Justin Bieber didn’t abandon a sick puppy who needs hip surgery, despite gossip sites copy and pasting Page Six’s inaccurate, negatively-angled story.
Page Six, Perez Hilton, and other media outlets misreported that claim after C.J. Salvador — a male dancer who has worked with Bieber for five years, and whose parents adopted the puppy (Todd) — created a GoFundMe page to raise $8,000 for the surgery.
Some context. Bieber previously owned the puppy. He let fans see his “new little fluff ball Todd” for the first time when he posted a sweet Instagram photo last August.
He also posted a video of the pair, which he captioned, “How are you real?”
