    Have a friend with an American bulldog , happiest,friendliest, most lovable dog you could ever come across. Until she smells a bear- she becomes an unholy rocket and the bear leaves the property, every time . God help anything that ever messes with her family.

    KBD is bred for that, but they can be mean *******s.

    Consider terrain hunted for larger breeds, which are typically pre-disposed to hip dysplasia over longer periods of time (GS, BMD, etc.).

    My dog is a scaredy-cat pointer mix, but the toughest dog when a bear is around, so I think most dogs with a prey drive will probably do pretty good, I'd focus on the other aspects, as bear defense can be taught, and nothing can be tested until you encounter the real thing!

    WOW time flies over a year since I posted this picture the girls are now just over 17 months old since then the pups parents had another litter we ended up with their 6 1/2 month old younger brother as well.

    Here is a pic from two weeks ago Max is 10 1/2 months old weighs 115lbs just got neutered Friday so he's not happy right now, the girls are 17 months old weigh appr 110lbs and the last but not least is our 9 1/2 year old hypothyroid Chessie she weighs in at a heavy 110lbs her name is Cocobear.

    Funniest post I have ever read...

    LOL...

    Yes and no...

    I have a friend with a cattle ranch they call me if a cow or calf die I head up and pick it up if its a calf I quarter it if its larger the plan is to cut it into large roast size chunks and freeze it.

    Last fall Cabela's had the large CanCookers on sale for $30 from $130 I then also purchased a 60,000btu single burner stove.

    Appr every two weeks I cook up a pot full of stew with carrots - peas - oats - pasta - beef broth - meat etc put a couple containers into my garage fridge the rest into the freezer I add this to their dry food was giving them Costco Kirkland brand dry food at $40 for a 15.6kg bag and the Costco canned dog food $.95/can.

    I now at the breeders advise go to Walmart and buy them Ol Roy dry food depending on the type its $20 - $25 for a 20kg bag.

    I also add our meal left overs to their stew containers my food bill is now less than 1/2 of what it was at appr $50 - $60/month.

    Dog slams into black bear at full speed chasing it quickly away! What a dog!

    And it’s not a Karelian!
