Bear - An Easygoing Dog
who Just Graduated from Obedience Class
Susan Daffron talks to Samantha Westbrook from the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter about an American Staffordshire Terrier named Bear. This dog came in as a stray and has been at the shelter since August. He's a pretty boy with a brindle coat and a happy-go-lucky smile. Even though he's been at the shelter for a while, he hasn't lost one bit of his good humor and gets along great with other dogs and people. Bear also just graduated on November 21 from obedience class.
The West LA Animal Shelter works with the k9 Connection program, which pairs at-risk teens with dogs that are available for adoption. The kids train homeless shelter dogs in basic obedience and help the dogs develop the skills to become more adoptable You can even see Bear's graduation photo on the Program Participant page -- check out "Bear 2" at the top of the (he's Bear 2, since another dog named Bear was in the program). Now that Bear has completed his training, he's more than ready for the next phase of his life to begin. If you're looking for a sweet, loving dog that's already had basic obedience training, check out Bear.
