My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Baby Bear was adopted from our rescue as a young puppy. Six years later he is brought into the Animal Emergency Center as a found injured dog. Baby Bear had a hip fracture. We had him transferred to one of our vets and owner/original adopter was never located and had not kept the address info on the microchip current. Once at the vet's office we learned Baby Bear was now heart worm positive, and had an old injury to one of his eyes. We have treated his heart worms and his fractured hip and he is now healthy. The eye does not seem to bother him, but it does drain sometimes. The vet feels he probably does not see out of that eye.

This boy is stunning! When first meeting, he growls for the first five seconds and then after that he is your best friend! He is a big guy, but that does not keep him from leaning into you completely. He also will try and fit in your lap. Baby Bear is about 6 years old and weighs about 70 pounds. He has done well with other dogs with slow introductions. He thoroughly enjoys lounging around. The couch is one of his favorite spots. He rides well in the car, and walks good on a leash. It does not take him long at all to completely bond with you. He loves for his gorgeous fur to be brushed. He still has spurts of puppy energy where he will roll over and promptly show you his belly for belly rubs. This is a friendly, happy, go with the flow kind of dog. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and microchipped.

His adoption fee is $160. If you are interested in adopting Baby Bear, please go here: . Any questions, please email us at:
