Bear will make a wonderful family dog. He is good with kids and loves to interact with family. He can live by himself but he would prefer company during the day be that another dog or people. He will thrive with a medium to large secure yard. You will need the time to give him at least one good walk a day and offer some play time at home – kids are great for that.
He will not suit homes where resident are very young, frail, elderly or time poor.
Bear is social and a fantastic dog all round. He loves performing tricks especially if there is a treat involved. Bear is a smart dog and easy to train. He is extremely loyal and well behaved. He listens and watches for your every command. Bear is also affectionate and playful.
Extremely obedient and loyal, Bear has proven to bond with new people very quickly.
Yes. Bear is playful with dogs at the park.
Great with kids, he’s definitely a people pleaser and has a lot of tricks to show off. However, we routinely recommend any kids be primary school aged or older and only if calm and gentle.
Medium - playful and energetic. He loves dog parks, playing ball and swimming especially in the sea.

Bear usually stays close by and comes when called.
Bear needs a secure yard with normal colour bond type fence at least 6 foot high. Bear will jump low fences.
Nuisance barker or destructive?
Tolerance to being alone.
Yes. If you work full time he would prefer another dog for company but he will manage alone as long as he gets plenty of attention when you are home.
Bear loves lots of human attention, playing ball and swimming. He always aims to
please and reliably carries out commands. Bear also likes food. Most of all he loves cuddles.
Bear is a well-adjusted dog with few dislikes. I guess he would hate to be ignored for long periods of time.

If you are interested in a dog we invite you to submit an application form so we can learn more about your circumstances. This is to ensure we match the right dog to the best home. (one form per family - not per dog) http://www.dogadoption.org.au/expression-of-interest.html
This is for the benefit of both the dog and the potential new owner/s. It also saves time and uses limited resources more effectively.
Once the essential criteria is confirmed we put you in touch with the carer for a more detailed chat with a view of meeting the dog/s.
If you decide to proceed with the adoption we make a time for a house check.
The adoption fee is then paid (there is a 2 week cooling off period.) Please note we do not usually allow trials.
