Bear is an adult German Shepherd/Chow mix that came to Bergen County Protect & Rescue Foundation as a stray on Christmas Eve 2012. He was tied to a tree and left for dead. If it were not for BC Protect & Rescue volunteers, he would have gone to a local high kill shelter to be euthanized. This handsome boy walks well on a leash and is housebroken. Bear loves to go for long walks, loves attention, very sweet and very gentle but however strong. He is a favorite among volunteers and would be best as an only pet as he does not like cats and gets along with some dogs. Bear is neutered, up-to-date with routine shots and house trained. Bear can be adopted at Bergen County Protect & Rescue by calling 201-945-0649 or www.BCRescues.org. The volunteer shelter is located at 302 2nd St., Cliffside Park and is opened M – Su 1 – 5 p.m. If you cannot adopt, please sponsor Bear until a loving home can be found.
