Meet Paddington

Add to favourites

“It’s nice having a bear about the house.”

Paddington is an extra-large bear looking for a home to call his own! Paddington is a happy-go-lucky, gentle giant who is working on his figure! He is an ESPECIALLY strong dog and has very limited recall and leash-walking skills (he pulls VERY hard). He requires a strong owner who is able to handle his large, bear-like figure on walks.

Paddington lived around other animals in his previous home but can be reactive to other dogs and would likely do best as the only dog in the home. Paddington has moderate energy and lived most of his previous life outdoors. He beats to his own drum and likes to sniff anywhere and everywhere. He is still working on “marking” behaviours as he has just been neutered and would benefit from a belly-band during this transition.

Paddington came to us with a bit of a hot-spot on his tail, a mild skin infection, a small mass on his left hip, and a broken canine tooth. Paddington is currently recovery from a dental surgery. While the veterinarian isn’t concerned about his tail or hip mass, it is something his future family should monitor and be aware of as he enters his senior years (he is estimated to be between 4-8 years old).

Paddington loves human interaction. He is very sweet and food-motivated. He adores his cozy beds and would love a peaceful home and lots of new smells – where he can ease into retirement. Apply to adopt today! <3
