Bear is a cute blonde boy from the Riverside shelter. He is friendly with people and other dogs, big and small. He has a pretty high prey drive so a cat might be a little too interesting for him. Bear can easily get under your skin with his affectionate nature and “lap dog” mentality but still needs structure, leadership and training in his new home. He would enjoy having a big dog playmate to help him burn off his energy.

If you are interested in meeting this dog, please fill out our online application first.  Contact us via email at  The minimum adoption donation ranges from $300 to $400. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
