Hi, my name is Bear and I am a happy, playful 3 year old white greyhound.
I live with my foster mum and my two human brothers, they’re 9 & 4. I love kids, I often try and sleep on the bed with the kids, and I don’t mind sharing the couch with them either. I love hugs and I love attention, so if you want to pat or cuddle me when I’m asleep, I won’t mind.
I love to go for walks, but I don’t like them to be too long, or when it’s too warm. I walk about 3km every day, but some days I just want to cut it short and go back to sleeping. If I miss a walk I will just run around the yard for about 5 minutes, morning and afternoon and then sleep the rest of the day.
I don’t really like being on my own very much, so I would love to have another dog for company, or to stay with you, if you stay home.
I understand “no” and I will go to bed when told. My foster mum won’t let me onto her bed, which I don’t think is fair, but I am just happy to sleep in her room. I also love the couch.
I am super clever. I can even open some doors. Bench surfing is one of my favourite things to do and I love to collect treasure, I also love to lay down on the floor in the kitchen when mum is preparing food so she remembers that I am there and waiting for any food she may want me to taste test, I will eat anything put in front of me.
I get really cold in winter, but I love to cuddle under blankets or to wear my jumpers or onesies. I have a collection that will come with me. Sometimes I forget that I’m not human, and will try to put myself to bed in the people beds. But I get off happily if you don’t want me there.
Unfortunately I don’t like cats, if I see any when I am out walking I won’t try to run after them but my ears will perk up and I’ll watch them veeeeery carefully.
I really like going in the car and usually sleep on the back seat, the beach is one of my favourite places to go. I love the water, and I love swimming, but I forget that I can swim sometimes, so I have to go pretty deep and then I love it!
