Meet Sweet Bear, a loving, older Cocker Spaniel boy about 10 years old who has suffered serious neglect. He was rescued by Black Tie Boston Terrier Rescue when a volunteer was driving home one night in October and came across him lying in the middle of a dark road. He was exhausted, terribly matted, couldn't walk and was barely hanging onto life. To groom him, they sedated him and took off 6 plus pounds of fur that was loaded with urine, fecal and sticks. A huge thank you to this volunteer for saving him and getting him to their vet.
Sadly, he was not microchipped. With an unknown past, we can only assume that he may have had a good owner at one time and then somehow ended up with someone who didn't care and severely neglected his grooming and medical needs.
X-rays were done with clear margins showing no signs of cancer in his lungs. A definite plus as we need to do a surgery to remove a bleeding granulized mass on his neck. He does have Pancreatitis, cataracts and dry eye. Luckily, he is heart worm negative with no signs of tick disease. Our main concern now is his Pancreatitis issue and getting him transitioned over to a proper dog diet as it seems he was only fed human food and no dog food.
As sad as things have been for this poor sweet boy, someone must have cared when he was younger. He is neutered, pretty well house trained, good with dogs and cats don't seem to bother him. Bear has a long road of getting through vet care, recovery time and then we will see if he can be adopted out. Please show your kindness by donating to his vet care so that we can take care of his needed medical issues to make him more comfortable. Your kindness is greatly appreciated, please donate as shown above.
