Bear is one of the dogs we had a few months back that was highly reactive to some dogs. Scrappy even spent some time hanging out together in a yard just to show Bear that he didn’t need to be afraid of other dogs. Bear was used for back yard breeding so he missed out on so much of what makes a dog a dog. He was a very affectionate boy with us but certainly not overly needy. Strangely, one of the things his previous owner didn’t like about him is that he wanted too much attention. Yeah. I’ll only say that it was a most excellent event when they decided to bring Bear to us.
What prompted me to write about Bear is that we recently received a detailed update from Bear’s new Dad with the entire scoop on how well he is doing and how far he has come in a relatively short time. We often never know how many of our dogs are faring in their new lives. So it’s very gratifying to find out that a dog like Bear is making up for lost time.
