Family Given New Dog After Wiener Dog Dies in Bear Attack

Posted: Updated:

A happy ending for one northern Michigan family after their dog was killed by a bear.

It's an update on a story we first brought you last week.

Bradley the wiener dog was killed by a bear, while he was protecting two men who didn't see the bear while they were in the woods.

After we aired the story, Tammy O'Dell of Mancelona reached out to us.

Tammy had a wiener dog named Buddy she was looking to re-home, and felt as though the Force family would be a perfect fit for them after what they went through.

Last Friday, John Force went and picked up Buddy from Mancelona.

Lisa Force tells us Buddy has brought a spark back into both their family, and their other dogs lives.
