My name is Bear! I know, you've heard that name for a million chows, but I am special! I love to ride in the car and would like to sleep with someone if allowed to. I grew up tied in a yard...broke loose...got hit by a car and my not-so-nice owner brought me in to a vet, but didn't want to pay for surgery. I was turned over to a rescue group and they took care of me. My leg has healed on its own and I am fine. I especially like women. I am about 8 years old. Check out my best friend, Holly. She's available too! Oh, and I would also prefer a home without cats.
