bear boy - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Animal Aid and Rescue Foundation, Seahurst, WA.

We decided our Min Pin Ginger girl needed a playmate. We both work 2nd shift and she was alone 10 hours a day. We looked all over and just could not find a doggie that stood out, and then I saw a little face sticking out form under a couch, he had such a scared look in his eye and expression that moved me.

I contacted AARF they let us fill out the application and then they brought him out to our home. Bear arrived on a cold February day with the name of Georgie. we decided he looked like a little bear boy and promptly started calling him Bear. He had the worst case of diaper rash I have ever seen, his ears were all bit up, and he had no hair on his butt, legs or nose, he was very unsure of his new life.

after many trip to the vet and a new diet and a lot of love we have watched him grow into the most beautiful sweet bear boy. He loves his sister Ginger and even more he loves his new life. thank you AARF
