Bear [ADOPTED MAY 3] came to us from a shelter after being picked up as a stray. His hair was so long we couldn't see his face and when lying down couldn't tell one end from the other. Unfortunatley, Bear was a pretty sick guy ending up with pneumonia and whipworm. He is fine now and after his haircut has turned into a really handsome guy. Once his coat grows out a bit, he will look even better. Bear is estimated to be 5 or 6 years old and is a very sweet guy. He is housetrained and sleeps in his crate at night. Bear is very attached to his foster dad but gets along well with dogs, cats and the neighborhood kids. Bear's only ongoing health concern is that he is hypothyroid and will need daily medication but the pills are very inexpensive. This is probably also why he is a bit overweight but diet, medication and exercise will take care of that.
