Border Collie-Karelian Bear Dog Mix Dog For Adoption in NASHVILLE, TN, USA

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 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.

Request to Add a New Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
