LONDON, Jan 29: Animal lover Ricky Gervais gave up his promotional segment on a US morning show to help presenters find a home for a 15-year-old dog.
The hosts of “Good Morning America” were chatting to Gervais about his new “David Brent: Life on the Road” film when he stopped them short and said he’d rather focus his attention on getting Bear adopted, reported Contactmusic.
“I was here to talk about that but I’ve just discovered there’s a dog needs adopting, so I’d rather use my segment to get him adopted.
“I’m not leaving until we get a phone call this guy’s adopted. He was chained up for 15 years. Give him a life… He’s so loving. He’s had no life,” Gervais said.
The funnyman added, “Look at him; he was abused for 15 years and he’s forgiven us.”
Gervais also posted a selfie of himself and the Chow-black Labrador mix on social media. (PTI)
