Meet BearBear & Biscuity!
Biscuit is a sweet, mellow 9 year old who is friendly to everyone he meets. Although lying down and sunny himself is his favorite thing to do, he still loves to play with his brother.
Since coming to his foster, Biscuit’s energy level has improved and he is more active now compare to the first several weeks. While he was content to watch his brother and his foster fur sibling play he now joins in more frenquently. He absolutely LOVES car ride. He will run to the car and wait for me to open the door for him. He still needs some help getting his backside up, but he is now trying to lift his rear legs into the car on his own. Maybe a stool will help.
He likes to go out, whether it’s for a car ride or an evening walk in the neighborhood. He enjoys his walks, he doesn’t have any mobility issues, is very well behaved and has good leash manners. Biscuit is fine with other dogs, as long as they don’t get in his face and bother him and if they do, he will give them a warning. The warning is not an aggressive kind, but just to let other dogs know that he is not interested in getting to know them. He is currently living with a Foster sister and has not shown any aggression towards her.
His house manners are really great. He doesn’t chew on anything that doesn’t belong to him, he has shown no separation anxiety and he doesn’t counter surf. (See Update below on Bear’s & Biscuit”s new game) Ha He does needs work on taking treats from your hand because he loves to eat and get very excited. Because of this, we feel he would do better in a house with no small children.
Bear – German Shepherd
Bear has the typical majestic look of a German Shepherd, the most beautiful brown eyes, a soft heart and a gentle way about him. He may look dominant, but he is submissive to people and will lay down and show you his belly for belly rubs when he sees you! He loves to be around people and get as much love and petting as he can get. He is a playful, tail wagging, ball chasing goofball. Always doing something to get a smile on your face.
He is a very playful 3 year old still in that puppy stage where he wants to get every dogs he meet to play. He just isn’t very good at introducing himself sometimes. After the initial smelling each other, Bear will use his hand (paw) to pat the other dog. It’s his funny way of telling them, “Ok I want to play.” On walks, Bear tends to get anxious if he sees a dog approaching him and his foster. After talking and having our behaviorist (Alex Macias) look at his reaction, she has suggest to re-direct his attention when this happens. His foster has been working on that and he is doing quite well.
He LOVES to play fetch, or should I say catch because he catches the toy in mid air most of the time! He walks great on the leash IF there is no distraction. He is attracted by flying objects and will try to go after them. The other day, he tried to catch a flying beetle! Ha (The goofball attitude)
Bear has excelent house manners and will let you know when he has to go outside. He doesn’t chew up things that do not belong to him or counter surf and is a total lovebug. He loves car rides and most of all he loves to cuddle and get his belly rubbed.
Biscuits & Bear
Bear is very much attached to Biscuit and will look for him when he is out of his sight. The relationship they have is like a little brother looking up to his big brother with total trust and love for him. When Bear was neutered at the selter, he was placed in a kennel by himself. He would not drink or eat and cried, so they moved him back with his big brother and Bear instantly stopped crying and started to drink and eat. Bear is very much attached to Biscuit and we would never think of separating them.
They are both fine in a crate and they will go in there for a nap often during the day with the door open. They sleep well thru the night and have a happy smile and wagging tails waiting for you in the morning. They rarely bark, Biscuits normally can care less about his environment, but if Bear starts barking or chasing something, then Biscuit will ‘support’ him.
We took them out to stores and a dog friendly cafe and they were totally at ease with it all. They were well behaved and stayed calm and loved watching all the different people they encountered. There was a big group of parents and little kids in the outdoor cafe and neither Bear or Biscuit showed any interest in approaching them or seemed uncomfortable with the situation. On two separate occasions, a little girl came to pet them, after asking if it was ok, and Bear and Biscuit just stood there and really looked like they were enjoying the attention and petting.
Update on House Manners: Recently, Biscuit and Bear have been playing a new game – Treasure Hunt!! Not sure who came up with the idea. They started to dragged out the trash and counter surf in kitchen. (I was a little worry Biscuit’s weight might have bad effect on his join. But apparently he is fine because he has no problem standing up to surf the counter!!~~ I guess that’s the positive way to look at it! HA!) After the first incident, I replaced the trash can to a lockable one and leave no food on the counter. Then, funny thing happened, they went after the empty plastic bags next to the trash can—! (Maybe they always see us put trash into plastic bags so assuming plastic bag=food??? ) They did swipe napkins a couple times and took two sandwiches from table when they first came into foster, but never touch the trash can or go this big…….
Both Biscuit and Bear love going to the beach and do not hesitate to get into the water and have fun. Bear has a great time running into the ocean and retrieving the ball and bringing it back so you can throw it again. Biscuit also loves runing into the water, but he is good for a couple runs and then would rather hang out in the sand and say hi to everyone.
If you feel that you could give these two gentle souls a wonderful home and would like to make them a big part of your family then please contact their Rep at email@example.com
