Justin Bieber is not up for any Pet Owner of the Year awards. Several times in the past few years, the singer has adopted animals (from hamsters to monkeys), only to later give them up after he realizes his schedule doesn't allow him time to care for a pet.
The most recent of JB's discarded pets is Todd, better known as Todd the Stud on Instagram. Bieber gave the dog over to one of his backup dancers, C.J. Salvador. Unbeknownst to the Biebs or Salvador, however, Todd had major health issues. According to TMZ, the 7-month-old pup needed an $8,000 surgery.
Not wanting to bother Bieber, Salvador turned to crowdfunding to pay for the pricey procedure and raised the money he needed through generous donations. None were more generous though, than the one from Bieber's close friend, Jaden Smith (as in Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's son).
According to Capital FM, Smith personally donated a whopping $3,500 to the cause. In fact, Smith started with a $1,000 donation and then quickly added another $2,500 just to make sure Todd could get the hip surgery he so desperately needed. Looks like he's a best friend of Bieber's and Todd's.
Even though Bieber has faced some backlash over the whole ordeal, Salvador has been quick to defend him and explain that Todd is no longer the singer's responsibility.
