It’s time for the “Bear” facts…
Bear is an 8-month-old mixed breed who is sweet and playful. He’s got some energy to burn off and would be a great addition to an active lifestyle. He belonged to an older gentleman who could no longer take care of him. Bear doesn’t know what to make of the shelter and would much rather be living in a real home again.

Bear is a big and somewhat exuberant boy who would be too much for young children or your cats. But if you can give him some regular exercise and teach him the things an adolescent dog is ready to learn, he will be an awesome partner. He’s ready to love you.

He’s a nice boy who would like a bright future. If you’d like to learn more about Bear, call the shelter at 207-743-8679 or fill out our application at Meetings with dogs are by appointment with an approved application.
