  • Care Bear


Picture 1 of 6

4 year old Care Bear was surrendered to Chicago Animal Control due to a family members allergies. Care Bear is a very sweet, well-mannered lady! And she truly cares. While she is also a good snuggle bear and very affectionate, she does not jump up on furniture without an invitation. She has been learning how to enjoy chewing on no-hides and greenies, and shows interest in toys but isn't quite sure what to do with them yet. She's a smart bear though! She already knows "sit" and "kennel up," and is quickly learning "down," "touch," and "wait." She's also a very loyal bear. She's a bit slow to warm up to new people at first, but go at her pace, and you will be her best friend for life! She has good taste and is also easily won over with high-quality snacks, like chicken or hot dogs, and long walks in the park. Walks are her favorite! She's good on leash as well unless those pesky squirrels are out; she's always up for a good squirrel chase! She does have some anxiety when she's away from her people. She can kennel-up nicely for a few hours, but someone who is home often, at least initially while she adjusts to her new home, may be best. Care Bear is good with other dogs and cats! She lived previously with children ages 4, 6, 9, and 12.
