    All of my rescues picked me. I went to the shelter and they sought me out. I know, it sounds weird, but that's how I knew. My recent cat, Khoshekh, was literally pawing at his container, wailing at me. Volunteer unlocked his crate and he immediately went right into my arms and purred. No struggle, no nothin'. It was like he knew I was his person.

    We adopted a cat from a small adoption event. Not so much of a process as much as it was having a kitten handed to our 3yr old and going “look papa, she loves me!” So yea bring your 3 year old if you have one: we ended up finding a cat that personality-wise is literally our kid in cat form! 😂

    Hey, I used to work with a Dog Rescue in Bakersfield CA. If you ever want to get a rescue dog, I can tell you about the standard procedure and which rescues to look into, since some procedures differ between rescues. Also, you're gonna want to rescue a dog from a no-kill rescue and from a rescue where all the volunteers/workers actually care about the dogs in their care

    Yesss shelter pups are the BEST! 💕 My advice would be go to the shelter and talk to the staff about what you're looking for. They know each dog's unique personality and are experienced in what makes for a good match. Typically they allow you to take a dog outside or in a separate room and play with it to see if yall are a good pair. If there's a dog you really like you can then go back with Bear to see how they do together.

      They do make brown cats! They're just not super common because it's a recessive mutation of the black fur gene, same with grey. Fun fact, most grey or brown looking tabbies you see are actually most likely black tabbies, who have black stripes on a pale base colour.

    One of my dogs lost her eyes due to our bigger dog accidentally catching her tooth on the eye. The dog got back on the vet and started wagging her tail at the big dog as if they were best friends. We to this day don't know hwy he wasn't negatively affected by it. She obviously cried out for help when it happened but still.

    Jack got Rose onto a lifeboat, but of course she had to jump off last second because, “You jump, I jump.” If Rose had stayed on the lifeboat, Jack could’ve gotten the door to himself. Also, we already know that Jack is smarter than her, Jack knew to wait till the last second, and he knew to swim up because of the suction of the ship. so, in conclusion, if Rose hadn’t been stupid, they could have had an amazing life together. But I also have another theory. I think another reason she didn’t stay on the lifeboat was because she knew that her mother would find her, and that she’d be stuck in that life again. (For any of you wondering why I know so much about the movie, my little cousins love it a lot so we watch it together often.)

    Dog names just makes me think of my family's dog. My parents decided to name her Luna, which I thought was such a stupidly stereotypical dog name, like calling a collie Lassie, so I just decided I'd call her Osten (that's Swedish for The Cheese.) The thing is, she now responds to Osten just as much as she does to Luna. She's an absolute bundle of cute energy.

    My one tip on adopting a dog from a rescue: Be sure to give yourself time to interact with the dog! When I adopted my puppy I spent three hours at the rescue just sitting with all the puppies and getting to know their personalities. This is even more important with adult dogs, since they have more developed behaviors already. With our adult dog, we visited with her outside, inside, and then had her on a trial period for a week. Many rescues offer this, and I think its a great idea to see how the dog will fit into your household, particularly with other pets. But also: don't ignore behavioral warning signs! We briefly had a puppy who had an incredibly strong prey drive, and wasn't really able to bond well with humans. Essentially, she was like a fluffy golden wolf. Looking back, we should have noticed the signs. (Not looking at our faces, not playing with the other puppies, extremely tense when other dogs barked nearby etc.) So for sure watch out for those signs. One last thing: Adopting a puppy is kind of like shopping for fancy clothes. You have to assert yourself, or you will end up with something that just won't work out. People who volunteer or work at animal shelters are amazing individuals, doing and awesome service for the community. They really care about their animals and they REALLY WANT TO FIND THEM HOMES. You may encounter some pressure to adopt the dog, and you will probably get pushback if you express behavioral concerns. But all in all rescue dogs are wonderful, and I'm sure there's one out there for you!

