Dominic Locatelli is a 12-year-old boy from San Diego, California.  Just like any kid on summer break, Dominic set himself up with a stand selling lemonade and cookies to passers by out in front of his home.  What makes his stand unique among all the others?  He did it to raise money for a sick dog, and it’s not even his!

Rosie, a six-month-old Yorkie is actually a dog that resides with friends of Dominic’s parents.  After hearing about the dog needing surgery, it reminded him of his own dog.  His 17-year-old Yorkie had passed recently, and remembered how sad it made him.  So even though he didn’t really know Rosie, he set out to help anyway.

Dominic got to meet Rosie this past Sunday.  Her humans brought her over to meet the amazing you man, and thank him personally for his efforts.  Along with his stand, his page has brought in over $5,000 towards the medical bills.  If you’d like to find out more, you can click here.
