Bear's Story...
At first glance you may see pit bullish but once you are with him a while you will realize it is Boxer features. He has many Jack Russel features also. Bear only weighs 40 lbs. Bear is a great dog with a lot of energy that does not fit with his current home. He would best fit with an active family looking for a hiking buddy or a running partner or a family with older children that could play fetch with him. Anyone who is into agility training/competition would have a winner with Bear. Bear would prefer a fenced in yard where he can run freely to work off his energy. Bear gets excited and runs in the house running into furniture just like a Jack Russel. With Bear born in May 2015, he still is very much puppy. Bear needs to learn when off leash to come back and not take off running. He never is off a lead therefore when off lead he runs off. He needs basic house training manners, not to chew (eat) items not his and counter surfing. He lives with a 2-1/2 year old and does great with him. Bear has never growled or attempted to nip at the child. He lets the child roll all over him, lay on top of him and sit on him. Bear loves any attention he can get. Bear has had something in his past that will not allow him to be in a normal crate. He will struggle not to be put in a crate and then work until he gets out of the crate. His home now put a 10' x 6' out door kennel in the basement and Bear is fine staying in this all day while his owner is at work. BHS is posting Bear as a courtesy post in order to find Bear a safe, perfect and forever home. If you think Bear would be a good fit in your famaily please contact the Bedford Humane Society at 540-586-6100, or go to to fill out an adoption application. This is a courtesy post.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bear, a Bedford Boxer/Jack Russell Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Jack Russell Terrier for sale in Bedford, or seeking a Boxer/Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Bedford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bedford already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bedford breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer/Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Boxer/Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bedford paves the way for another one to be saved.
