Bear is a seven-week-old Shepherd and Labrador mix. Bear's mom is a gorgeous, healthy, gentle, fifty-five-pound, tri colored Shepherd. Bear is super healthy, well nourished, playful and very well socialized. Adoption fee includes spay/ neuter at age five months, microchip, first shots and deworming. Puppies can live upwards of twelve years. Please consider your future plans when adopting a puppy, and if you are ready for a lifetime commitment. We follow up on all dog adoptions. Apply at crisisdogsnc.org. We reply only to completed applications, no calls. Excellent vet references and a virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year-round heartworm prevention. We prefer a fenced yard, but this is not required for all of our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible.
