The Lebanon, Virginia, boy sold his beloved Pokémon card collection to save the puppy, who had been diagnosed with Parvo, a highly contagious dog virus.
His mom,Kimberly Woodruff, also started aGoFundMeto raise money for veterinary expenses and thanks to kind strangers everywhere, it’s received over $5-thousand in donations. Bruce the dog is now back home and healthier than ever and his good deed caught the attention of Pokémon employees.
They sent their diehard fan a package of rare Pokémon cards and a letter of appreciation. “Hey Bryson, we were so inspired by your story about selling your cards for your dog’s recovery,” it reads. “These are some cards to help you replace the ones you had to sell.”
