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.
This time, a lovely dog arrived with a creature in its mouth, and the puppy’s delighted owners discovered that what they had saved was 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 generally fine; he barely showed signs of dehydration, but the medical personnel made sure he got all the treatment he needed.
He needed to spend a few days in an incubator to help him maintain his temperature, prevent infections, and grow without the hazards associated with not receiving breast milk from 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.

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.
