Bear is a nice boy, happy to trot along with you on the leash. He gets a little nervous when he is crowded so he would not be suitable for a family with small children. 

When Bear came into rescue, his coat was completely overgrown. You should expect to need to groom him. 

Thank you to Sharon for being Bear's Guardian Angel.
