Meet Mellow

This big guy (115 pounds) loves to play! Mel was left at a NJ shelter after his owner was moving. Mel will need a breed experienced owner, one that also has the physical strength to handle a big bouncy juvenile male. Mel knows some basic commands and is food motivated. Mel has been fully vetted and would do best in a large securely fenced in back yard where he can get plenty of exercise. While living at BEAR, Mel has made friends with two of our females! He is playful with both females however he will not tolerate a male dog in his space. It is best that he not be placed with small animals or small children, as he is big and bouncy and could knock over a small child or an older person. This is a big strong boy who clearly has no idea of his size and strength.

Do you think you have what it takes to give this big happy guy a safe home? Please go to and fill out an online adoption application for Mel-Man!
