Bear

 

Bear is a big, handsome, long-haired black and red male.  He is around 4-5 years old, and has lots of playful energy.  He is a big boy, probably weighing around 100 pounds.  He gets along with other non-aggressive dogs, including small dogs and puppies.  He loves people and is very communicative.  He is good with children.  Bear is housebroken.

Bear started off life as a privileged puppy, bred from show-quality lines in Germany.  Shortly after arriving in the United States, he was purchased from the breeder by someone who paid a lot of money for him.  A few short months later, Bear's owners were doing some construction on their home and they grew tired of having a puppy in the way.  They gave Bear away to someone who worked for them.

For the next 4 years, Bear spent a miserable existence in a small backyard.  He was covered with fleas and ticks.  This new owner proudly announced to us that they had only been feeding Bear every other day, and had gotten him "immune" to this treatment.  Ultimately, they turned him into the local shelter, stating that Bear no longer had a home with them.  His barking and desperate whines had become annoying.

Bear is so loyal and loving, and is desperately looking for someone to bond with.  He has already grown attached to our volunteers, so we know that he will bond very closely with his new owner.  Are you the person that Bear is looking for?

Bear is currently in a foster home.  If you wish to meet him, please send an email to robin@gsrescue.org, or call (310) 838-6694 and ask how you can arrange to meet Bear.
