Justin Bieber should never be allowed near animals again! This time, the short-attention-stricken singer appears to have palmed off his sick puppy on a friend, who’s now trying to scrounge up $8,000 for a lifesaving operation for the Chow Chow puppy.
Justin Bieber & Todd
In August last year, Bieber proudly introduced his “new little fluff ball Todd” to his fans on Instagram. Later he posted a video of the preternaturally fluffy animal, wondering adoringly, “How are you real?”

However, the infatuation has passed. It seems that Justin Bieber – who famously adopted and then dismissed a monkey, a hamster and a snake – has given the dog to one of his dancers, C.J. Salvador.
It gets worse for Todd. Salvador has created a GoFundMe page for the luckless mutt, explaining that the pooch “is a 7-month-old Chow Chow born with a birth defect called ‘sever hip dysplasia.’ Long story short, by the time he turns 1, he won’t be able to walk, run, let alone play.”
Hip dysplasia (canine): In dogs, hip dysplasia is an abnormal formation of the hip socket that, in its more severe form, can eventually cause crippling lameness and painful arthritis of the joints. It is a genetic polygenic trait that is affected by environmental factors.

Salvador says that Todd can either be put down or have a “very specialized surgery.”
“So I am humbly asking you to donate anything,” he writes. The fundraising goal of $8,000 has been met, and the count is now up to $8,246.
After this story was published online, Salvador wrote on Facebook that his family had “adopted” the dog and that he “did not ask [Bieber] for money because he has nothing to do with the situation,” because the defect had only been discovered after they took the dog in.
Justin Bieber is said to have left behind his bulldog puppy Karma too with a dog trainer in Canada and hasn’t picked her up since February 2016!
