More about Bear 10873:
- Color: Brown/White
- Pattern: None
Bear is a 17-lb. beauty who was rescued from a hoarding situation. As a result he is timid when first meeting people, but warms up in time. If you are patient enough to earn Bear's trust, you will be greatly rewarded! His foster family can't say enough great and positive things about Bear. We do think that with his history he should be in a home without any children. Although he may have had a rough start, he is basking in all the good things in life. He loves treats (but won't always take them from a hand). He LOVES toys and loves a soft bed or spot on the couch. He is quickly adjusting to the ways of his foster house and is getting along great with the resident dogs. He loves to play! Bear hasn't had a single accident in the house, although he gets let out quite often. Bear is not a fan of the crate and can be left out for short periods, but make sure to pick up your shoes! At night he is sleeping in his big "playpen for dogs, and has no problem sleeping through the night with a soft bed and blanket (but if you're inclined, he'd probably love to be snuggled up to his human in bed). Bear is a little unsure of the young foster daughter and husband, but treats seem to be helpful in getting him to adjust to and trust new people. Bear has heartworm disease and Furkids is providing him with life saving treatments. Until he has completed his treatments and is fully recovered, he is available for adoption only in the Atlanta area; he must be able to come to Furkids' shelter for treatments. Bear is 4 yrs. old (est. birth date 1/31/2017) and his adoption fee is $305. If you want more information about Bear, please submit a survey at https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/FKDS/Dog. At this time, meeting our dogs is by appointment only. After submitting a survey, an adoption counselor will contact you to give you more information about the dog you are interested in adopting and to arrange for you to meet the dog. Must be at least 21 years of age to adopt.
