Bear joined Ruff Start Rescue in November 2018. He has had a difficult time since his foster family opened their hearts and home to him. You see, soon after joining his “family,” it was apparent something was very wrong. After many tests, ultrasounds and needle pokes; Bear was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate and suspected prostate cancer in the days to follow. Most days Bear is very comfortable and enjoys spending time playing and cuddling with his family. Because of his condition, he is more prone to urinary infections which require antibiotics and also anti-inflammatory medications.
Bear has also been diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia. He does good with his elevated bed but sometimes this big sweety forgets and tries to jump up on the couch and that never ends well.
Bear has stolen the hearts of his foster family and will spend his remaining time with them. He does not need a home, he has a wonderful, loving home. Bear does, however, need to be kept comfortable, his anti-inflammatory medications are costly as he is a big boy! This medication not only helps with his enlarged prostate but also body aches he endures with his age. If you would like to help with Bear’s care, please consider sponsoring this big boy with an even bigger smile!
