Pet of the Week: Bear who, after living outside for 8 years, is looking for lots of snuggles

After eight years of living alone outside, Bear is eager to be part of a family. He loves to snuggle, lie in the sun and play with stuffed animals.

Here’s what Bear and his friends at Puppy Paws Rescue had to say about him:

Hi! I’m Bear! I’m a 9-year-old dog with a youthful, playful personality who will win you over with my snuggle skills. If there were cuddle championships, everyone would need to watch out!

I have three favorite hobbies: my daily walks where I get to sniff all the things, my snuggle sessions (I will straight up launch myself into that couch) and, of course, dinnertime. I have a little extra heft, or “love” as my foster family calls it. I’ve been working it off, but it makes for even better snuggles. Did I mention how good I am at cuddling?

I would fit best in a house with other dogs, or by myself (as long as I have company). I am very tolerant and have no aggression. I think kids are great, I’m awesome with strangersm, and I don’t really bark — I love everyone.

I am a big dufus who can sometimes forget just how strong I am, and I would not want to knock down your little ones, so a home with adults or older kids might be best. I’ve never been around cats (but have never shown aggression toward them), and on two occasions I was frightened by a loud, small dog I saw at a distance.

If you’ve made it this far (of course you have, I’m the best), here is my backstory: I lived outside, penned up, with no family of my own for over eight years. I’ve been living with my foster family for a few months, and I’ve learned that I absolutely love stuffed animals, soft doggy beds, sunning myself and walks, but now all I want is my own family and stability.

Could Bear be the cuddle bug for your home?
