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 dogs, and good with cats.
Hello, my name is Bear. I would like to find a fur-ever home that understands that I am a shy gentleman at the moment. I am very gentle and have never shown aggression to anything. I even let my foster mom's cat eat my food before I get any. She such a little cat that I know she couldn't eat so much that I would end up hungry. My best friend, Bandit, doesn't let her but Bandit just doesn't have my manners. Also, according to my vet, I am part German Shepherd so maybe I missed the Malamute cat-killer gene. While my interactions with other animals are quite good, I am afraid of most humans. I am learning to trust people more each day. I've even shared my favorite couch with little humans. They are not as scary because they are more my height.
My foster mom says I have a mild case of separation anxiety (SA). I know I don't like to be in the house alone, but as long as I can see out and I'm not alone too long inside, I am fine. I prefer to be outside when I have to be alone and sometimes I go outside just to be alone. My foster mom thinks the SA will fade away as I become more confident. Bandit is helping me see that my new life is no longer scary and she's is a great wrestler. I really like to wrestle with her. I'm still working on not letting her bite my leg, but every time I forget and let her get my leg, I get her head. It's only proper that I defend myself in these mock battles, so please don't think less of me for wrestling with a girl. Bandit is too rambunctious to be a lady, but I love her anyway.
My foster mom's house doesn't have a door bell so she relies on me. I can't help but let out two small barks when someone is at the door. It's my job after all! Once I've done that I can go hide and peek around the corner to see who's there.
I have a very fast walk. I used to be a sled dog, so I am very good at moving. However, even though I was part of a sled dog team I am not much of a puller. I think this may be why I was retired. I know heel and sit and I am normally good on a leash. However, when I get scared, I tend to shy from everything so I still need an experienced hand on the leash. I love walks and try to keep ahead of Bandit. I think I should be in the lead as I have more experience. My foster mom tried jogging with me, but we both would need more practice to do that well. I think I might like it though. I like moving faster.
I also really like car rides and going places. The only doors that don't scare me are car doors. Car doors lead to fun, fun, fun.
Bear's age is estimated at 4. He is current on all his shots and is very healthy. He is currently recovering from poor treatment, but he is improving with time and love. He has a wonderful mischievous look in his eyes every now and then that one day he will let loose and do the cutest things. He is also a bed hog. If Bear sounds like a fun dog for your family, please fill out an adoption application for him. He deserves a wonderful home that welcomes this gentle, gentle dog.
STATUS/LOCATION: Adoption Pending. In foster care, Casper, WY. Please contact Michelle - email@example.com - (307) 262-4721 for more information about Bear.
