found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
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.
