An animal lover who is raising money to save a sick puppy he rescued has been attacked by moaning know-it-alls claiming his fundraiser is a scam.
Luke Perrin was walking to work on Monday in Brooklyn, New York when he saw a crowd surrounding a dog.
The dog was tied up to a post by a person concerned for the puppys safety after they saw it roaming the busy neighborhood.
Perrin offered to take the dog to his office up the block, where he and his employees named the dog Monte after a famous restaurant near the location the dog was found.

Veterinarians gave Monte an X-ray and found that he had Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus, which is a life-threatening condition where the stomach rapidly expands. Treatment for the disease requires the dog to stay at the animal clinic for days and may involve surgery which costs thousands of dollars.
Perrins coworkers at Square Design, a custom design company, put down a credit card for the vet bill. He later began a GoFundMe campaign to try to cover some of Montes medical bills – which apparently enraged skeptics.
