MALE IN A NUTSHELL: Just getting to know him.
We were first notified about Bear by our Facebook angel, Kathy J. We were SO full, having just taken in Noah and Blitz the day before, and we had said "NO MORE" after their intake, but once we watched this video, we were hooked. Can you blame us?

The shelter information told us, "Poor Bear got dumped at Devore after his family moved to a place that said no to furkids. He's sharing a kennel with a dog he did not come with & they seem to be doing wonderfully together so we can assume he is good with others at least his size! ... I am a male, white Shepherd. The shelter staff think I am about 1 year and 1 month old."

UPDATE 8/29: Our thanks goes out, once again, to our dear friends at Husky Camp, who dropped what they were doing and ran down to retrieve this boy so that he wouldn't have to spend another night in hell.


Bear is going to spend some time at Husky Camp until we have a foster opening for him here in Phoenix. In the meantime, we'll be looking forward to updates on how he's doing.

UPDATE 9/13: Bear, River, Frankie and Torrey go for a romp in the yard at Husky Camp!

UPDATE 9/22: Funtime at Husky Camp!
