shy puppy adoption


Bear is a very shy puppy and would need someone who is patient with him. Once he comes out of his shell he’s a very bubbly pup he loves to sleep and follow you around. 

Bear loves cuddles and pats and belly rubs and is unsure on toys but is curious of them. Bear knows simple commands like sit come and down and is very willing to learn more. 

Bear would be suited on his own or with another small dog. Bear has been around cats is curious but there is been no aggression towards them only wants to be friends with them and he loves children.

We need to be mindful of who Bear goes to due to his shy and timid temperament. His new people will need to be patient and gradually socialise him so he gains confidence while feeling safe.

To submit an expression of interest for Bear please email Lorraine on

Best outcomes: For the best possible outcome for each adoption we do prefer that you come to us and meet the dog or puppy in person.
Please note: Even though you may be first to call, this does not always guarantee you will be chosen to adopt. By no means do we run on a “first in, first served basis”. We aim to ensure that our animals are adopted into the most suitable home for them and the new family.
