March 23, 2015 Update:
Bear is doing well and finally feeling more relaxed in his foster home. His foster home has really been working with him on learning to play, and his confidence. Bear's favorite time of the day is when he can lay with the kids and get lots of petting. Bear is still one of the most awesome dogs his foster home has had. He would really be awesome with an older couple or a family with kids.
March 9, 2015 Update:
Bear is no longer a beach dog... six days and no surfing! He has gotten into the bad habit of eating shoes though, so his foster home will have a whole new issue to work on going forward.
Bear is much more interested in cuddling and getting belly rubs than he is in playing with the other dogs in his foster home. He does not even try to play alone. He may only be 3 years old but he acts like he is 10.
Bear continues to work on his basic obedience and would benefit from an owner who is willing to continue this work with him.
February 23, 2015 Update:
Bear has been coming into his own lately. He has continued to counter surf, which his foster home is working on, and he likes to stand up to reach or get over things on his front paws. He has relaxed a lot but still has a long way to go. He still does not know his boundaries and gets himself in trouble by taking things the others dogs have in their kennels. Bear is starting to make friendships with the other dogs in his foster home but he is still guarded with them. He can be a little slow to open up and trust but we believe once he does he will be awesome.
February 7, 2015 Update:
Bear arrived late morning on February 7th and is a really laid back Rottweiler. He has no aggression of any kind, and loves kids once he is done checking out his new digs. Bear was likely kept outside or in the basement a lot, and may have been abused so his foster home is taking things slow with him and will be working on him gaining trust.
Bear will be enjoying some good 'ole pampering once he completely heals from his neuter surgery. In the meantime he will have to settle for some treats and whatever he can grab from counter surfing (which his foster home will also be working on). So far he is not destructive in the house at all, and does fine without being crated.
Bear would not do well in a home with cats or other small animals like ferrets.
