In October of 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, we found an abandoned dog. He was in the fenced back yard of a house that had been foreclosed upon, the owners having simply moved out, leaving this wonderful animal behind to starve.He was hungry, scared and completely covered with dirty, matted fur, yet open and loving. We took him from this horrible situation, got him cleaned up, checked out with a vet and brought him home to try and find a loving family for him.He never left.Bear has been a member of our family ever since that day we found him. This dog was put through so much torment, left outside to die in the worst hurricane on record, and yet he has the most open and loving temperament you have ever seen. In the almost 3 years he has been with us, I have never once seen an aggressive side to his nature. Groomers love him, guests to our house love him and, even when we welcomed our daughter into this world, he would bathe her feet with his kisses.On the morning of June 19th, this loving family member was brutally attacked and mauled by a pit bull. A neighbor tried to help break up the attack and was bitten herself by this out of control animal. As soon as Bear could get away, he stumbled home; bleeding from several gaping wounds, dragging a now useless rear leg behind him.We immediately carried him to the Animal Health Center in Madison, where Dr. BJ Cash began his assessment. Bear had sustained severe trauma to his chest and shoulder areas with crushing bites and deep lacerations. He was missing a large amount of flesh from his right under arm and had lost considerable blood. After X-ray, it was found that while his rear leg was not broken, it had been ripped out of the hip socket and, with the power of the pit bull attack, all of the associated tissue and muscle that should hold it in place had been destroyed.He will need surgery to repair this damage after he his wounds heal somewhat.As of right now, the hospital bills are over $1200.00. We do not have the money for this, nor do we have any monetary means to provide the continued care and medications he will need through this convalescence. The surgery he desperately requires will be thousands of dollars alone.It has been suggested that we just put him down and, after staying up most of the night, I had agreed to. But Bear has never given up. He has always been a loving family member even in the face of the hardships he has been through. So I won't give up either.We would like to ask for donations to help Bear recover. Anything will help. The contact info is:Animal Health Center1146 Highway 51,Madison, MS 39110(601)856-8317Please help us save him. Thanks.
