Robert Griffin III replaced Magic Johnson and won a new pet in Indian Wells, Calif.

According to a story by Andrew L. John in The Desert Sun, the Redskins quarterback served as an emergency keynote speaker when the NBA Hall-of-Famer had to cancel an appearance at a silent auction to raise funds for the Desert Christian Academy.

An encounter with a Maltipoo puppy spurred Griffin III to submit a winning bid of $2,250 for the dog and acquire a companion for his Yorkshire Terrier.

Griffin III also donated a pair of autographed socks that sold for $10,000 at auction, contributing to a total of more than $200,000 raised for the private school.
