Bear, a 1-year-old pit pull, was hit by a car and promptly rushed to a nearby animal hospital. Some might call it fate that 15-year-old Katie Frame's mother just happened to work there.
Sadly, the accident left Bear horribly disfigured - his injuries threatened to leave him blind. Bear's previous owner was unable to pay for his surgery or continue treatment, so Bear was signed over to the veterinarian in charge of his care. Rawhide Rescue, Inc., a local rescue organization, offered to pay for Bear's surgery as long as he had a home to go to.
