Meet Bear

Hi! I'm Bear! I'm a 9 year old dog with a youthful, playful personality who will win you over with my snuggle skills. If there were cuddle championships, everyone better watch out!
I have three favorite hobbies: my daily walks where I get to sniff all the things, my snuggle sessions (I will straight up launch myself into that couch), and of course- dinnertime. I have a little extra heft, or 'love' as my foster family calls it. I've been working it off, but it makes for even better snuggles. Did I mention how good I am at cuddling?
I would fit best in a house with other dogs, or by myself (as long as I have company). I am very tolerant and have no agression. I think kids are great, I'm awesome with strangers and I don't really bark- I love everyone.
I am a big dufus who can sometimes forget just how strong I am and I would not want to knock down your little ones, so a home with adults or older kids might be best. I've never been around cats (but have never shown aggression toward them) and on two occasions I was frightened by a loud, small dog I saw at a distance.
If you've made it this far (of course you have! I'm the best!) Here is my backstory: I lived outside, penned up, with no family of my own for over 8 years. I've been living with my foster family for a few months and I've learned that I absolutely love stuffed animals, soft doggy beds, sunning myself, and walks but now all I want is my own family and stability.
