Bear is an Australian shepherd that we rescued from St. Charles Humane Services many years ago. He was a former stray. He is the last of a long line of Aussies that have lived at Dogwood Farm Sanctuary. In fact, until recently, we have had more than one and up to four. Bear is best friends with Malala, who he loves unconditionally, and it’s a good thing, as she can be a brat. He is slow to get out of the way, a little stiff and we aren’t sure his sight is 100 percent. He is a super sweet guy and has a very kind heart.
