Meet Bear! This sweet boy found GPMR when his owners moved and weren't able to bring Bear with them and so he was left outside in a pen. A neighbor was trying to take care of Bear and find him a home. Unfortunately he was in pretty rough shape when he arrived, only weighing about 97 lbs. He had no muscle left either which is an indication of starvation. Thankfully he's bouncing back quickly and is already up to 122 lbs at his last vet check and still has at least another 10 lbs to go.
Bear is somewhere between 3 to 4 years old. He is a very affectionate boy! He is fostered with another male Mastiff and doing great. He’s done really well around other dogs and he has no issues with the cat in his foster home. He is great at alerting when people come to the house! He does bark at new people coming into the home and once he sniffs and knows they are OK, he doesn't bark anymore. So something to consider if you have a lot of visitors. He is learning to walk on a leash but still pulls a lot. He knows his puppy drills and will do anything for a treat!
When we got Bear he had some scabs on his body and the vet was not sure if these are from fleas or allergies. We started him on medications and these are all healed up now and he has not had to stay on meds. Thankfully he tested negative for heartworms! Bear didn't have much strength in his back end when he arrived to us, but this has improved a lot. We had X-rays taken to be sure and the Vet said everything looked normal. They think he was just suffering from neglect when we first got him, and doesn't have anything wrong with his hips. As a precaution we started him on joint supplements.
Bear is part of our Fall in Love adoption event and his fee is waived!
Bear is being fostered in Fort Smith, AR
