Urgent Critical Medical Care Needed

AZ

$5,496.00 raised of $10,000.00

An unconscious and comatose, 2-month-old puppy was brought to Maricopa County Animal Care and Control on Friday Oct 6th. BB Bear (aka Phoenix) was rushed to Phoenix Dog/Cat/Bird Hospital where it was confirmed that this sweet innocent puppy's skull was bashed in by something like a bat or tire iron, causing not only the top of the Skull to be broken but the bottom as well. Arizona Animal Rescue Mission and Two Pups Wellness have partnered up to cover the medical costs and care for this boy. For the last 10 days, he has been hospitalized and receiving 24/7 care. His story has been traveling around the world. We are getting emails and calls from ever direction asking about this sweet Pup and how can they help and when will he be up for adoption. 

On October 13th, we were given some of the most hopeful news yet. Three top neurologist from around the country have reviewed BB Bears records and all have stated that because of where the injury to the skull was, it appears that there was no damage to the brain stem. The area of the brain that was affected given his age, HAS the ability to rejuvenate over time. It has been recommended to keep him heavily sedated for the next 7 days. This will allow the swelling to continue to go down and for the blood clot to be adsorbed into his body. Once the time period of rest is up, the doctors will begin to bring him out of sedation.

So as you can imagine, for everyone involved and committed we want to follow the advise of the three neurologists and give BB Bear a chance because there is HOPE. With that being said, it is going to require a great deal of funding. Arizona Animal Rescue Mission (AARM), Two Pups Wellness Fund and the doctors at Phoenix/Dog/Cat/Bird Hospital are doing everything we can financially to support BB Bear. All of us are extremely grateful to you, the community, for all of your support and love. It truly has been amazing to see all of us coming together for this precious guy.

May we ask YOU our AARMy, if you have not yet donated to BB Bear, would you please consider a donation to help save this boy's life. Every little bit helps and 100% of all donations will go directly towards his care.

  • Yet another amazing 48hrs for our guy BB Bear. Yesterday he was completely sassy and a brat. (Yep he is a puppy) He ripped out his own feeding tube. Guess he was ready for the real deal.....food in a bowl. Sorry for the photo quality but this is remarkable. On a personal note he was able to pass his first bowl movement totally on his own. These are just some of his major milestones over the last 2 days. More info and updates to come. Thank you again BB Bear community for everything!!! Thank you Phoenix Dog/Cat/Bird Hospital for the awesome news and video.

  • Today we received remarkable video from Phoenix Dog/Cat/Bird Hospital. As you can see our BB Bear is really trying hard to move. He still needs to build his strength and this will take time. We are hopeful that things will continue to move in all these positive directions. The last few days have been astonishing with his progress and we remain very hopeful as he is our miracle baby. We are still not sure about the seeing and smelling, this is going to take some time. But one thing is for sure.....you can see he is one strong little guy and definitely isn't giving up.

    If you would like to help BB Bear continue to fight, will you please consider donating to his care if you have not done already done so. BB Bear and all of us would certainly appreciate. 

    We can't begin to thank you enough the BB Bear community for all of your support. Keep it coming and we will keep fighting right along side of him.

  • We are please to share, that our miracle boy, over the last 48 hours has been removed from sedation and is now up and attempting to walk around. He still has his feeding tube but has begun to eat a little on his own. He is weighing in around 8.6 lbs.  We are so overwhelmed by his progress.

    He will however still need to be hospitalized for at least another 2 weeks at an average cost of $700.00 a day. They will be monitoring and continuing to give him antibiotics as there is still a concern for meningitis. When ever there is this significant amount of brain damage and swelling meningitis can settle in. Again we can't even begin to thank you enough for your support! Lisa
