Bear [Adopted 7/16/2011] is a handsome, chocolate 2 year old male who was picked up as a stray. Bear is totally housetrained and crate trained. He loves to play ball and will bring the ball back but is reluctant to give it up. We are working with him on dropping the ball so he can enjoy chasing it again. Bear is energetic and very curious especially with bags that are left on the floor. He will stick his nose into them and pull out whatever "goodies" he can find. He gets along well with everyone he meets and does well with other dogs. He is not a lap dog, but likes to be near his people. Bear needs to gain some weight as he came in quite thin and was very matted. He had to be shaved down but when his hair grows back in he will be even more handsome. He is a very special boy.
