Bear is a sweet, 2.5 year old, 68 lb German Shep 39%/Rott, 9%White Swiss Shepherd, 13% Saint Bernard, 3% Border Collie2% Alaskan Malamute, 2% Chow Chow mixed breed dog.

Bear is one of the smartest dogs we have had in rescue. He is super "in tune" with people, very responsive, listens very well, would be a super star in training class, could learn agility and all kinds of things. Bear is a beautiful boy and has long fur and a big fluffy tail. 

Bear LOVES to go for walks, he must go for his walks to be happy. 
He does super well on a leash, is very responsive and it is enjoyable to go on adventures with him. 

Bear IS good with other dogs- BUT if he sees other big dogs on a leash, that does tend to get him worked up in and you have to manage him, re-direct him or calm him and keep moving- (re-direct)  at times.

He has lived peaceablly with other dogs, even other male alpha dogs.

He just has to be introduced properly (and not under restrictions like leashes or fences) and he will live peaceably with other dogs.

Bear does have some of that guardian instinct of a shepherd. He will bark at strangers he sees out the window or out the fence- he is an "alerter", however he can be re-directed fairly easily on this too.

However he does seem to be a dog that would do best with a one person or two person household/leader, and not a lot of traffic from outsiders.

He can be suspicious of strangers, and would need to be "managed" either with a muzzle or crated or whatever if someone came to visit, unless he really got to know that person over time.

The one nice thing about Bear with his guardian instincts though is he can easily transfer who he refers to as his leader- extremely quickly. 

So if a new person, "takes over" with him, (we use a muzzle to start),has him go in their car, takes him on a ride, takes him out lets him walk and smell and check out his new surroundings. that new person will now be his new leader. 

So as long as he doesn't reference you as "a stranger" he will be devoted to you, whoever that new "you" is. Bear has lived with 6 different people (4 single people and one couple) and did absolutely great with each of those situations. He just doesn't do great if that person or couple has "strangers" come over, or he is taken to a new home with strangers. He can seem comfortable at first and happy, but he then can regard "others" as suspicious. 

So he is best in a situation with someone or a couple that can have him in a fenced in yard, take him managed walks- easy to do, and really doesn't have him interacting with strangers.

Bear would make an excellent farm dog. He would make an excellent dog for a single person or couple that wants a guardian type dog, and knows how to manage him away from strangers when necessary.
