"Bear" is a sweet 13-year old male Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix who was surrendered by his owner on October 5, 2016 along with several friends who shared his previous home "Bear" has a chocolate brown short smooth coat, a long tail, and an adorable face with a liver-colored nose, white shading on his muzzle, and large floppy ears. This older gentleman has a friendly, easygoing personality, and he enjoys attention and soothing baby-talk. "Bear" walks gently on a leash (albeit very slow). He has some skin issues (possibly flea allergies) and is missing a bit of hair on his back. "Bear" also has a soft growth on his chest, so we have listed him temporarily as a 'Special Needs Dog' "Bear" weighs 52.6 lbs., and he has been neutered. UPDATE: We took new photos of "Bear" on November 16, 2016 and have posted them. He has been treated for his flea allergy and also been enjoying some great food since his arrival, and "Bear" looks (and feels) like a different dog than he did on October 5th
