Shelter: Recycled Doggies
Pet Description: Bear and his suspected brother Moose were found about a block apart by different people. They were both severely underweight - emaciated. Their former owner was never identified so we have no back story on Moose and Bear. Best guess on breed mix is lab/Great Dane. Bear weighed just 57 pounds when we got him from the shelter but he probably should weigh 80-90. HIs bloodwork and overall health is shockingly good. He's not as tall as a great dane which is why we think he's a mix. Surprisingly, despite the horrible shape he was in when he arrived, Bear is incredibly sweet, friendly, well-mannered, housetrained, and well-behaved! He loves nothing more than to roll around on the bed and to spoon in bed! Bear is estimated to be 8 years old and is a dark brown/black color. We are still working on putting weight on Bear but our hope is that he will be ready to start meeting potential adopters at the mega-adoption event My Furry Valentine at the Sharonville Convention Center February 10-11. Our normal adoption fee is $195 but we hope to be able to have a sponsor for Bear's adoption fee so that we can offer a reduced fee to an approved adopter. If you are interested in adopting from Recycled Doggies, please complete an adoption application through our website: www.recycleddoggies.org. THAT IS THE FIRST STEP IN OUR PROCESS. Please do not just show up at an adoption event and expect to adopt a dog that day - we need time to review your application ahead of time, which is why we ask that you submit your application ahead of time so you don't miss out on the dog you are hoping to adopt while you wait for your application to be reviewed. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, dewormed, heartworm tested (if over 9 months of age), and microchipped. We do not adopt outside our area, which we define as two hours drive time from downtown Cincinnati (zip code 45202 - use Google Maps to determine if you are within our area) NO EXCEPTIONS. This is for the safety of our dogs, so that in case an adoption does not work out, we can be sure that we can quickly get our dog back. We do not have a shelter or facility - all of our dogs live in volunteer foster homes. In order to not infringe on any more of the time of our foster families, we introduce our dogs to potential adopters at our weekend adoption events posted on our website - please do not request to meet the dog outside of an adoption event as we are unable to grant the request. If you have additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
