Man selling classic Ford Model A to pay for dog's surgery

A man is selling his 1929 Ford Model A to pay for his 11-year-old dog's surgery.

Matthew Clark is selling the car his grandfather gave him after his dog Drake developed degenerative arthritis. 

Clark said he always said he wouldn't pay more than $1,200 for surgeries, but he didn't think twice about selling the car to help Drake.

"I know he'd do the same for me if he were in my position," he said.

Clark said he knows his grandfather would rather see the car being loved by someone else.

Drake had multiple surgeries for ACLS and replacement of his meniscus with rubber bands. Now he gets weekly laser therapies.
