My story

Bear is an arrival from a cruelty hoarding case and has lived for years with other dogs. There are many things that he will need to learn in his new environment and would do best in a family with another dog. He is a beautiful sweet but timid Special Needs Dog and he will require a special someone.
Bear has a condition called Megaesophagus:
Megaesophagus is an enlargement of the esophagus. Food and water are not pushed down to the stomach.Food can be regurgitation can result, can result in aspiration pneumonia.
This can be managed with softening food, elevating the food, and medication to help muscle tone in the esophagus. This routine is necessary in varying degrees and is not as cumbersome as it may sound. Mostly, it requires understanding and diligence on the part of the owner.
If interested, a volunteer with Megaesophagus experience will be a guide.
Ultimately, he came from a neglectful home with too many dogs, and has been forgotten about. He deserves now, the appropriate attention and care he has been denied for so long.
