In Phoenix, police continue to investigate a report from Maricopa County Animal Care and Control concerning a 2-month-old husky puppy brought to the shelter on Friday night with a severe skull fracture and bleeding. The pup, dubbed BB Bear, has been placed in a medically induced coma after veterinarians determined he suffered a massive skull fracture.
According to the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control Facebook entry by Eva Boyle, authorities believe someone deliberately caused BB Bear’s injuries. If he recovers, he is likely to be blind and have no sense of smell; more permanent long term effects are possible.
“The vets at Phoenix Dog/Cat/Bird Hospital are doing EVERYTHING in their power to care for him and WE couldn’t be more grateful to the team there. A LOT of people, more than we could of imagined, have come forward to ask “what can we do?” The list of people wanting to give him a home is incredible. We do not know if he will EVER be available for adoption. We must first get him better and from there we will decide how we will place him in a forever.”
For anyone wanting to help, several options have been listed:
- Medical expense donations can be made to Two Pups Wellness Fund or Arizona Animal Rescue Mission….please do not contact the hospital directly.
- Report all abuse. If anyone knows who did this to the puppy, report it to the authorities
- Adopt a shelter pet. This pup may never be ready for adoption and there are hundreds of pets ready for a new home. What a great way to honor this little guy’s uphill battle at survival.
