Outkast's Big Boi gives puppy to 5-year-old girl paralyzed in shooting

Big Boi is now in the process of readying his Daddy Fat Saxxx Tour to support his most recent album Boomiverse, but he took some time to invite young Abriya to his studio and gifted her with a great present: a bulldog puppy, an animal that was bred at the rapper's Pitfall Kennels.

(Radio.com) In April, tragedy struck in Atlanta when a shooter opened fire on a bouncy house at a child's birthday party: 5-year-old Abriya Ellison was paralyzed in the incident and has been on the road to recovery ever since. The Atlanta native has made a decision to cover the girl's medical bills, and pay for her to have a wheelchair ramp, reports the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

Big Boi told the station that the dog is "something therapeutic" for Abriya.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning Big Boi, whose real name is Antwan Patton, put out a call on his Instagram account earlier this week to try and find Ellison's family.

"My brother saw her story that morning and was like, bro, we've got to do something for this little girl", Patton said.

As Stereogum reports, he donated one of the bulldogs he breeds to Ellison, which she then named King.

Abriya just finished three months of intense therapy and fell in love with the service dogs at the hospital. "It's going to do nothing but help her", Douglas said. "She's been through a lot and to see how strong she is now, that was just like oh my goodness".

"I've been born ready for a puppy", Abriya added. "It's definitely inspiring and it touched our hearts, so we're just trying to do what we can do to help".
