Justin Bieber's love for his family is something that is most admirable about him, and that extends to his beloved dogs. In 2016, he added a fluffy white Chow Chow named Todd into his puppy family, giving Esther and Philip a new little brother.
But as of a few weeks ago, one of Justin's dancers C.J. Salvador and his family adopted Todd from Justin.
And now, Todd is need of some help. C.J. revealed that he found out that Todd was born with hip dysplacia and by the time he is a year old, he won't be able to walk, jump, or play anymore. This is truly heartbreaking and C.J. has created a GoFundMe page to help raise money for the $8,000 surgery little Todd needs. When C.J. announced the news, he noticed that Justin was coming under attack for not offering to pay for the surgery, since he was Todd's first owner, but he has since taken to Instagram and Facebook to clear the air, stating that he would never ask Justin to get involved since Todd is now his family's dog.
"Todd is a Salvador. My parents adopted him which now gives us the responsibility of taking care of him. I did not ask JB for money because he has nothing to do with the situation. I have had an amazing professional relationship with him for over 5 years and I plan on contributing to his camp for as long as I can," C.J. wrote. "The breeder did not notify anyone or was oblivious to the fact that Todd was born with this birth defect. My family found out about his condition when they took him in for a check up before they had him neutered. It really troubles me how the media can make a beautiful and inspiring situation into a petty story to make someone else look bad. My parents and I are extremely grateful to everyone who supported with Todd's fundraising."
And now C.J. as surpassed his goal, so he will be able to pay for Todd's surgery. We wish Todd all the best!
