This adorable dog had been living on the streets for over eight years, during which time it had accumulated many health problems and had been through a lot. However, despite its hardships, it still wore a happy smile on its muzzle. One day, some people decided to help it.
They took the dog to the shelter, named him Bear, and started his recovery. Initially, he had huge mats on his fur, which they removed first. In addition, they found that the dog had heartworm and lymphoma – a malignant tumor. Then the vets gave him the first sad prognosis, that he had from three to 12 months left. But Bear had other plans.