    My parents dog was a rescure, and he had really hard times being scared of everything in the beginning. All he did was hide under the bed so it really took some time for him to start trusting us. But after that point he was just such a cuddler and super playful. Like I could play with him for hours hes in and I could also just cuddle with him for hours (only interrupted when he hears either the dog or food). So I think its hard to really get to know the dog quickly when hes a rescue but I guess every dog is different so others might have the opposite experience.

    I was grown up with a dog in a 10-floor household with an elevator and she perfectly understood the principle of using it 😅
    She remembered on which floor I was when I sent her alone to another one and she returned. It was absolutely impossible to trick her with the elevator. (It was an old soviet elevator with no mass restriction, so it could go with me, a dog or even empty).

    I have an orange tabby cat that acts like a dog. My daughter (she isn't even 4 yet) trained him somehow. He knows cues like sit, come, food, are you hungry?, bedtime, no, wait, and hugs. Also he is incredibly chill and affectionate. 10/10 would recommend an orange tabby male cat for you and Bear.

    I'm more of a cat person, but in my experience with shelters, most shelters I know of will allow you to spend some time with their animals before you make a decision. So I'd go with some time to spare, let the shelter workers know what practical things I can accomodate, and go spend some time with the dogs. I always end up finding and falling in love with a pet there. Once I came home with two when I meant to get one, but it felt right to keep them together.
    A lot of the rest is just the two of you learning to co-habitate, the same as any roomie or family member.
    I think several shelters let you walk dogs too, so if you're very active with your dog, you might be able to arrange to take some dogs you've met on a run with you and see how they react to exercise.

    I've been looking at grey hounds because i'd like to get one someday. I've heard they're actually a lot more chill than you would think. They just need the typical walks you would give any other dog and then they're just happy to chill. Italian grey hounds are smaller versions. They get seaparation anxiety if they are left alone but i think they'd be good with bear. They'd have a buddy. The funny thing about them is they are small but when they bark, they sound big and scary

    I rescued a dog while in China and she is perfect for me. My tip is to not have a specific dog in mind. I did not care what breed or age. (They recommend a small dog though since I would be traveling eventually home) So I stood in the middle of the small dog pen and one dogs kept coming back and I got to watch her interact with the others. After about 30-40mins of watching this little dog always kept coming back and staying with me. They others all got tired of me by then. So I knew we were meant to be. It has been the best 2 years so far of my life with her by my side.

    HA! The elevator one made me laugh so hard. I call it the magic box, I have a 1 y/o Rotti and I swear he gets the most confused look on his face whenever we get in the elevator, especially if there is another dog in the lobby. He rushes out of the elevator when we get to our floor like he's going to battle to save the world from the furry intruder just to stop dead and look at me like I'm a wizard when the dog isn't outside the elevator anymore lol. SO true about knowing not to get off the elevator if we stop at a floor that isn't ours though.

    I'm all about dogs in general. Seeing Bear in your videos just instantly puts a smile on my face. My boss and I help dogs and generally pets and sometimes animals in need; we build wheelchairs for them and it's honestly such a satisfaction watching their mood swift from the moment they put on their wheelchair. My most exciting case was with this shelter dog that was unable to walk with her front legs and as soon as the wheelchair was on her, she fled with speed, not caring at all about the stairs. She'd run up and down without any problem! It was such a heartwarming moment!
    Thank you for bringing out Bear every once in a while Mike. I appreciate the extra serotonin boost.

    About the rescue: a good one is to take your current dog with you. Make sure they get along. It also tells a lot about their personality. A lot of times, rescue centers also tell you all things (good or bad) they know about the dog. No dog is bad. Everyone can be saved ❤️

    I'm a dog trainer in training (weird I know) but I've trained over 5 show dogs. The reason Bear knows which floor to get off is your body language. Even if you aren't aware, your body makes adjustments and prepares to leave the elevator before the doors even open. Those slight things are indications for Bear to prepare for command (moving, walking, sitting, ect.) Your dog is very intuitive to you. It's actually a sign that he's constantly waiting for your cues.

