Bear is 9 years old. His birthday is December 25th.
Bear was rescued from a horrible living situation back in Harrowsmith, Ontario where he lived with a house full of animals including a donkey. His mom came across a post on the pug group page I belonged to back in Ontario that said this 9 month old boy needed a new home, so she emailed the lady and set up a time to visit. We took Bear’s brother, Harley, with us and as soon as they saw Bear she said that they could have Bear (known as Teddy Bear at the time). They offered her money and she refused. She said she knew he would be taken care of and that she didn’t need money.
This little guy had never seen a patch of grass his whole 9 months until they brought him home. Bear has been diagnosed with a severe collapsed trachea 3 years ago and they have been treating it with proper medications with very positive outcomes so far. Doctor says surgery is not 100% and very expensive and as long as the meds are working there’s no need for surgery. Although they know their time is limited with him and one day they will lose him to this horrible problem, they love and cherish every day they have with him and are so thankful they’ve had 8 amazing years so far.
