Dwayne Johnson Donates $1,500 to Save a Puppy's Life

The actor is giving us all the feels yet again with another incredibly generous move. In the spirit of the holidays, the Today Show revealed that he donated $1,500 to save a puppy's life after he had been
tortured and abandoned, left with a metal wire wrapped around his snout.
Johnson may be a little biased considering the pooch was named after him, but nonetheless he stepped in and provided the donation to go toward his surgery. "Stay strong lil' Rock! Let's get you taken care of, healed up and feeling better for Christmas. Plus you have a VERY cool name to uphold;). Got your back," the Furious 7 actor wrote on the pup's donation page.

 Thanks to Johnson's generous gift, the pup was able to undergo his surgery, and we're sure he'll find the strength to make it through!
Of course, this moment of kindness is just one of many for Johnson, who we can safely consider "The World's Rock." Here are 7 more reasons he's one of the best dudes in the industry with one of the biggest hearts:
