7 year old Bear is an extremely great find and will fit well into almost any home. He has been tested with many dogs and while he can be a little over-excited upon first meeting them, he really only wants to play. He forgets how big he is and that it might be scary to some dogs at first. He is great with strangers in public as well as when they enter the home and has yet to meet anyone he doesn’t love to get belly rubs from. He has also been tested with children and small animals. Bear loves to play with toys and chew on bones. He picks them up and throws them around and also enjoys a good game of tug. He is housebroken and easy going in the home environment. He just wants to follow his person from room to room and find a good place to lie down nearby. He still needs some work with walking politely on leash, but does also know a few simple commands such as lie down, sit, and speak.
