No one wanted this dying, 16-year-old shelter dog — until one family took a chance


No one wanted to adopt this dying, 16-year-old dog at the shelter. His fur was matted and missing, and he was just a skeleton of a dog. But soon things changed for Bear. A family came in that decided to take a chance on him. Apparently all Bear needed was a little care and a little love. This is a transformation you have to see to believe.

This was Bear’s kennel record; just an older dog in need of some help.
