnson wrote on the GoFundMe page for the dog’s surgery. “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.”

The campaign topped its goal by $1,000 and Dwayne the dog is scheduled for surgery December 18.
