I'm looking for the ideal home for Bear. Bear is a 2 year old border collie. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and is microchipped. Bear is a beautiful boy that needs a suitable home. The ideal home would be a  home with lots of space for him to run, preferably a country home.  A home where he is welcomed and seen as part of the family not just as a yard ornament. He would do well with another dog in the home as well. He loves to have a play buddy. If the only dog I would like him to go to a person or family that would include him in their trips to the lake etc.

He is currently with a foster and is doing great. Does not bother her horses or cats. Bear is shy when he first meets you but bonds quickly when he knows he can trust you. He prefers women over men but has accepted and feels comfortable with the fosters husband and goes to him all the time for pets.

If I can say anything that bear needs some work on that would be his recall and his fear fullness to new things. Once he is comfortable with his surroundings he relaxes and is back to his happy go lucky curious self, but having a trainer to help with his recall would most definitely benefit him and his new family.

Please only border savvy people that have an ideal yard or secure property need respond. Bear has been moved around and I'm desperate to get him into a home that will love him and be there for him and take the time and money to have him trained on his recall. There will be a slow introductions with him and short visits to insure it’s a fit for both. A home check and $100 re-homing fee does apply.  Please call or text Debbie at 209-607-7464 for more info or questions.  

 Bear has been re-homed!!
