Meet Bear 

Age/Weight- 7 months/estimated 50 lbs at maturity

Breed- Aussiedoodle

Training Potential: Therapy dog

Bear is a lover! He is still under a year so has some puppy goofiness and energy, but ultimately aims to please. He is confident, friendly, and is not picky about whose lap he lays in! He absolutely adores playing with other dogs and children. He also enjoys a good game of fetch, but can be a little clumsy, which we find endearing. He loves meeting new people and makes each new person feel so special with his kisses and attempts for affection (we won't tell them he does that for everyone!)

Petey is a special case as he is deaf so responds only to hand signals, but has learned everything we have asked of him because he is one smart cookie!
