GOOD NEWS Good Samaritan Leaves $1K Tip to Help Bartender Pay for Dog’s Surgery
A Good Samaritan left a New Jersey bartender a $1,000 tip on an $80 tab to help her pay for her dog’s life-saving surgery.
Christina Summitt was working at the Holiday Inn in Clinton when a man and his wife came in. Summitt’s pawprint tattoo sparked a conversation about her pets, and she told the tipper that Tucker, her 3-year-old Great Dane/Labrador mix, was in surgery.
Summitt, who works three jobs and volunteers at Pibbles & More Animal Rescue, said she was shocked when she saw the tip.
“I walked back, and I said, ‘Joe, you know what you’ve done, you know, this is $1,000,’ and he said, ‘I want you to put it toward Tucker’s surgery,’” she told the hosts of “Fox and Friends.”
The surgery to remove a tennis ball that Tucker had swallowed cost about $2,700. Summitt said Tucker is recovering well.
