Lovely Bear is a handsome giant. After spending a few months in a pound in Spain, Bear was brought over here by another charity to find his forever home. Sadly the home chosen was not quite right and Bear has ended up displaced and eventually into our care. He has been here for quite a few months and sadly does get overlooked as he does need a special home that will have the patience to work to settle him into his new life he would never have experienced before.

He would benefit from an experienced owners where he can have some extended training. He’s a big bouncy lad full of energy, and will need plenty of nice walks in his new home. Bear is ok with some dogs but can react a little on the lead and doesn’t always know how to interact appropriately, as he is so strong to walk, he can pull you over if caught un-aware, so a rural area where he can roam without distraction would suit him well. He would be better to live as an only dog in a confident home who can help with his training and would suit an adult home or one with older (bigger) teens who don’t mind being knocked over with his ‘bear’ hugs..  a gorgeous boy who just needs a bit of time to settle. Please speak to our re-homing team for more information about our beautiful big bear!
