Perhaps inspired by his work as Dex Dogtective in 2012’s groundbreaking Foodfight! — a cinematic masterpiece that went unreleased for nine years — walking nicotine stain Charlie Sheen, he of tiger semen fame (think I’ve got that right), recently donated $10,000 to an injured teenager so she could afford a therapy dog.

A Florida teenager who plummeted 100 feet from a Wisconsin amusement park ride in 2010 is getting some help from actor Charlie Sheen.

Teagan Marti suffered brain, spine, pelvis and internal injuries when nets and air bags that were supposed to catch riders on the free-fall ride were not raised. She was paralyzed initially but through physical therapy is now able to walk with a walker.

A family friend in Eau Claire asked Sheen for $6,000 to cover therapy dog training, and Sheen wired $10,000. (Via)

This of course begs the question, how many dogs of yours would Sheen have to pay for until you watch an episode of Anger Management? Then again, apparently being a Sheen fan isn’t a prerequisite to obtain his money.

The 15-year-old said she didn’t really know much about Sheen before but now thinks he’s kind. (Via)

Shhhh, nobody tell her that Sheen’s career post-1989 happened.
