My story

Gage comes to BEAR out of Memphis, TN. Sadly, Gage sustained a gunshot wound to his back at close range. Despite what he has lived through, this boy still loves people and gives tail wags. Gage has been released from the hospital in TN, he is now here in NJ. Gage is a very friendly , very active fellow who would do best in a home with a secured fenced in yard so he can run and play. Gage was a stray so we do not know who did this or what happened. Gage is very food motivated so training is coming along well with this happy guy.

Interested in Gage? Please go to our website and out in an online adoption application. Applicants should have breed knowledge.
