Bear is a tender loving dog who is ever so sweet. He does need an experienced owner, as he will rule the house if he is allowed. He does not have a high prey drive so I tend to think he would do well with cats. He gets along with all my males and female dogs. Bear had been abandoned and tied up to shackles his whole life. He just loves to be loved on. He loves to go for rides in the car and walks well on a leash. He is a very quick learner. If you show him how to do something once he masters it right away.

Bear is currently undergoing heartworm treatment (heartworms are not directly transmissable to other dogs)

Bear was rescued from an abandoned farm in Southern KY and is now in Lake Villa, IL (near Chicago). He will be adopted only to someone local (within a few hours driving distance away).

Bear even has his own Web Page that tells his story which you can see here:
