Bear, 5, is part corgi and part border collie, and is still full of puppy energy. She loves playing fetch (she loves her ball) and going for runs. Bear knows all her basic commands. She is said to be good with kids over 8, and is house- and kennel-trained. In her last home, Bear did not always get along with her dog companion because of her dominant personality, and may do best in a home with no other dogs. She can be protective of her people, and may show aggression towards outsiders, so she needs a handler able to work with her. Overall, she is a sweet girl, and would make a great companion for anyone with an active lifestyle.
