Charlie Sheen Pays for Injured Teen’s Dog

We have to admit we were a bit surprised when we heard about Charlie Sheen’s generosity to a Wisconsin teen coping with severe injuries.

Last week, the Associated Press reported, the actor wired 15-year-old Teagan Marti $10,000 to help her family pay for a Golden Retriever puppy that will be specially trained to help her with her specific needs.

Marti sustained multiple injuries in 2010 in a 100-foot fall from an amusement park ride in Wisconsin. She spent months in hospitals undergoing physical therapy to regain some use of her arms and legs.

Of course, Marti chose to name her new pooch Charlie.

We’re wondering: Does this affect your opinion of Charlie Sheen?

Yes! I am very impressed.

I love reading stories like this. People like Charlie Sheen, who many have written off because of some bad decisions, come out of the wood works and help another in need. I'm sure that little "Charlie" will do his job in taking care of his new owner. I wish only the best for young Teagan. May she get well soon and be stronger than she was before.


I never had any ill thoughts of him in the first place!! Media blows everything out of porportion. We all have our problems and make mistakes. Instead of judge we need to be there for each other.

You can tell he is a nice guy, despite his weaknesses. I think this was a very nice gesture. I also think that it was very special that the little girl named the dog after him. A truly sweet thank you.


Charlie just had a bit of a breakdown, he's making a come back and showing he still has a heart, Good going Charlie!


Nothing ever changed my opinion about Charlie Sheen. I still believe he is a great actor. Everyone has to learn to not believe everything they hear.


Yes it does effect. Maybe the soft part of Charlie Sheen is emerging out......


It doesn't surprise me at all that Charlie Sheen would do something like this. He has a big heart. We all make mistakes, his are just publicized and I'm sure some are blown out of proportion. I'm so happy for Teagan! Little Charlie will not only help her but become her best friend. Hugs, love and prayers go out to you and your family Teagan.


Guess he's not all bad.

Charlie Sheen is human and as humans we err. Yes, he has made some poor choices due to drug addiction and bipolar condition. I have read many accounts regarding his generosity. I have examined his astrological chart and despite certain demise -- he will always come out smelling like a rose. I like Charlie.

God Bless Teagan!
