Giant teddy bear, coming through! My name is Grizzly Bear, but don't let my name fool you because I am one big softie who loves snuggling and pets more than anything - even though I am more than 100 pounds, I still consider myself a lapdog! I would appreciate a patient family who will give me time to settle in and feel safe; I can be shy at first with new people, but once I know you I love you for life. I get along great with other doggies and would do best in a home with no cats and with older children (13+) given my large size and initial shyness. I am generally pretty calm but I do get bursts of playful puppy energy and would enjoy having a yard with a tall privacy fence to get my zoomies out. My ideal forever family will have some experience with large bully breeds like me, and will be dedicated to signing me up for training classes so I can work on my confidence and keep learning commands. I listen well and already know "sit." I am also crate and potty trained, though I might do some marking at first while I get used to my new home so I would also appreciate some patience as I learn our new routine. I am looking forward to lots of snuggles and generous pets, so I hope you fill out an adoption application!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
