Bear's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Bear's Story...
"Bear" is a 1½-yo neutered male Siberian Husky/GSD who is playful, energetic and happy-go-lucky. Bear is friendly with all people, including strangers at his home. He does like to jump up on people out of enthusiasm when he first meets them, but he has not had any formal training and the jumping is a fairly easy behavior to curb.

Bear loves children and craves being petted and hugged. He does have a strong herding instinct, however, so when children get rowdy and start to run, he might run after them and jump or softly nip. Bear was in a home with a 5-yr old boy for a few days recently and did well with him as long as his grandmother was there to supervise and make sure that the boy didn't run from Bear.

Bear is great with other dogs--not dominant or aggressive--and loves to play and be chased. His owners used to take him to the dog park where he always did well. Bear was fine with the dogs he met at GSRSV's rescue ranch. (See elsewhere on this page for a video of Bear walking with the GSRSV dogs.)

Bear is NOT good with cats, unlike previously reported on this Website. He is also not good with livestock.

Bear is housetrained and was an inside dog for about six months, where he was free to roam the house. Again, he has never received any formal training and still likes to jump up on people. Bear does pull hard on leash and needs work in this area. He gets excited and pulls towards other dogs he sees when on leash, but only out of a desire to meet the dog.

Bear rides fine in the car, but most of his trips have been short ones and he appeared somewhat nauseous following the approx 45 min drive to GSRSV's rescue ranch. Likely, he just needs a little more experience riding in a car to be OK on long-distance rides.

Bear loves to play fetch, and does bring the ball back and drop it for another throw.

Bear's owners purchased him from a private party at about 8 weeks old. They sought a new home for him through GSRSV because they did not have the time or the experience to train Bear and wanted him to be in a home where he's allowed inside and paid more attention to.

A woman in Roseville adopted Bear on March 17, but an unexpected death in the family forced her to return Bear to GSRSV. He will likely be staying at GSRSV's rescue ranch until he is re-adopted. Bear's adoption fee is $210.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bear, a Pleasant Grove German Shepherd Dog/Siberian Husky dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Siberian Husky for sale in Pleasant Grove, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Siberian Husky dog from a breeder in Pleasant Grove.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pleasant Grove 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 Pleasant Grove 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 German Shepherd Dog/Siberian Husky breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Siberian Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pleasant Grove paves the way for another one to be saved.
