Abused husky puppy waking up and starting to eat, animal rescue says

Arizona Animal Rescue Mission is asking for donations to help BB Bear recover.

The Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, and Arizona Animal Rescue Mission shared some "wonderful news" Sunday evening about the abused 2-month-old husky puppy named BB Bear.

BB Bear has been in a medically induced coma after being brought to the county shelter with his skull bashed in. But a video posted by MCACC and the AARM showing BB Bear awake, although heavily sedated, and eating on his own.

According to AARM, BB Bear drank water from a bowl and ate even more later Sunday night.

The news brings even more hopeful relief to a heartbreaking story after neurologists said it appears BB Bear suffered no damage to his brain stem.

According to a Facebook post, given BB Bear's age, the area of the brain that was affected has the ability to recover over time.

"This is a HUGE step in the right direction. He still has such a long way to go rebuilding his skills, but this is so promising," AARM wrote Sunday. "Today is a great day for all. Tears of joy from all of us at AARM, Two Pups Wellness Fund and Phoenix Dog/Cat/Bird Hospital."

The organization is asking for donations, 100 percent of which will go directly to BB Bear’s care. You can donate at AARM’s website or on their Facebook page
