Save Little Bear - Happy Days Rescue
Little Bear is in bad shape, but she is showing us she is a fighter. Despite her pain and what she has been through, she is still wagging her tail and giving kisses. As scared and hurt as she is, she wants to live!
If she is going to survive this ordeal, Little Bear needs to see specialists this week. She is going to need several surgeries. The cost will be extreme and the recovery long. We know it is worth it, though, because this little baby deserves a chance at a wonderful life. Won't you please help us help Little Bear?

She is actually becoming quite famous. This campaign has been shared over 700 times on Facebook and she even had an article written about her in Pet Rescue Report, so people from all over are reading her story.

The good news is that on Tuesday, the waiting was over and she had her surgery! She came through this first procedure with flying colors! She had a lateral ear resection, also called a ZEPP procedure. The ear flap was also removed along with all the surrounding dead tissue. We are hoping that through this procedure her hearing in that ear will be preserved, although there is a great deal of swelling at this point so it is too early to tell.
We are hopeful that the worst is over for this sweet girl. She will need multiple follow-up visits and procedures in the coming months as well as continued monitoring as she continues to grow. She will be leaving Wilson's tomorrow and going to her new medical foster home to get all the care that she will need. It's hard to imagine that a little over a week ago we were told there was no chance for this little dog to survive and she should be put down. Thankfully, that answer was not acceptable to the volunteers involved and because of them this little angel will walk out of that hospital tomorrow on the first steps to her wonderful new life.
We continue to be amazed and humbled by the support and love that has been shown to Little Bear. Her page has been shared over 600 times and generous donations continue to come in for this little dog. She has touched so many people's hearts and although her fight is not over, the odds seem finally to be in her favor. Thank you all for continuing to share, pray and donate for Little Bear. It has definitely been a large group effort to save the life of one little dog!
