We read the article about Karelian Bear Dogs. Our Koda is a seven year old Karelian Bear Dog and is very friendly with small kids, all people and all size dogs. Every time we go anywhere with Koda, their are so many good comments about him and his history. Only a few people know about these kind of dogs. He loves to run, go for walks and ride in our vehicles. He does chase critters such rabbits, as he now has caught 9 so far plus several Wood Rats. He does not like cats. When ever I go somewhere with out Koda, he goes crazy when I return, jumping on and licking me. He is our other child as we love him so much and is so special to us. Thank you for the Article.
