Adopt Poo Bear

My name is Poo-Bear!!!  And even though I was not named for the lovable bear of children's literature, I am just as cute and adorable!!!

I am a good natured boy with a zest for life!!!  I love, love, love toys, and playing with other dogs.  

I have been told I may have a little Mastiff roaming around inside me which makes me even more fun to hang around.

I am currently working on my manners (and doing a fine job of that) and walking nicely on a leash.

Please visit me as soon as you can.
