Bear is a beautiful black “wadi” dog who has recently joined us all the way from the middle east, in the hopes that we can find him his perfect home. He is an athletic built boy with Saluki heritage, albeit diluted over the generations, we estimate him to be around 20kg and of medium height. He has been neutered and is of course fully vaccinated and health checked.
Bear was born in December 2019 which makes him a little over 1 years old and has already had an eventful life.
He was born to a stray mother, one of 6 puppies who were rescued when they were 6 weeks old, just in the nick of time, sadly their mother wasn’t so lucky.
The other puppies found permanent new homes but Bear ended up in a foster home, where he formed a close bond with his foster mum, but it was only ever going to be a temporary arrangement.
He has had some formal training and has some nice manners, but like many young dogs his age, he can also be rambunctious, strong willed and stubborn. We think he would benefit from further training to keep him stimulated and occupied and he will also need a good amount of exercise.
Bear enjoys being around other cats & dogs but can be a little dominant around them, he can also be reactive to some cars or bikes and finally he can be a bit mouthy when he thinks he’s being ignored, all these things are very fixable and for this reason we are looking for an experienced owner who knows how to be a good “pack leader”.
So to summarise
Bear needs plenty of simulation and exercise, he would be great for a family or person who loves the great outdoors.
He needs a home where someone is home for a good portion of the day.
He would benefit from further training and/or doggie sports
He could share with another dog who matches him for size and energy levels, but probably not cats or smaller dogs.
He could live with a family who has older children
Bear loves his toys and will need a plentiful supply please!
