Facts about BEAR

  • Breed: Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Bear is a good natured boy who is also calm, clean, very easy going and enjoys car rides. Bear is not shy and communicates with a gentle bark when he needs something.

Bear would make a great companion to a semi-active person or family or a senior person as well, as long as he gets daily exercise and will be a friend to another dog who matches his low to medium level of energy.

Bear 's entire life has been hard and he's tired of it! We are looking for someone to make it up to him and give him all the love and comfort that he deserves. He will repay you with unconditional love! Shepherds can live up to 14 years so you will have a long time to enjoy your faithful friend.

No kitties for him please since he thinks it's fun to chase them.
