Bear came in on transfer via our Drive for Lives program from the Lower Mainland where he was found as a stray. He is approximately two years old and is a big, fuzzy ball of fun! He has lots of energy and loves to rock around his yard with staff, or go out for walks and meet new friends! He is SO well behaved, whoever takes this boy will be SO lucky.
Bear is a very smart dog who needs lots of physical and mental stimulating to thrive. He knows his ‘sit’ cue and is great to walk on-leash, but still needs some more training, especially on recall. He does jump up and can get a little bit mouthy when he is over-excited, but he’s easily redirected onto chasing a ball around the yard or a fun toy! Bear is so much fun to play with, he’s very attentive to what you’re doing and eager to join in on the fun, he knows so many fun tricks. He’s currently enjoying a kids pool filled with water and toys, it’s a riot to watch him splash around and enjoy the sun!
Bear would be fine in a home with other dogs given proper introductions and a with a good temperament match as he has been friendly with the other dogs at the shelter. Sadly, Bear would not do well in home with children, cats or other small animals as he has a high prey drive.
Are you looking for a happy, energetic dog to add to your family? Bear is waiting! Send in an application online today or come and visit him in person from Tuesday – Sunday, 12pm – 3pm.
