"My brother saw that story and he was like, 'Bruh, you gotta do something for this little girl, '" the rapper told WSB-TV.

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.

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

The young girl was shot at a bounce house party in April, tragically leaving her paralyzed from the waist down.

"I've been born ready for a puppy", Abriya said.

According to WSB-TV, on Thursday (08-10-17) Big Boi presented Miss Abriya Ellison with the pup bred from his kennel business.

Ellison's mother, Andreauna Douglas, said: "She been asking for one for the longest [time] and I know a puppy she can take care of and have responsibility for is going to do nothing but help her".

"One thing that struck me about Abriya is that her energy and her spirit was just up", Patton told Wilson.

In addition to paying her medical tab, the Outkast rapper gifted Ellis with a service puppy, that will help in her recovery.

"There's nothing like having a companion or a service dog, something that's therapeutic that you can love on, that can love back on you", Patton said. "She's been through a lot and to see how strong she is now, that was just like 'Oh my goodness". "She's definitely inspiring and it just touched our heart, so we're just trying to do what we can do to help".

Big Boi also agreed to pay to have Abriya's bathroom made handicap accessible.
