Border Collie Karelian Bear Dog Mix For Adoption – Nashville Tennessee

Meet Sensational Sly – Border Collie Bear Dog Mix Seeking Loving Home in Nashville TN and Area

Sly is one of those dogs you don’t soon forget. He is so handsome with his thick and lustrous black and white coat. It reminds you of a Panda. He has deep brown eyes that are so expressive. He almost seems human.

Sly is 6 years young and in good health. He has been neutered and is up to date on shots. Sly has had obedience training and is house trained. He is very devoted and forms a close bond with his people.

Being a mix of the super intelligent Border Collie and extremely brave and quite rare Karelian Bear dog, Sly has so much to offer the right owner. Right now, Sly is in a very loving home, but with an owner who is not able to give him the environment or exercise he needs to thrive.

Sly’s owner is a lady in her early 70’s living in a townhouse. She feels that she isn’t able to give Sly the confident leadership he needs when away from the house on walks. Living in an urban area with all the sounds, sights and scents of other people and other animals around them seems to make Sly constantly on alert. Given that one of is breeds was developed to keep Bears away, and the other to control the movements of other animals, it’s understand why his current environment is triggering anxiety in this beautiful boy.

Sly’s owner wants the best for him, and, having realized that she may have made a somewhat impulsive decision in adopting Sly, is committed to finding Sly’s forever home and family.

Sly will need a home that is not in a congested, urban area. Ideally, a country home near the mountains with plenty of room to run, sniff, romp, swim and practice his dog skills will be most suitable. A ranch or farm might be a good fit as well.

Sly would fit in well in a home with children older than 12, or an adults only home. Sly is wary of other dogs, but may do well if properly introduced. It is not known how he would be with cats, but likely would be OK, so long as the cats are dog-friendly.

If you have been looking for a Karelian Bear Dog or Border Collie to adopt in Tennessee, and you have the right kind of home in which Sly would do well, please offer him a home today. Sly and his owner, Cheryl are looking forward to hearing from you soon. You can fill out an adoption application using the form below.
