Our big friendly giant needs a home!
Aged a mere 10 months old, Dogs Trust Snetterton is currently caring for a huge Akita puppy called Bear, who is seeking his forever home. Weighing in at an incredible 40.3kg – Bear is around the average weight of a two year old grizzly bear!
Handsome Bear has been described by the centre as a big friendly giant who has the personality of a mischievous pup within the body of a gigantic dog. The centre’s canine carers have their hands full with this cheeky chap who is big in character – and just as big in size.
Dogs Trust Snetterton’s Rehoming Centre Manager Diane McLelland-Taylor said:
“Bear is a lively and playful boy who loves a gentle fuss but also needs his own space – he will certainly keep his new owners on their toes! Do not be fooled by his appearance, as he is the soppiest puppy in an oversized body! This loving lad is so young and deserves to make a start on living his life in a loving home – we hope it’s really soon.”
Big Bear will need an energetic home with patient and understanding owners who have no other pets and will ideally have previous experience with Akitas, he can also live with children over the age of 14. Due to his size he will need access to a good sized garden and a peaceful home life would suit him best.
Bear is a clever pup and enjoys learning new things, and already knows some basic commands, he has so much potential to learn more through further positive reward-based training.
