German Shepherd / Aussie Mix For Adoption in Nashville TN – Adopt Bear Today!
Hi, My name is Bear!
There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee. All supplies will be included.
Are you looking for your new best friend? Well here I am! I am a very handsome dog! I am a mix of German Shepherd and Australian Shepherd. I am super smart, very loyal, full of joy and always ready to please my owner. I am just 6 years old and very healthy. I have been neutered and am up to date on shots.
I am house broken and crate trained. I am not too big – just 45 pounds.
My owner loves me to bits. He wants the very best for me, and unfortunately, his circumstances make that impossible to acheive. He is working very long hours, and I am spending far too much time alone in my crate, or by myself out in the yard. I need exercise to keep me happy and healthy, and he just isn’t able to give me that with his long hours.
He is looking for the best home ever for me. I am such a good boy and really deserve to have a loving, attentive family. I would be best suited for a family with older children who have a big, securely fenced yard, and lots of time to spend with me. I would be in Heaven on a farm or acreage, too.
I am good with some dogs, but not all. It would depend on the dog. I do not have experience with small children or cats. Usually children older than 12 are the best choice as friends for a dog like me.
I will be rehomed with all my supplies. My owner would dearly love to keep in touch with me, but only if that is OK with my new owners.
Please offer me the loving home I need and deserve today. I can’t wait to show you my wonderful personality and wag and wiggle my way into your heart.
Love and licks,

Bear’s Current Home Environment
Over the past year our home life has changed. I got married and we moved houses. Our new setup is not great for bear and has become a huge source of conflict.
Bear’s Current Family:
I am married and live in Nashville. I spend a lot of time at work, which is also a contributing factor.
Bear’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
He enjoys chew toys, going on walks, and going to the park.
Cute Bear Story:
Why is Bear Being Rehomed?
I do not take this decision lightly, but I honestly feel like he could thrive in a better situation. I work long unpredictable hours and my current home situation is no longer conducive to taking good care of bear. At our old home we had a dog door and a fenced in back yard where he could come in and out as he pleased. He spent much of the day outside running in a large backyard, but was able to come in from the elements whenever he wanted. I was overly optimistic that when we moved into a new house, we could come up with a setup that would work; however, this has not been the case and it has become a major stressor on my marriage. My wife’s dog and him play too rough for them both to be inside together unsupervised. I now work even longer hours and he ends up with less attention and more time either alone in the yard or in a crate. He does not seem to get along with my sister-in-law’s dog at all. So anytime they come over, it creates more stress and tension as well. I’m just hopeful to find a setup for him that is better than what we are currently providing.
Bear’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
Honestly I’m looking for somewhere that would be an improvement from his current situation. I do love him and care for him, but I just feel like maybe somebody else could give him a better life. I think if he went to someone with a large yard/land that would be best. He does enjoy being outside and being active, which helps as an outlet for his energy.
In a perfect situation I would like to have some sort of contact with Bear. That being said, I understand that it may not be realistic.
