Could You Love Bear?

Big Bear

Look Into My Eyes... 


Big bear needs a new home. Bear joined us at The Rehabilitation Centre about 7 weeks ago for human and dog reactivity. He's an imported American Johnson and is doing brilliantly with his fear reactive work with dogs and people. His family cannot have him back and so we are on the search for a special sofa for this beautiful boy. If bear is asked to take on the world on his own he simply can't and he will react negatively so he needs a protective, leading handler that will help him feel safe and protected and take on the world for him with bear taking the role of wing man. He's a big squidgey boy that loves fuss and cuddles and will be your best buddy but he just needs reassurance that the world is all OK and you will keep him safe. 

He needs to be pet and child free and we would ideally like him re-homed close to us so we are looking at Somerset, Dorset or Devon. His rehabilitation will be ongoing and his new owner will receive full and unstinting support from the sanctuary.

Taking on a dog like Bear can be massively rewarding and given the right fit he will be a wonderful fast friend who will do anything to please you.

If you fit the criteria of what he needs and are interested in taking the next steps with Bear please do get in touch via the contact form below.
