Bear is an America Bulldog who is around 5 years old. Sadly, Bear was found wandering the streets in a sorry state and was subsequently taken to the pound. He had a number of horrible injuries suggesting he’d been beaten. Bear was a sad boy and really wasn’t in great condition, with a number of health issues that required urgent treatment including a very nasty ear infection.
That was back in February and he’s now fighting fit and full of beans thanks to the love and care of his kind foster family. He is now looking for a forever home.
Katie his foster mum says:
“Bear is a really resilient boy, who has dealt with a lot of change. He’s a quick learner & has lots of potential when it comes to training – he will need continued training to help him feel settled & secure.
In the house he is clean & dry – no issues; he will bark or stare to let you know he needs to go out. He settles quietly when he’s left home alone.
He is food obsessed, though not food aggressive which makes training easier! He loves getting his head in the fridge & now he is stronger he can reach the kitchen counter to snaffle things.
Bear has been getting along fine with our dog although she does know how to push his buttons! He’d be fine living with another dog if it was the right personality match. Although, definitely can’t live with cats.
He thoroughly enjoys his walks and has good recall but with being such a big guy, he’s quite strong on his lead.
He’s just a big, daft clumsy boy really. Wonderfully affectionate but unfortunately he doesn’t realise just how big he is. Because of this he shouldn’t be rehomed with younger children.
He’s a lovely lad with an awful lot of love to give”.
Bear would be best in a home experienced with large, bull breeds and with people prepared to out in the time and patience to help him settle.
