This lovely young lad is Bear who is just a year old. We were called by the vets who had been asked to get rid of him by a lady who said she had rescued him a few months before but couldn’t cope with all her kids and the dog. Nice!
Bear is neutered (surprisingly) and microchipped, and vaccinations are being restarted as unknown if done. We were told he is a GSD cross Staffie?!
This is what the kennels have to say about him:
“Few snaps of a dear, dear boy, scared of his own shadow just now, touch him and he hits the floor. Jesus he has had some beatings in his tiny life, brooms, mops, and bloody hands have hurt him, but my God he just so wants to please. When we get hold he starts to relax, slowly smoothing, doesn’t like back end or head touched much yet, unfortunately for him though he is here, so consistency is beginning to work. Today he presented Chris with a toy at his feet, first time he has even considered picking one up, so huge step forward. Started eating properly today as well. He follows us very close to heel all the time. Won’t at present venture too far, but that will come.”
Bear needs a calm and confident home to help him blossom please and would probably benefit from another dog around to help him and also to play with.
Bear is staying with his foster family.
