All about Bear

Age: 1 year

A bit about me:
- Dogs okay, pending successful introduction.
- No cats/small animals
- Kids okay, should be old enough to respect body language.

Hi there, my name is Bear! People tell me I'm a good boy! That makes me happy and I wag my tail! I am a friendly boy who is still a puppy in many ways. My previous family didn't have enough time for me to get my energy out, so I do have a history of being a destructive chewer. I'll need lots of toys and plenty of enrichment to keep my brain and body engaged. I would love to have a job to do and might do great with a family living in a more rural environment where I have room to explore. I'm also still learning that it's okay to be alone. I can manage short absences, but I probably shouldn't be left by myself for your whole work day. The team here thinks I could do well in a home with older kids or other dogs, but cats are too fun to chase, so I shouldn't live with any of those. I promise that if you're willing to have patience with me, we will be the best of friends! I have so much love to give, I just need someone to share it with. I am so excited to go home to my new people; so please come get me soon!

Note that many dogs do not reach full size until they are about a year and a half old. The weight listed here is the dog's current weight.
