Not sure why Bear was not claimed by his owner. He was picked up as a stray and we are glad we were able to rescue him. He is a sweet natured dog who gets along well with other dogs. Though he needs some obedience training, we think that is not hard to do. He is definitely crate trained, loves to play but is not too fond of his crate. If you would like to meet Bear, please contact Rosemarie at 973-865-6421 and to see our other dogs awaiting adoption please check out www.op.petfinder.com.
