About Me:

Hi I'm SheBear!

I am a young pup who still has LOTS to learn! I have been loving being at WAG, so far I have been happy to meet all the new humans, staff & volunteers. I am learning how to walk with a harness and a leash, and confidently, sometimes loud cars can scare me. I'm excited to go out for awesome adventures, I get to go to the river, smell lots and see new things.

When I get playful I can be very BOUNCY and not know my own body size. I love to cuddle and sit in your lap. My favorite thing to do is de-stuff toys! I LOVE TO PLAY.

I am hoping that my forever family will be awesome humans, lots of play, adventures, cuddles, but most importantly I need them to be patient.

I tend to get car sick on long drives, as I don't have lots of experience in the car. My forever family will have to help me work on that!

Some new things can make me a bit unsure and I need my family to be understanding that they'll need to work with me during
this big life change, hire a trainer and give me time to adjust.

My perfect match

  • Be able to commit to coming to visit me a few times at the shelter before going into my forever home
  • A family with patience
  • Understanding that a lot of things are new to me, I may need time to adjust to my new surrounding
  • Be proactive with my training, using a WAG approved trainer that will help me gain confidence and give my family the
    tools they will need when I come across something that is scary to me
  • Be ready for the 10+ year commitment
  • Keep me healthy and happy with proper exercise and yearly vet visits.

My Story:

My first family loved me, they took great care of me, but they were unable to provide the best home possible. They knew WAG would help find me a new home.

I hope it's not long before my forever family comes around.

 

If you can't adopt me, please consider donating to WAG so they can always take in pups and cats in need!

Some notes from my foster home!

Overall,  Rooster is shy and sweet, a snuggle bug and feels the most supported close by your side. He needs exercise and longer walks; about ten minutes or so before he will consider using the toilet even in the morning. He has fantastic recall and will heal at your side even if there is a distraction. He is nervous to meet big dogs but will play once you show him it's okay. He is fine at home alone if you go to the shop or to the gym without a crate (didn't leave him any longer so I don't have a better sense). He is not as food motivated as other dogs but will listen and obey for your attention. Zero bathroom accidents in the home and goes to the toilet on a regular schedule. 
I love - snuggles, following you around, smelling everything, long walks at a fast pace (running and jumping if possible), meeting new people, chewing apart toys (but luckily not shoes), and lots of belly rubs and big stretches. 
I have - a sweet heart, a mix of high energy and laziness (I love sleeping at night and the morning but mid day I want to play), I take up the entire bed and you may wake up with me pushing you off. Oh and I have a farting problem and I often crop dust my owners for fun! 
I get along with - all people and new friends on the trails but I am a little nervous with hyper, big dogs at the park. If my owner shows me it's okay, then I am not scared anymore and I jump and play. 
I would rather not - have my feet dried after I come inside nor my body. I HATE the sound of Velcro on my rain jacket and the clip sound on my harness. I do not like to wear winter booties nor my rain jacket. I would rather not take long drive, I get a bit car sick. I do not like the hiccups but I get them because I drink to fast if you give me too much.  
I need - to be close by but I am not needy for your attention. I need longer walks and exercise. I love/need a window with action or a porch (but I get cold so don't leave me out there too long), and loads of toys, loads!

I had a family that loved me lots! They were so sad to bring me into WAG, but they knew they'd find me my perfect home.

I can be quite bouncy and am a super-fast runner! I like to hold things I love in my mouth, and sometimes that is your arm or hand, but I promise I am doing it out of affection! I need someone who will put my brains and energy to work in the right direction - I would excel at activities such as agility.
I love dog parks and get very excited when I see other dogs because I just want to play with them.
