Usher buys 12k puppy
Oct 26, 2012, 19:01 GMT
Usher has splashed out $12,000 on a new dog.
The 'Climax' singer was the highest bidder for a goldendoodle puppy at the Pencils of Promise Gala in New York City last night (25.10.12), in which the pooch was being auctioned to raise money for the charity, which constructs schools in Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Ghana.
Usher looked thrilled with his prize as he was determined to purchase a new canine in the auction, but he nearly lost out to fellow gala attendee and former 'Gossip Girl' star Jessica Szohr when the brunette beauty bid $11,000 for the puppy following the 34-year-old star's $10,000 offer.
But Usher's willingness to buy a new four-legged friend shone through and he upped his bid to $12,000 before throwing his arms up in the air in celebration when he was informed the dog was his.
Usher's latest animal acquisition seemed to grow fond of him immediately as the pooch started whining when the 'There Goes My Baby' hitmaker went up to make a speech.
The singer's auction win comes after he was outbid on a puppy at last year's gala event, but the winning family went on to name their new pooch Usher.
