MCU Star Dave Bautista Adopts an Abused Puppy. Offers a Cash Reward To Find The Perpetrator

Guardians of the Galaxy actor Dave Bautista is no less than a hero for this “horribly abused” puppy. He has added a new member to his family by taking in the puppy and offering a cash reward to anyone leading to those responsible. 

Earlier this month, Dave Bautista found a pitbull pup eating garbage with a chain mercilessly embedded into her neck. He took the injured pup to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay and shared the story on Instagram highlighting how the pup named Sage was attacked. Sage then had to undergo surgery to remove the metal chain from her neck. 

The organization shared a post that read “Sage is only 3-months-old….She is very sweet and friendly. Even though she is in immense pain Sage was wagging her tail on the exam table while our veterinarian and vet techs were examining her. In addition to the chain, we noticed that Sage has skin issues and overgrown nails. We can’t imagine who would do this to her.”

HSTB has also offered a reward of $1,500 to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the culprit. After the successful surgery and Sage’s recovery, she was put up for adoption. Sage and her story drew in a lot of people, and one of them was Dave Bautista. Looks like Bautista grew a strong attachment with Sage after being so much invested in her recovery and in finding the perpetrators. He took her in and offered $5,000 reward to nab the culprits.

“The good news is, the puppy you know as Sage actually became Penny Bautista. So I’d like to introduce you to the newest member of my family. There she is, healing up, nice, and recovered. She is now a Bautista, and she will never be abused again a day in her life. Not a second in her life. She’s about to live her best puppy life ever.”

The former owners have not yet been found but we are glad to see a happy ending for Penny. We hope that the message grabs more attention so Penny can find justice.
