Thank you everyone who supported Bear! He is at home getting better everyday. You all made this possible with all your well wishes prayers and donations. We are very grateful to each and every one of you.
Hi everyone, sorry for lack of recent updates. It's been long busy days. Well, Bear is home for a trial run. We are not getting too excited yet because this is still a very fragile time and he could easily end up back in the ICU. Hopefully not but a real possibility! He still has a tube down his throat so we can administer water and medications. He MUST be able to eat on his own for this to be successful. He has managed to take a few teeny nibbles of boiled hamburger . Thank you all for everything.
To our family, friends and complete strangers,
We can not begin to thank you enough for your prayers, support, encouragement and donations. The continued acts of compassion, kindness, selflessness and generosity have literally blown us away. So many people continue to come together to try to help Bear and our family. We are beyond touched and you all will be forever in our hearts.
Also , thank you to everyone who continues to share this page to keep the word spreading.
I'm attaching a video of Bear from happier days so that you all can see him healthy and happy. The video is of him with Zorra who was his best buddy. He loved her so much. Zorra passed away 11 months ago.
Also, an update on Bear's condition. He tolerated the blood transfusion well. He has had a very tiny improvement in his blood work. He still is unable to eat but hasn't vomited in over 24 hours. Hopefully more time to start healing is all he needs. The doctors say he may need to remain hospitalized for another week for a couple of reasons, one being that he needs to be fed intra-venously.
Our little Chihuahua Bear was attacked 2/1/14 by a large German Shepard. Bear is only 12 pounds. Bear was on a leash and the Shepard's owner was not holding her dog's leash. This happened in the blink of an eye. We can not locate the owner's. Our little guy sustained massive injuries and is fighting for his life at Massachusetts Veterinary Hospital in Woburn. He has had abdominal surgery and numerous procedures. His doctor's say he needs a lot more time and TLC in the hospital in order to get better. He may also need another exploratory abdominal surgery and a Cat Scan. We have run out of money to keep going. The doctor's think he has a fighting chance to survive but just needs more time under their care. He is the sweetest little dog and loves life. Can you please help us so we can get our boy home and healthy? Bear loves the summer time and loves basking in the sun. We want him to come home so he can have a wonderful summer and over come this horrid attack. He was SO SO excited to go out for a walk (he hadn't been on a walk for a while since we just had our first baby a few months ago). It was a sunny mild day so we thought it was a great idea to take the dogs and baby out. Within a minute or two of our walk Bear was attacked. We do not want anything bad to happen to the Shepard. We want the owner's to be more responsible so this does not happen again. Our heart's are broken seeing Bear go through this. Can you please help? Even a few dollars will help.
