Ricky Gervais Helps Fan Get Dog, But Only if its a Rescue

Comedian Ricky Gervais is known for interacting with fans on twitter. (Just don’t send him a mean tweet. You might get humiliated in front of millions of his followers.)

One fan asked him for a very special request. He wrote, “having watched #Derek my parents agreed if you retweet this they will buy my sister a dog & let you name it!”

Gervais helped the guy and his sister out, but with one condition. Gervais retweeted and added to the end, “A rescue dog tho.”

Since millions of animals enter our shelters each year and only about half get adopted, we think Ricky is a champ for ensuring one more dog gets a home. We suspect, if the fan buys a dog instead of adopting, Gervais will have something to say about it. And it won’t be kind. Don’t cross him on twitter. You’ll get pummeled. And even if he doesn’t get a verbal lashing, adopting is the right thing to do anyway. We hope the fan listens.
