MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Florida teenager who fell 100 feet from a Wisconsin Dells amusement ride has met a companion assistance dog that Charlie Sheen donated.
Teagan Marti will receive the dog for good when she turns 16 in September.
Thursday, the two got acquainted in Milwaukee. Her family went along, and Teagan was excited to meet the four-month-old English golden retriever.
A family friend who is Sheen’s godfather contacted the actor in February – and he donated $10,000 to buy Charlie, and train him near Fond du Lac. Sheen said at the time that he hoped the dog would be named after him – and that’s exactly what the family did.
Teagan Marti suffered brain, back, internal, and pelvis injuries in the summer of 2010, when a landing device failed on a ride at Extreme World in the Dells. Teagan now uses a walker, after she was paralyzed at first.
