A Washington dog nicknamed Baby Bear by his rescuers is in foster care and still looking to be reunited with his family.
Many had reported about a very thin dog, nothing but skin and bones in the Evans Creek are of Carbonado, WA. Hikers and campers were concerned and reaching out to anyone who could possibly help this scared dog who would not let anyone near him.
Amanda Guarascio and Dylan Parkinson from Enumclaw saw the dog on social media and decided to do something about it.
The dog was extremely frightened and would not let the would-be rescuers near him. It was cold, temperatures in the freezing range. It took them several icy cold days to win his trust, but eventually Baby Bear let Amanda touch and pet him. It was getting cold and around 9pm on the 2nd day when she was finally able to put a leash around his neck and carry him back to the waiting truck.
Amanda wrote in a blog post, “Finally, I got right up next to Bear. He growled a little bit, so I started whimpering and yawning (which is a calming signal), and continued to slowly get closer and closer until I was rested up against the sweet little Baby Bear!”
Baby Bear was rushed to a waiting vet for treatment. He weighed 57 lbs which is emaciated for a dog of his size.
Nobody knows how the dog go to this remote camping area. Was he dumped? Did he get lost on a family camping trip? Fall out the back of a truck while off-roading?
