Meet Bear! BSR 1037
Posted August 28, 2017
If you are looking for a great walking companion who will cuddle with you when you get home from a long walk, meet Bear. At approximately 8 years of age and 48 pounds, Bear is looking for a home without small children where he can be your constant companion.
Bear has great leash manners and loves his daily walks. He can sit and he is always up for a car ride or a walk at the park. His car riding manners are great. He will ride either crated or laying calmly on the back seat. When his foster family is preparing to go fishing, he enjoys laying under the boat watching the preparations. He also loves to cuddle on the couch and is very happy to see his people when they return home. His inside manners are stellar too. He does not chew on any inappropriate items.
In his previous life before coming to Boykin Spaniel Rescue, he was said to be intolerant of toddlers. His foster family have not seen this behavior, however, like all dogs, he needs strong, calm, assertive human leadership to help him understand and follow the rules of the home. A firm NO or QUIET works like a charm with Bear. He can also be a little snippy with other dogs, especially if they are too rambunctious or off-leash. He is good at the vet and at the groomer, allowing himself to be handled, lifted, groomed.
Bear has a beautiful coat that will need to be maintained with clipping a few times a year and weekly brushing. He does have a small nodule on the front of his hind leg that is not bothering him now, but may need to be removed at some point in the future.
The perfect home for Bear would be where he can be a true companion dog and the center of attention. Strong human leadership is necessary too. His new owners will need to continue his obedience training, ensure that he gets plenty of good walks and monitor him around other dogs. A home with a non-dominant, adult dog would probably be fine. He would do best in a home without small children.
Boykin Spaniel Rescue, Inc. prides itself in our dedication to evaluating the health, temperament and strengths of each dog. Sometimes dogs are with us a month or so, sometimes it is much longer. We assure you, the wait is worth it!
