Meet Sugar Bear

Sugar Bear was surrendered to the shelter because he became too big for his owners. He is 18 months old and weighs 86 pounds. This very handsome boy is looking for a German Shepherd experienced home. He is in need of training and confidence building. Sugar Bear is working on his leash manners with his foster mom. He needs to work on basic obedience with distractions.

Sugar Bear tends to be nervous and skittish with new people and can be reactive. He would do best in a calm, structured environment. A home with lots of children and visitors is not for him. Sugar Bear is being fostered with a female GSD and lived previously with another dog. He tends to be reactive to new dogs but eventfully settles down. His foster mom says he can be a bit of an attention hog so this would need to be managed if he was placed with another dog. He has not lived with cats, however has done well meeting small dogs, so he could potentially be placed with a dog savvy cat.

Sugar Bear is an active boy and loves to swim. He is very much a Velcro dog that loves to be with his people. Being a young boy he can be mouthy which his foster mom is working on. He also will counter surf if given the opportunity, so we would recommend he be crated when not supervised.

Sugar Bear is a sweet, beautiful boy that will thrive in an experienced home that can commit to training and socialization for him.

Adoption fee includes: spay or neuter, vaccines, heart worm testing, fecal test and microchip.
