Bear is currently covered in bloody wounds from fly strikes. Poor Bear keeps biting the bothersome wounds until they become infectious sores.
In Indianapolis, it is illegal to keep dogs outside in extreme climates. We hope Bear is rescued from this dreadful plight.
Let’s spread the word and help him get rescued.
Update: Bear’s owners were scared of the consequences of their illegal action of keeping the dog out in extreme climate. When his condition got really worse, they simply surrendered him to a kill shelter and escaped all charges. But Bear’s sick health increased his chances of being euthanized.

Finally, Indy Great Pyrenees Rescue intervened and rescued Bear! They are helping him recover but fear that he might have heartworm and Lyme disease.
They hope that he finds a nice forever home to help him heal. Do you think his owner should be let go scot-free?
Check out the video below to watch Bear’s helpless situation and his rescue status explained by the rescue director.

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:
We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!
One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.
It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.
After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.
There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.
There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂
10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet
Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.
While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.
These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.
When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.
This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.
