|Karelian Bear Dog|
Devoted to His Master.
The Karelian Bear Dog is a medium-sized member of the
Spitz family of dogs and is considered to be a close relative
of the Russian Laiki but more domesticated. The breed has
been bred pure in Finland since 1930 where it is highly
regarded by huntsmen who use the dog to hunt bear,
elk, moose, deer, hare, and wolf.
The Karelian Bear Dog's build is robust, strong, slightly
longer than high. He has a thick coat, cocked ears, is of an
inbound character, brave and persevering. He is renowned
for his scenting ability. Being rather aggressive towards
other dogs, he works best alone.
The Karelian Bear Dog has been recognized by the
Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) since 1979, and throughout
Europe (FCI) for many years. The breed however, is not yet
recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC), although
there is a growing interest and following of the breed
throughout the country.
