The Story

Out of the frying pan and into the fire?  No sooner is Ever stable and her surgical and hospital bill covered than we have another emergency medical case.  Meet Bear.  This big, gentle boy was found in pool of blood, shot in the chest.  Rescue Brigade Becky B. quickly got Bear to the clinic.  He’s lost a lot of blood.  The bullet hit his shoulder blade, bounced off and lodged under the opposite armpit.  He also has a fractured radius that will require plating.  He has lost a lot of blood.  Bear is resting at the clinic on IV fluids and antibiotics. He is currently unable to stand, either too weak from the blood loss or from the pain in his leg.

We will find out more tomorrow. Meanwhile the shelter and vet clinic staff have fallen hard for this sweet boy.  They say he is a love bug, despite everything.  I'll update when we know more.

We were pretty sad to learn that Bear's leg had to be amputated.  When the surgeon got in there he found that one end of the bone was shattered into more than 40 pieces.  There was no way to make a repair.  We know that dogs do well with three legs and have had several "tripods" over the years.  Bear will be fine and for that we are grateful.  it's just heartbreaking that someone intentionally did this to him.

The veterinary staff reports that he is a super love bug.  They say he is a sweet and gentle giant and even with all he's been through remains very loving.  No grumbles from Bear!

We should have new pics of him tomorrow or Tuesday and will post when we do.  Thank you for your support and caring for Big Bear.