    I adopted an adult rescue dog end last year and it's been very different from getting a puppy but not all bad. Here's the quick version:
    Selection: I contacted the shelter manager and told her roughly what I was looking for: basically a dog that was gentle enough to put up with my existing terrier cross breed, small to medium size, any breed, preferably male, tho it doesn't really matter, good with cats as there is one in one half of the house. I also told her I'm happy to take one with minor health issues since those are usually difficult to find homes for. I told her I have stairs so the dog needs to be OK with that. She sent me photos of about 12 dogs that matched my request, with a special focus on the ones with minor health issues as its rare for them to get people interested in taking that on.
    I made an appointment to go see the dogs. After meeting each one, one of them stood out to me. Whereas the others were quite content, this guy really seemed to need some extra love. He was extremely soft natured, and I've had experience dealing with that. I went back and visited my top 3. By the time I was done visiting there was no doubt in my mind. There was one other dog at the shelter that caught my eye (I tried to put on blinkers coz it's so hard for me to not want to take them all home, so basically went in with my heart hardened with determination: just one, think clearly). He wouldn't have got on with my existing dog as they have Similar personalities. If he is there when my old boy goes, I'll go back for him. If not then he's found a home and I'm sure is happy.
    Initial take away: a lot of rescues go through a lot of emotions during the rehoming process. They leave everything they know and are put in situations where we expect them to be fine, but it takes them time to adjust. You have to give them lots of time and reassurance. Lots. Introduce one new thing at a time: ie, new home environment. Only when they're comfy with that, do u add the next thing: driving in car, meeting family, etc. They will show signs of distress in ways that u might not realise, ie, panting a lot. It really helps if the shelter owner can give u a little talk about things to expect etc. It also helps if they can match the suggested dogs personality to yours somewhat. Ie you would want a dog that's a bit more self confident, for example. Also one that has been fostered in a home environment before might help. Mine was a shelter boy all 6 years of his life, so everything was a huge change for him.
    Pros: Adult dogs learn faster than puppies. They don't need to learn through trial and error, tho they may still take chances - but you can just be firm and they usually respect the boundary.
    He is actually better trained wrt handling than my own dog - let's me clip all his nails, does as told, let's me brush him, wash him, etc. This was done regularly by a staff of volunteers at the shelter. It has made owning him soooo much easier.
    Tip : Adopt at a time when you have a little extra time available to be there for them. They will need plenty of reassurance and comforting. It helps the bonding process a lot if you can be around to comfort them when they're stressed.
    With having another pet, u might want to arrange to take bear out to meet his new potential siblings and see if he has any preferences. They don't always like to share their humans or home.
    Shelter dogs appreciate everything about life in a home - couches, food, cuddles, walks, games. It's not just a way to be with their human, it's like a little dog experience all on its own. They give you their love way before you've figured out what makes them tick.
    The hardest part has been forming a bond. I feel like it's less like having a child and more like making a friend. It takes a bit of time for you to both get to know each other. But the love does come - you just have to try not to think about it and enjoy the experience. The more you get to know each other, the more the love comes. We're 5 months in and it's already starting to feel really good. We appreciate each other quite a lot. We are both big cuddlers
    Biggest con: he doesn't like sharing me, and he gets stressed when I'm away later than usual. However he is tolerant and well behaved about both. I just have to have a hand on each of my boys when they want cuddles simultaneously. Also he's a bit unaware of himself around the older dog, so I often have to make sure he's not bumping him over accidentally etc.
    Oh, and he's an incredibly good watch dog too! Only barks when something strange is going on, and can hear a pin drop when it comes to that.
    That's my experience. Hope it helps! A kitty might actually be great with bear. Bear is a tolerant dog and a cat wouldn't impeed your relationship. They are also usually quite low maintenance - which would be a plus with such a high maintenance dog! Not sure how the cat will get on with you tho... Dogs tend to be more tolerant of vibrant personality types 😅😂

    Lol so true about wiener dogs! I have 2 wieners and a cockapoo. When I have a treat and say sit, my cockapoo will sit immediately, but my brown wiener goes, “nah, just give me the treat and we’ll be equal”. They have so much personality even though one of my wieners has to be on Prozac for anger issues. She’s still so sweet around family!

