Bear is a sweet, 3 year old, 68 lb Shepherd mix (Long haired). 

Bear is super smart and responsive. He is incredibly sweet to "his person", and learns commands and tries very hard to please. He does need a Shep savvy person, a leader, as he does possess some guardian instincts. He is not the type of dog you could just let a stranger walk up to. He is not a "background dog," he has a sensitive, intuitive, alert nature. He is perfect in the house, crates perfectly when needed, lounge-y when it is time to chill, very good in the house. But he does need activity to be happy. He needs daily walks and/or running around a property. It just makes him happy.  

He can go for walks on a leash just fine, ignoring people most of the time as he is busy smelling, smelling, smelling, but you'd want to give him a wide birth when passing people. He can get sometimes excitable when seeing another big dog on a leash or in a yard when he is walking, but he can be trained and re-directed to calm down and keep moving forward (He has made so much progress on this). He ironically can live very well with other dogs! He just gets excited when sees (mostly the bigger ones) out in public. 

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. He is sort of reminds me of a thoroughbred horse when he runs/gallops, very beautiful and powerful. He has lived in the metro area, and is walked daily, but we could see him loving the country life as he loves to be outside and he would love a big area to run around in.

We are looking for someone who loves to be active, or loves to walk their dog, as he psychologically really needs this.

He would be an excellent "guard dog" in the sense of alerting, and just being so devoted to his person/people, (but not too fond of strangers).
If you had company over, he should be crated or muzzled in that sense.

He is easy to transfer his allegiance (and this has been tested) by taking him on a car ride muzzled, then taking him for a walk in his new place or area, and he instantly transfers his allegiance. He just needs to reference to someone or a couple as a leader and he is good with that person(s).
