Help This Teen Get The Adorable Puppy She So Desperately Wants

All she needs is 100,000 retweets.

Clara Foster has a favor to ask.

Just retweet one of her messages and the 17-year-old from Houston will be forever grateful. You see, it's all part of a bet with her dad.

Clara is desperate to have a new puppy, since her beloved 13-year-old springer spaniel named Fuchsia was recently put down. 

So she asked her father, Tony Foster, a professor at Lone Star College in Kingwood, how many retweets she'd need before he caved in to her demands.

He initially suggested the figure of 1 million. After some tough negotiations via text message, they eventually settled on 100,000:

The senior dance major at the High School for Performing and Visual Arts is already a third of the way toward getting her dream doggie companion, which she says will come from her cousin's dog's litter.

And if any of the celebrities she's tweeted over the last few days end up backing her campaign, then she's sure to slay the target in the very near future.

"I got about 100 the first night and I thought that was crazy, but I didn't know it would go as far as it has gone," she told The Huffington Post via email.

"I think my dad didn't realize that this was even possible for me," she added, "but he is beginning to realize that he might owe me a puppy!"
