PApa Bear, one of our adorable chocolate labs, needs a new place to call home and a new, loving family to take care of him while he completes his training to be a diabetic alert dog. He has already finished his foundational search training, and in 4-6 months he will be ready to keep his future owner safe and healthy by alerting him or her immediately when their blood sugar is outside the normal range.

He’s an easygoing guy who loves people, cuddling, and playing fetch. He has gotten over his puppy antics of chewing, gets along well with other dogs, and tolerates cats. Bear’s new foster family needs to be able to get him to and from “school” on time (drop off 7-9am, pick up 5-7pm).
