We all know that puppies are small animals who will always be there to express their unconditional love, not just for their owners, but also for others they perceive to be weak.
When a gorgeous puppy came with a creature in its jaws, the shocked dog owners discovered they had saved a baby bear that was just a few days old, and they couldn’t stop smiling.
The couple had no idea what to do with the bear cub, so they sent it to the Virginia Wildlife Center.
They informed him at the facility that the bear was only one or two weeks old and that he needed to be admitted and cared for by a specialised rehabilitation team. Amanda Nicholson, the Center’s director, had this to say about it:
“This has been an excellent example of collaboration to meet the demands of a wild animal.”
The tiny bear’s health was usually fine; he just had a little case of dehydration, but the medical personnel made sure he got the care he needed.
He needed to stay in an incubator for a few days to help him maintain his temperature, prevent infections, and grow up without the hazards of not being breastfed by his mother.
The team made sure he had a well-balanced meal and all of the nutrients he needed for a healthy growth.
The bear gained weight and was building its muscles after a few weeks of special treatment, and it was ready to be transported to its environment, where the team hoped a mother bear would take it in and love it like another youngster.
Orphaned animals are cared for by a dedicated team until they reach the age where they can only live in their natural habitat.
Fortunately, he was welcomed with open arms, and the little bear is now settled in his new home with his adoptive mother and sibling, with whom he explores the region and embarks on adventures. He is now entirely free, joyful, and healthy.
Although the Virginia Wildlife Center treats animals saved by pets on a regular basis, the majority of them arrive damaged.
“We treat over 3,000 wild animals at our hospital each year, many of them are sick or injured, and we always have a team of veterinarians on hand to administer treatment or surgery as needed,” they said from the rescue facility.
The team is pleased to have cared for a small bear that weighed less than a kilo when it came, but they are certain that it will eventually weigh more than 200 kilos due to its size.
Despite the fact that the cause for his orphanage is unclear, we must acknowledge that he is alive owing to a brave small dog that did not hesitate to assist him. Without a doubt, a lovely story with a happy conclusion thanks to an innocent creature.
