  Bear, 5 months Male Australian Shepherd / English Shepherd  Mix

Bear is an English Shepherd / Australian Shepherd mix who is as smart as they come. He would make a great service dog as he figured out on his own how to open his kennel door by pushing the latch up with his nose. No other dog has ever done that here. It is amazing. We feel he needs a home where he will be trained with positive reinforcement so that he can show off his smarts to the public and people can learn that shelter dogs are not throw-aways, but are living, breathing, loving, intelligent individuals who deserve to live out their days as companion animals. He is fine in the car, good on leash, playful and very good natured. He is a slow eater and should be fed by himself. He eats a little, walks off, comes back for more, walks off, etc. He eats enough ....just in his own time! Our process is that you fill out the application first, then in one or two days we will contact you if your application is a match. Please read our guidelines under Apply to Adopt as some dogs require a stay-at-home and some dogs require a fenced in yard. Phone calls are discouraged as it takes time away from the care of the dogs to answer questions that might already be on our web site. We tend to put down everything we know. If information is missing, it's usually because we don't know. :-) He will be neutered on Friday 5/22/09 so will not be at Friday's hours, but will be available to be seen on Sat, or before Friday by private appointment once we receive your application.
