Bear is a 5-year-old male Akita, I think mixed with cattle dog, and weighs 70 pounds. He had a rough start at the shelter as he was left chained to the chain link fence in front of the shelter, however, he is doing well now. Bear is very loving and gives kisses and plays with stuffies once he is introduced to you. He does bark at the kennel gate and would make a great 'alert' dog, telling you about any strangers or visitors approaching the home. Bear will do best with a slow introduction to new things and a quiet home. He is smart like a cattle dog, learns quickly, and would make a great protection dog. Adoption fee $75.
