Bear is a curious boy who aspires to be a world explorer. But he'll temporarily settle for exploring any new human friend's apartment.
Taken home for a sleepover, this sweet boy will spend the first 20 minutes sniffing his new surroundings. Then he'll ask his new person for petting, cuddles and lots of affection - which he's quick to return. Chin, chest and butt scratches are his favorites.
Bear's curiosity extends to wanting to learn from his human friends, tilting his head to try to figure out what they're doing and what those funny sounds are.
An energetic boy, he loves going for jogs. He hasn't been observed with many other dogs, cats or kids yet, but he pays little attention to dogs he sees on the trail. He answers to the 'sit' command and seems house trained.
With his infectious smile and expressive eyes, Bear will be a wonderful addition to a family ready to return the love he's ready to give. Come take this boy for a walk straight into your heart.
