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?
