Sweet, Gentle Bear Needs a Home to Call His Own

6.5-year-old, male, large, German Shepherd
Good with other dogs: Yes
Good with children: Yes
Good with cats: Yes

Sweet Bear needs a place to spread out and hang out with his people. He’s been cooped up in small apartment, which is tough on a German Shepherd, even a mellow guy like Bear.

His previous owners tell us that Bear is a super sweet guy who just wants to be loved. The best part is he’s already housebroken, walks on a leash and is fine when left alone in the house. He’s not destructive, not a barker or chewer, just a handsome, sweet boy who really loves attention.

His owners tell us that Bear is good with children, as he currently lives with them. He also is OK with cats and other dogs. He does have some arthritis in his hips, so they are a little sensitive and he does take daily, low-cost medication.

Bear would do best in a home with a yard where he has room to roam, but is treated as a member of the family and gets to sleep and hang out with his people indoors. He’s calm and mellow, so no overly exuberant children or large dogs that might run into him and cause him pain.

If you can provide a loving, indoor home for Bear, please fill out our online application to get the approval process started. We will only schedule meet and greets with an approved application. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Many juggle family and full-time careers while volunteering at Saving Paws. Please be patient, as sometimes it takes up to 5 days to process an application.

About Saving Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

"Saving Paws" rescue specializes in German Shepherd Dogs and Belgian Malinois. These are the two primary breeds used in military and law enforcement service worldwide. We also partner with other rescues and can assist in locating your perfect pet.

"Saving Paws" is a registered 501c3 non-profit corporation. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Donations and adoption fees offset the high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses. By adopting from “Saving Paws", you become our partner in the rescue. You can make a difference in both financial contribution and working to save deserving animals. Adopting a rescue dog saves two lives. The K-9 friend that you adopted and another that can be brought in by the space created. Open your heart and adopt today.

"Saving Paws" primarily obtains dogs from local "High Kill" shelters. We are often there last hope. Our adoptions have gone on become service dogs, search and rescue dogs, sport dogs, AKC title holders and of course cherished family pets and protectors. Please consider a rescue dog and give these wonderful animals a second chance.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Saving Paws is a registered 501c3 not for profit corporation. All personnel are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Donations of food, supplies and dollars always appreciated and allow us to help more dogs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Currently our resources do not allow one central facility for our operations. We have many dogs in foster care and board others at the Canine Country Club. They are located in Phoenix, Arizona. All adoptions are by appointment. We do our best to be available and accommodate your schedule. However, being volunteer, we ask for your patience and assistance in all matters. A minor inconvenience is a small price to pay for helping a dog in need.

"Saving Paws" also participates in numerous adoption events year around. We will post these to our website and to this venue as they are scheduled.

Our Adoption Process...

"Saving Paws" works individually with each potential adopter to assure a good match and successful placement. The specific adoption process can vary and includes:

* Telephone and or email consultation.
* "Meet & Greet" with selected animals. We request that all family members and pets be present.
* Adoption application and reference check.
* Home visit
* Completion of the adoption process.
* Any additional follow up or assistance required.

Adoption fees and donations offset the extremely high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses.
