The fourth picture? With the crossed paws? *dies*

What a strikingly handsome boy he is! Absolutely gorgeous! When I scrolled upon the 5th picture of him standing so at attention, my initial gut reaction was Doberman mixed in there with the shepherd. I love the fact that he is a lap dog, my feeling is the bigger the lap dog the better!!!! Here's to many years of happiness, health and love with him.

I thought they were Doberman ears, too! He is so handsome! And I love the crossed paws picture...

What a stalwart, aristocratic, alert, and bright citizen he is. Beautiful animal. I'd have taken him home in a heartbeat. Thanks for doing that. He gets all 11!!!!

He looks like a sweetheart.
And it's always the big dogs that like being lapdogs the most. :)

Great Dog!
What a great friend you have in that boy. So wonderful of you to rescue him from a shelter. He's super!

Can you believe this guy was in a shelter? Who could not love this dog? Lucky you and enjoy!

Hey Bear, there you are! This is Bear's Dad. I forgot to mention in the description I sent in that he is 7 1/2 years old now. He's starting to get old with the gray showing in his snout. Also, to add to his adoption, he was in the shelter because his original family moved to a new place and their lease didn't allow pets in the home. Apparently they tried to find him a good home, but couldn't, and so they were forced to take him their :(. He was only in the shelter for a short time, so he lucked out and escaped rather quickly. Now he's spoiled rotten, as he should be. Several people have commented on the crossed paws pose. He sits like that all the time, it's very amusing. The pictures don't capture all of his personality, that's for sure. Thanks dailypuppy, for putting him on!

wow, what a beautiful boy, he looks so...loyal, and adorable! i love his ears and wet nose....can i have him?? lol

I think Bear is Beautiful. I had a German Shepherd that lived for 16 years. So looking at this sweet boy, just brings tears to my eyes. Enjoy him, and thanks for taking him in. I know he is smart, and loyal....

Your big boy is gorgeous! I agree about the doberman blood. Eighteen dogs make up the shepherd foundation so if any of those mixed in you wouldn't see it, but the stance, coloring, markings, close cropped hair, look across the forhead and eyes just scream doberman. Shepherd is the 3rd smartest dog in the world, Doberman is #5, so no wonder he tries to outsmart you. Love to you both, my shepherd is 12 now and the best friend I ever had.

Aw, look at those ears! He's lovely--and a very spry and youthful 7 1/2!

Bear is a champion. I had a Shepherd mix named Ryan years ago. She disappeared after an earthquake. She had Lab though because she loved the water. It is great to hear a happy shelter story. Thx.

WOW!!! What a very striking dog-- he is 'fetching' 'majestic'-- he looks so regal and he looks very alert and intellegent! In every pic he seems so aware of his surroundings- He is one handsome lad and the cross paws pose is just heart warming! I'm sad for his previous owners, I'm sure they miss him but really glad that you got him! And hey, he deserves his own spot on the couch!

this dog is AMAZING! Look at those eyes! So full of nobility and truth. He's very special.

Bear is so regal looking! He sounds like he has a great personality, too! :D :D
Of course, he does look mostly German shepherd, and I definitely do see some doberman in him. I think he could also have some akita in him. So striking!

The picture of Bear smiling is one of the best dog pictures I've ever seen! He sounds as if he found someone to spoil him, which shows how smart he is!!

Just wanted to add that I also see a LOT of Belgian Malinois in's the url of the Belgian Malinois page on Dog Breed Information Center: http://www.dogbreedi
(check out the first pic on it)
Bear is such an impressive-looking dog!

Bear is amazing! I bet he doesn't miss much with those ears. What a beautiful dog. You are lucky to have each other.
May 20, 2007 sylvanbliss
That's one great looking dog! Love the close coat, sleek! Beauty marks on his cheeks too....those ears, magnificent! Getting gray only adds to his dignity.

Why in the world would anyone (with a dog like this) move someplace with a no pets clause in their lease? I would have kept looking because I wouldn't have parted with my dog.

I'm glad he has his own sofa spot with you. Scratch those ears for me?

So regal & distinguished!
What a magnificent beast! & A loveable lapdog too!!!!
You were truly blessed the day you found him.

What a beautiful, majestic boy. I hope all is well with Bear and is family.

Many wishes for a beautiful, love-filled life with Bear.

This is the prettiest (sorry Bear)- Most handsom German Shepherd I've ever seen. What a prescious boy you have! I love big-dog-lap-dogs, they're like warm body pillows. Many happy healthy years to you both. :)

Bear is definately x boxer. The behaviours and temperament you describe, the larger front paws, the white paws, the white on the chest, the slightly overhanging lips, the pointed ears, the white tip of the tail, the white in the snout, the shorter snout, the slightly less muscular rear legs, the look... we have one too! Definately x boxer.

What kind of mix is that.
Jan 11, 2009 DJackson
I am adopting a dog the shelter calls a boxer/sheperd mix. She is brindle with white chest short coat. But those ears....her ears are about 5-6 inches long. Narrow face dark muzzle and long tail. She has same features as bear except different color

Bear is beautiful! He looks like my Chloe, also a GS-mix, but mostly GS! They are so smart and loveable. Chloe was a stray that a neighbor picked up, but when they got another dog, we volunteered (quite selfishly, might I add) to take her off their hands. She has since had all her shots and been spayed, and is quite the character, along with her 'sister', Bailey and the old man of the group, Bubba.

Magnificent animal, oh Bear you do look rather regal in this picture, I love the attitude and the aloof look, yes let them eat cake.....well done.
Apr 19, 2010 CooperLover
This is one of my favorite pictures. He;s such a beautiful dog! And i think there might be some boxer in him, telling from his white belly, legs, and coat!
