Bear is a rescue dog that has charmed every creature, including my cats. It took me only 6 years to figure out that attention does the trick for him. I had Labs before and they are into food. Not him! He comes to the office often and is very well behaved.
At times he does a little 'doggy therapy' and resolves tense situations. Herding is his thing. I had to change my front bumper because he was nipping it so much. The auto mechanic could not figure out what had happened to the bumper! Now I can tell a good herder by his owners front bumper.
I would love to breed him. He is AKC and in perfect health.
