Usher's $12K Puppy: Money Goes to Charity, Don't Worry

Singer Usher is the proud owner of a Goldendoodle puppy.

Of course, picking up one of the most popular breeds around cost him a lot -- $12,000, to be exact.

The good news? This purchase wasn't merely some extravagant celebrity buy, Usher picked up the trendy pooch at a charity auction.

He won the pup with a $12,000 bid, outbidding Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr to take the little guy home with him.

The money he paid goes to Pencils of Promise, which builds schools in impoverished nations.

Usher tweeted, "Poppy Raymond is what I'm think of namin' her ... however there are two gregarious 3- and 4-year-olds that will have the last say -- and the responsibility that comes with her."

Usher also donated a private dance lesson at the charity event.
