A volunteer writes: Bear is really a beautiful young dog. This sentence is so plain but so true…. He is gorgeous, well made, healthy, the perfect weight and most attractive. Still, he was found as a stray, so we do not know too much about him. All what we have on our plate, right now, is a youngster we have to find a caring and loving home for…Bear is a “good “puppy, full of life and who loves to play with people and with dogs. He can be a little shy at first then, he will go all the way…He walks quite well on the leash, does not grab it and occasionally mouths very slightly. He can sit on command, takes treats nicely and does not mind at all the eye of my camera. He does not seem used to a lap but definitively did learn and ended up smooching on the side walk with me. Like ANY puppy, Bear needs love, care, training, time and commitment on the part of his new owners. This is the only way to grow into a balanced adult dog, a pet one will want for life. Come and meet Bear at the Manhattan Care Center. He so want to start his life again with you.
