Bear's Story...
Meet Handsome Bear! Bear was born August 8 of 2008. His owner surrendered him to Angels on Wheels in Mid February because they were being evicted due to some serious health issues the husband had which landed him in a nursing home. Bear is a very easy-going, low energy dog who loves nothing more but to lay on the couch by himself or preferably cuddled up next to one of his peeps in the foster home. He's fabulous on a leash, no pulling. He gets excited to go on walks but doesn't go very far. He is house trained, gets along with other dogs and kitties. His previous mom was home during the day, so we feel he would do best in a home where someone was home more. Although he hasn't been around young children, we think he would be great with them given his beautiful personality. We aren't sure how he would do with all the noise that goes with very young children, so we feel a home with children 7+ would be best.

Bear weighed 90 pounds when he arrived to us on February 8, 2017, and the vet feels he should weigh between 60-65 pounds. We have him on a diet now, but you have to go slow. he had a bit of a skin infection when he arrived. The vet put him on an antibiotic and medicated baths and his skin is all healed up now, and he has a beautiful coat. Would you be able to open your heart and home to this once loved and deserving boy?

3-6-17 - Bear is down too 73 pounds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bear, a Naperville Border Collie/Great Pyrenees dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Great Pyrenees for sale in Naperville, or seeking a Border Collie/Great Pyrenees dog from a breeder in Naperville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Border Collie/Great Pyrenees breeders who help with Border Collie/Great Pyrenees rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Naperville paves the way for another one to be saved.
