    Bear has found a new home with Jim from Kalamazoo. Jim has experience with shepherds( he has owned four-one with issues similar to Bear) lives alone and has no other pets. I think he and Bear will be a great fit. Thank you Mr. Burkey for all your help. One of the reasons we gave Bear to Jim is because when they met, he reacted to him similarly to how he reacted with you which was WAY better then how he reacted to anyone else. It was so hard to say goodbye but I know he will be loved and cared for properly in his new home.

    • Jennie, I am so happy to hear that. Bear is a wonderful dog, just has some special challenges. You gave him lots of love and training that he would not have gotten with someone else and you found him the right home environment as well despite it being a tough decision for you. That’s a lot of unconditional love you showed him! Hugs.
