Bear is a two-year-old Akita/Shepherd mix who is ready for a new home. This tender-hearted pup has a soft spot for his friends and loves to cuddle up in the laps of people he knows. It can sometimes take Bear a little while to warm up to new people (particularly men) but he is quick to make a new buddy after a proper introduction.
In 2012, Bear was involved in a car accident that left him with a serious leg injury. Although the leg was amputated, Bear’s three strong stems are quick to take this curious little adventurer anywhere his heart desires. Since he’s always excited to discover new things, Bear would do best with an adopter who can handle some light pulling during a walk. Like most of us, Bear can get uncomfortable when he’s interrupted during a meal or chewing on a toy, but our trainers have some special tips on how you can encourage him to share. Adopt Bear today!
Bear is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting Bear, please call our Adoptions Department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120.
