This 1 year old shepherd/lab mix is a total charmer. He’s affectionately named Polar Bear by our training and care team. We adopted him from Labs and More Rescue out of San Diego. He is friendly with humans and dogs of all sizes, eager to work (and have a job), in love with training, and happy as can be.
In partnership with The Fish Market, the name Wilson was chosen to honor Bob’s dedication to the San Diego community and philanthropy in general, plus of course his great work as a founder of The Fish Market, Wilson’s sponsor.
We are so thankful to The Fish Market for making Wilsons journey possible!
Wilson is currently working through handler training with his veteran handler, Shawn Brown, USMC, and the pair are doing fantastic!
