Bear is a handsome 75 pound husky mix who is about 14 years of age.  He’s an older fellow that does not act his age. He is joyful, loves going for walks, enjoys the company of other dogs and especially enjoys the company of humans.

When he came to rescue Bear had lost his owner. He had been locked in a dark garage without food or water or even a piece of blanket. Bear suffered emotionally from all of this more than he did physically. Initially he was just in shock; he would not eat or drink, would not engage or respond, and struggled to walk and pretty much didn’t want to move.

Once Bear was vetted and given the care he needed, he began to return to reality. His foster family saw what a loving and affectionate dog he really is. Bear loves his foster home and really enjoys his morning trips to Marymoor Dog Park.

Adopting Bear will give someone a chance to truly give of themselves and offer an older dog his last years with love, security, and stability. The longer Bear’s foster parents have him the more funny and endearing little qualities reveal themselves. He sounds like a wonderful dog with so much to offer!

Bear is posted for Rebecca’s Rainbow. He is being fostered in Kirkland WA. For more information about Bear and adopting him please email:
