"Bear" is a handsome 13-year old male Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix who was surrendered by his owner on October 5, 2016 along with several of his best 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, beautiful brown eyes, white shading on his muzzle, and large floppy ears. This older gentleman has a sweet, easygoing personality, and he enjoys attention and soothing baby-talk :) "Bear" walks gently on a leash (albeit fairly slow). He had a flea allergy when he entered our shelter on October 5th and was missing a bit of hair on his back. Thanks to flea medication and soothing baths, Bear's coat is once again thick and a a gorgeous shade of dark chocolate. "Bear" has also been enjoying some of the gourmet food that our HSOV kennel techs prepare, so he has also gained some weight and looks terrific! "Bear" has a soft growth on his chest (which doesn't seem to bother him at all), but we have listed him as a 'Special Needs Dog' for that reason. "Bear" weighs approximately 55j-60 lbs., and he has already been neutered. These updated photos were taken on November 16, 2016.
