A new home seemed so close when Jennifer Barry, a woman with a senior dog of her own, stepped forward with the determination to bring Bear home after feeling a connection with her, but, sadly, the fit wasn't perfect. "Unfortunately I am sad to report that we did not end up adopting Bear," Barry wrote on Facebook.
"Although my dog did a good job, my husband was concerned it wasn't going to work. There were two other applications so hopefully one of them will be able to take Bear, but if anyone else is interested please contact BARCS. Bear is a sweet, sweet girl who desperately needs a forever home," she wrote.
Thankfully, there was another potential family in line for Bear - and yesterday, she was officially adopted into her home, where she'll also have a puppy sister to keep her company.
