PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

In early October, a Siberian husky puppy was brought into the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) shelter with its head bashed in from a horrific case of dog abuse.

The 2-month-old puppy, which has been named “BB Bear,” is making a miraculous recovery from the incident.

“Do not read this as him being out of the woods,” MCACC contact Jose Santiago said in an email. “But he is doing much better than ANY of us could have expected.”

According to MCACC, Bear is now eating, drinking, and walking on his own.

“Basically we’ve been all in. And when you’re all in, you are prepared to do anything possible to save a life, whether it’s a dog’s life or a human’s life,” said one of Bear’s veterinarians.
