Beary Barrington is a bear cub in Disney's Country Bear movie. He was adopted by a human family after his real family left him all alone.
Beary was found as a stray this summer and brought to the city shelter by animal control. Beary might have been abandoned purposely by previous owners, as he was never claimed. The staff noticed his huge head and happy personality and brought him to our attention. We are glad they did since the dog is proving to be a very lovable sweetheart.
Adoption Fee: $150
Breed: Pit Bull mix
Age: 1-3 yrs
Healthy and ready for adoption.
Half bear, half monkey! Beary sure is incredibly cute. He might be mix with American Bulldog. He has a huge head and adorable smoosh face. He is average size, big boned, and has a gorgeous deep red coat.
Beary did great at MPR shelter but was recently moved to a foster home. We will post updated info soon.
So much fun! What a happy, silly clown and sweetheart. This boy is very eager-to-please, a little sensitive but easy-going.
Behavior with people:
He loves people but it's possible he's had some bad experiences before. He is absolutely wonderful with people he knows well but can be standoffish with strange men (he loves women). We've seen him duck in fear when someone raised a hand near him. He is quickly learning that those days are over though and he has nothing to worry about anymore. You can tell that he is thrilled to be with friendly people and very grateful for his rescue but he needs time to warm up to strangers. We expect him to be quite protective of his loved ones so a responsible home is a must.
Behavior with children:
He hasn't been around kids since being in our program. He jumps a little when greeting people but nothing overly brutal or out of control. He's learning fast too. Because of his reaction towards strangers, we will only place Beary in a home with adults.
Behavior with other dogs:
We were told that Beary went out in play groups with other dogs during his stay at the pound. His play-style was described as "rough and rowdy" but friendly. He did like making doggy-friends, provided they could handle his enthusiasm for roughhousing. A home with a friendly, outgoing and playful female might be a good fit for this happy-go-lucky goofball. we will update his bio soon as he now fostered in a home with a female dog and in the process of introductions.
Behavior with other animals:
Little training but he is eager to please. He's currently learning basic commands and his foster dad reports no issues n the house.
Fun-loving and very sweet clown. Great personality and THE cutest monkey face. To meet him is to love him :-)
