Hi my name is Bear, I’m 3 years old and I have heart worms.
A few weeks ago, I though I was going for a car ride with my daddy but he took me to the shelter and left me behind. But before he left he told the people there that I was people and dog aggressive. Normally surrendered dogs get 3 days before we die but I was one of the lucky ones because my new mom, who is also a rescue lady saw my picture and came to visit me. I was scared and I kept pacing but she knew I was just a scared little boy and she decided to take me for a walk. We walked past other dogs and people but I was too excited to be going for a walk with her that I didn’t pay any attention to them. When she put me back in the kennel I was so sad because I thought I did something bad to make her leave me.
The next day she came back to see me and this time she took me with her! I don’t understand why my daddy left me, I promise I was a good boy but I guess he knew I was sick and didn’t want to pay for the medicine to make me better but my new mom is trying to raise the money so I can get rid of these nasty worms in my heart. I really love my new family and have a lot of brothers and sisters to play with! Mom has told me that she is looking for a special family to make me part of their family but I have to get well first. Mom says that she will never let anyone leave me or hurt me again, that she and my new daddy will make sure I am happy with whoever adopts me. Can you help me get better?
