Bear, 6, is a male border collie/chow mix who came as a surrender due to his owner’s landlord not allowing dogs. He weighs 69 pounds. He is likely is house-trained and walks nicely on a leash. He knows some commands and is interested in treats. He is active and energetic, and likes to chase after a ball. He is a happy, fun boy and loves to get brushed. He’s a volunteer favorite, loves the water and on hot days he lies down in a water tub. Bear will need to go to a home without cats or other small animals, and any children should be older than ages 10-12. Bear is choosy about his doggy companions, but once he finds a dog he clicks with, playtime is on. A meet and greet with any other dogs in the house is required before adoption.
