Meet Bear

Bear is a striking 1.5-year-old, 29-pound black tri male mini-Aussie. Bear is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. He came to our rescue via owner surrender through no fault of his own.

Bear enjoys being with his foster dog siblings so a home with another dog would be a plus, but not a necessity. He likes toys, activities, and something to chew on. He knows basic commands of sit, down, and come (he is a very smart dog who listens well therefore should have no problem learning new commands), is crate trained and enjoys rides in the car. On the leash, he does not pull but will need a little more work. He has not been cat tested, nor do we know if he likes to play or swim in the water at this time. Bear really loves his people and wants to be with them at all times, therefore, a home where someone is home most of the day is ideal.

Bear is a young, active boy who will need plenty of exercise so a fenced yard where he can run and play would be ideal. Like any Aussie, Bear requires a significant amount of mental and physical exercise and a 20-minute walk around the block will not work for Bear. Bear does have a nice off switch and loves to snuggle with his people. He will make someone a wonderful, lovable friend!