    Getting a rescue just requires a lot of patience, I have 3 rescues who now you couldn't tell that they had bad lives. One of them took around 2 years to fully settle but the others took 6 months max. When you find a dog, it usually doesn't matter on their past as I'm sure you would give them the time they need to settle. Rescues are usually quite jumpy but mainly calm and cuddly. They just want attention and love.

    Most of the rescues around my area have been fostered before being put up for adoption so the personality traits are listed on the dog's profile. Whether they can be around cats, other dogs, children, potty trained, need a lot of exercise, low key personality, etc. It really helped my husband and I find our big guy a new friend after our 14 year old weenie dog passed away. Maybe check that out if you're wanting to find Bear a doggo friend 🙂

    I have a dog, who is a Shih Tzu, and he is just a dog that will bite the hell out of anyone. He is SO AGGRESSIVE that he can definitely earn the title of the most aggressive dog. Honestly, sometimes I think of getting a cat for myself, and letting my brother deal with Oreo. I do like him, but when I come to home, he most definitely tries to bite me.
    Anyways, I wish that I had a dog that had a personality like Bear, cuddly, lazy and chill. Hugs and kisses to Bear and Roxie 🥰🥰

    This is the sweetest thing! My favorite 2 parts: the considerate pillow barrier VS the cone for comfort level. And the mention of getting a cat. Just do it. You know you want to. They will keep each other company. Or battle for your attention. Either way, you cant go wrong. Warm lap and warm feet!

    It’s easy to train a dog when they’re smart and trust you. It really doesn’t take much. In college, I had a 4 month old dog start to follow me when I was checking my mail. She had a collar on, but no tags. So we walked the neighborhood trying to find her owner. She followed me wherever I went, no one recognized her, no one claimed her, no one posted notices or anything, and she never ran off (for about the first 2 weeks in the morning when I let her go to the bathroom I didn’t put her on a leash and she still came back when she was done).
    I had a roommate and I trained her not to go into his room. Just positive reinforcement. No shock collar, no water squirting for getting it wrong. Spent a couple minutes on it for a couple days in a row and she just wouldn’t go into the bedroom.
    My roommate was dating this girl who ended up getting a kitten and she’d bring it over. My puppy (about 15 pounds at the time) wanted to play with this 2 pound kitten. The kitten didn’t want to play. They were in the living room, the kitten was trying to hide under the entertainment center, my dog was trying to pull it out. Then the kitten ran off into my roommate’s room (where his carrier was) and my dog started to chase him and then came to a dead stop at the bedroom door like she was trained to. She just sat there waiting for the kitten to come back out.
    My roommate’s girlfriend was beyond shocked, like she thought it was magic. It was one of the most impressive thing she’d seen.
    When my dog and I moved. I trained her again not to go into certain areas of the house where my roommates were. Then, after college, when my roommates moved out and the house was all mine, I told her she could go into those parts of the house and she did, knowing it was ok.

    Great video! As far as adopting a dog goes, I would look into local shelters. You can find them online and most have updated Facebook pages. Be picky about the type of dog, so it’s right for you and the dog. Having a big heart for any breed is great, but getting a dog that fits your lifestyle is going to best. We adopted one dog and the shelter was pretty thorough about placing them. Good luck if you go that direction. Blessings!

    We use the inflatable donut cone like you after my grandparents dog had a dental exam and teeth removed. She broke her plastic cone from the vet within an hour, and while she wasn't happy to wear that donut for 2 weeks, it allowed her mouth to heal pretty decently.

    My working theory about why dogs want to come back in just to go outside again is because they're trying to lead you outside with them so you two can play together.
    My only issue is that I have a limited data pool of just me and my dog.
