Manatee — Lil’ Bear

Lil’ Bear is a 4-year-old male mixed breed dog. He is a big, goofy boy who has sadly spent half his life in a shelter. He loves to play with toys and is full of energy. When outside, he likes to roll in the grass and run in circles. His favorite thing is to lay beside a human and get belly rubs. He’s slowly learning to socialize with other dogs, but still requires slow introductions. He will do best in a home without small children or cats. For more information, e-mail adoptions@mymanatee.org.
