Bear (1235) came to live with us on Sept. 28, 2009, when he was three (3) years old. He immediately took to his two feline siblings, introducing himself face to face upon arrival. He kept us busy running after him as he liked to grab household items and then run away with them, and then only release them for a treat. As Bear settled in we saw his wonderful, quirky personality: he was a happy, fun loving dog and his gentle nature proved that he was ideal for being a therapy dog. His favourite hobbies include: swimming, long walks, playing with his buddies at doggy day care, visiting his “clients” at a local Nursing Home, and, on occasion, stealing cat food. We love our Bear and are very happy that we adopted him and can’t imagine life without him.
