While his sturdy body may make him look like a still nature oak and, perhaps, be a person without sentimentality, Dave Bautista shows everyone that his weakness lies in animals in need.
That same weakness, in 2019, led Dave to adopt two little Pit Bull brothers from the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. Also, earlier this year, the WWE star offered a $ 20,000 reward to track down the person who wrote “Trump” on a manatee.
Dave leads a quiet life in the Port Tampa area, but when he learns of an event involving animals, he can’t help but help.
Dave Bautista adopts abandoned dog
Recently she learned the story of an abandoned 3-month-old dog found with a metal chain stuck in its neck. Bautista learned of the dog’s story after the Tampa Bay Humane Society posted it on Facebook.
This sad story touched the heart of Dave, who immediately offered a reward of $ 5,000 to find the person responsible for the abuse.
According to the organization’s director, Sherry Silk, a woman was driving her car when she saw the dog eating in a trash can in the local cemetery. The woman stopped to take a close look at the abandoned animal and, to her surprise, the dog ran to greet her in a very friendly manner.
Without thinking twice, he put the injured dog in his car and rushed her to the premises of the humanitarian company.
The dog named Sage was in great pain, the chain was so encrusted in his neck that it had to be removed by surgery. Sage also suffered from a very painful skin infection and had other health issues related to neglect and neglect, which required medical attention.
Despite his sad history, Sage still trusted people and turned out to be a very loving dog who yearned to receive lots of attention.
Sherry said according to Patch:
He is very sweet and sympathetic. Despite immense pain, Sage wagged his tail on the examination table as our vet and technicians examined him.
It should be noted that the humanitarian society receives pets with a similar history as Sage every week, or that they are simply abandoned.
But, for some reason, the story of little Sage went right to the bottom of the famous heart.
Dave said in an interview:
I came across his story and it crushed me. To me, there is nothing more innocent and pure than a puppy.
Bautista’s bounty offer caught national attention, and other famous actors, such as Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Mickey Rourke, decided to pay the bounty money.
In addition, renowned Tampa City law firm Alvarez Injury Law has pledged to pay the same amount as Bautista. The humanitarian company didn’t want to be left behind and also donated $ 1,500, for a total reward of $ 10,300.
There are still no clear clues to reach the person responsible, but the good news is that the abandoned dog has officially become Penny Bautista.
Dave said on Instagram:
I would like to introduce you to the newest member of my family. She’s a Baptist now, and she’ll never be mistreated someday, not a second. He’s about to live his best puppy life.
The entire organization staff were delighted to see Penny leave the scene and ride in style in Bautista’s Rolls Royce.
Finally, the organization thanked the movie star for everything he did, in a Facebook post, and kept up the good work.
