Bear, a big shaggy cuddle monster

Bear is an adorable, lovely big youngster, with a black soft shaggy coat, he is quite large weighing in at 45kg fully grown. He is in need of an experienced owner as he would benefit from obedience training and more outdoor socialising. He is not aggressive just very large and excitable, he loves to bark at other dogs, wanting to get to them to play. He generally just needs time spent with him and more exercise, as he is a lovely boy. The owner has two very young children 4 and 2, he is so good with them and he adores the Collie he lives with but he bosses him about.


Breed : Old English Sheepdog cross Collie
Age : 14 months

Bear is being rehomed from his home as its not working out with the existing dog in the house.

Bear is an enthusiastic lad and full of confidence. He seems to be overpowering the smaller dog who is becoming less confident, Bear is just throwing his weight about really pushing in front of him, that sort of thing, not letting the collie get a look in.

He is very friendly and has a soft look about him.

Bear likes children, he currently lives with a 2 and 4 year old, the children love him.

Cats are an unknown factor as he has not seen one.

We think he could be homed with another dog as he is used to that, and never been on his own, but maybe a female dog who would be firm with him and his new owners would have to be strong on the rules and not let him overpower, equally he would be a lovely project for someone too.

Bear woul benefit from ongoing training as he is strong on his lead, he would enjoy learning new things.
