First, it is important and required to fully understand the breed. The Maremma Sheepdog is a flock and herd guardian. Their characteristics abroad both with temperament and physical composure are as such that beautifully equip them to be this type of incredible working class dog. Little Bear is a very big dog with a heavy dense dual layer coat. Maremma Sheepdogs are heavy shedders and will blow their coat two times per year. It is important and required to keep the coat brushed regularly. The breed is heat sensitive and this must be kept into consideration at all times for their safety. Little Bear is on a high quality salmon and potato based dog food. This type of food is required to avoid and alleviate inflamed itchy ears that he experiences while consuming other types of food of which he eats 4.5 cups daily. He enjoys treats from time to time, squash and pumpkin are his favorite and once in a while he enjoys chewing an antler, hoof or bully stick. Little Bear's activity level is low to moderate. He requires the opportunity to participate in mental and physical stimulation to maintain well-being. This involves walks, affection/interaction from humans, play activities and enrichment that involves the senses. He loves going for car rides, going to pet stores, strolls around the neighborhood, playing in the back yard, fetch, exploring, patrolling and watching over the yard. His ultimate favorite is spending time with his loved ones. He adores children and meeting other people. He is very gentle. He would both excel and easily qualify as a certified therapy dog, if given the opportunity. He walks beautifully on a leash and exhibits well-balanced mannerisms. It is required that Little Bear never allowed to roam off leash at any time except when in a fully fenced secure space. A large fully fenced yard is an adoption requirement for him and the fence must be sturdy and secure. Little Bear is very intelligent and knows how to open fence gates, locking them is important. He will look for weak spots within a fence to push under and will. He can push up and under chainlink fence if it is not 100%secured at the bottom. This need to meander and wander is typical to the breed, he will patrol his perimeter and will wander away if left off leash in an unenclosed fully secured space. Overall, Little Bear is truly a one of a kind soul who deserves a well suited experienced home to ensure his lifelong wellbeing. It is required that those interested have a large fully fenced yard, breed awareness and experience with livestock guardian dogs, plus be fully aware of the necessary items that successfully promote lifelong ownership of such a majestic and noble dog.
