Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s three-month-old dog almost died after eating rocks and had to undergo surgery.
Selena Gomez’s dog almost died after eating rocks.
The singer-and-actress was devastated when three-month-old puppy Baylor got violently ill last Friday (11.11.11) after ingesting a large amount of small boulders.
So Selena – who adopted the Purina Puppy Chow last month with boyfriend Justin Bieber – took him to the vet, where he underwent surgery.
Selena tweeted: “My baby is sick praying for his surgery. (sic)”
The adoption agency the couple got Baylor from will now visit Selena once a month to make sure she is caring for the pooch properly.
Justin and Selena – who has five rescue dogs – adopted Baylor after visiting the Winnipeg animal rescue centre D’Arcy’s ARC, where they fell in love with him.
D’Arcy Johnston, chief executive officer of the rescue centre, said: “They spent a lot of time with the puppies. I was told that Selena was missing the dogs that she has at home.
“I wasn’t expecting her to adopt a dog while she was on tour and has a busy schedule. Baylor probably would have had a bad life or a very short life. But he got rescued and brought to our shelter and is now going to live a very good life.”
The avid animal lover that she is, Katherine Heigl paid a visit at the Los Angeles Department of Animal Care & Control on Monday afternoon (January 26).
Accompanied by her mother, the “Grey’s Anatomy” cutie cuddled with a few of the pooches, as she reportedly made the appearance to promote pet adoption.
Speaking about the issue in the past, Miss Heigl believes that pet dog seekers should always refer to animal rescue before going to breeders.
“I do understand people going to breeders, but what you cannot do is get a dog from a puppy mill,” she said.
