Dogs - Available » Bear
Bear is seeking an experienced owner. You know how the baby in the family acts bad and then they get away with it because they are so cute? That's Bear. Bear is a 1.5 year old (ish) pittie mix. He came from an owner who ended up homeless and Bear has not had much structure or stability in his life. He was under weight when he was surrendered and even in the first week, he looked so much healthier! He is a fun loving, energetic sweetheart... who occasionally likes to cause mischief. What teenager doesn't? Bear is smart and very food motivated. He is very trainable but struggles with overstimulation. He's a bit of a wild child right now and loves to play hard, but once he is worn out, he is a big snuggle baby. Bear will grow into a wonderful companion if he is given lots of fun, discipline and love! (Eventually they grow to mellow out a bit). Bear will push all your buttons and wear down your patience and then he will look at you with those precious eyes... those perfectly cute ears... and tilt his head... and you will forget why you were even frustrated. Bear is ready to learn all the tricks and commands. If you are seeking a puppy heart without the potty training for a lot of fun, Bear is your boy! If you have experience with stubborn bullies or dogs requiring a little extra structure, please apply! Bear needs a lot of time investment but we can guarantee that he is 100% worth it. Bear needs a fenced-in yard to burn some energy. Complimentary training at Central Kennels is included with his adoption. Bear is more than ready to have his day with you, so if you're willing to open up your heart and home to him, please fill out an application.
Special Notes: Complimentary training at Central Kennels is included with Bear's adoption. Bear's adoption fee is sponsored by Pet Supplies Plus on Airport Highway in Toledo. Thank you to our sponsors!
