Bear is incredibly beautiful, two year old, but that isn't even the best thing about him. He is so gentle and calm, it was such a pleasure to see this gentle guys personality emerge. In the shelter he has been so despondent, he felt so depressed he couldn't even look at anyone. We got a dreaded call from the shelter that Bear was on the list that day to be euthanized. One of our wonderful volunteers drove hours to pick up Bear and take him to one of the veterinary offices where we board our dogs. Only the farthest one still had room. When the volunteer walked into the crowded veterinary office with Bear, still unnamed at that point, some children surrounded him and insisted that a good name for him would be "Bear." The first time we saw Bear respond was to a little girl, his tail started to wag. He seemed proud to be standing next to her. When one of the volunteers took Bear out for his pictures, he walked attached to her side, if she stopped Bear stopped, if she took a step, he took a step. We call dogs like this Velcro dogs. Bear wants so badly to have a family to love and to cherish him. We gave Bear lots of kisses and love before we had to put him back in boarding, but you can see from the pictures he was getting his spirit back. Bear was a perfect gentleman in the vet office with other animals of all sizes. We are in love!
