Thread Starter 
So... I got a hold of Bears owners today and the Dude said hes still available... and hes gonna be calling me soon to go pick Bear up!!!!!!
Im SOOOOO Happy!!! I cant wait!!! I talked to the guy about an hr and a half ago and he said he'd call me back in an hr to an hr and a half.. so he'll be calling soon!!! Im gonna post pics right away!! so in a couple hours you'll se him!!!

Still.. the Name change is unchosen... here are the options ((im keeping Bear in the name though)):
Baby Bear
Foxy Bear ((to Girly?))
Tod Bear ((a Tod is a Male Fox.. and he looks like a Fox to me ))
[[other ideas welcome!]]

I just dont like plain Bear as his full name... it doesnt fit him.

Thanx laureen227 for the Naming advice!

So hes settling in nice.. I kinda went to sleep around Noon and woke up at Midnight.. Bear woke me up twice to go Potty!! he likes to bark at my lil sister for some reason. For now I walk him through the house on a leash and while in the house hes always on a leash ((just till Bonnie is ok with him)) and when I was walking him through the house to go out he spotted my sister and started barking like crazy then my sister walked up to him and he stopped and was friendly.. i let him out then on the way back in through the house he saw her again and started barking... weird.

So far I know he Loves Burger King Tater-Tots! lol
So Bear met Pinky for the first time... he was walking past my moms door that was open 2 inches.. Pinkys nose was poking out from the other side and Bear walked over.. sniffed the nose then walked away... but Pinky.. he insisted on going after Bear! I had to kinda pick Bear up and push Pinky away with my foot till I could get my mom to get him (Pinky). I guess were gonna have to keep and eye on Pinky for a while .

I have a new thought on Bears Breed... when I first saw him I thought Chihuahua/Pomeranian Mix... but then when I was letting him out a lil bit ago I saw Corgi in him. Now ive never had a Corgi or even met one.. so idk what there Breed characteristics are.. I just know what they look like and im thinking maybe Bear is actually a Chihuahua/Corgi Mix (Chigi).

I learned while cleaning my room.. that Bear is scared of News Paper... even when its not rolled up.

So those are the updates on Bear.. hes doing great!

Thanx!
So far ive learned...Bear likes to use his front Paws to wipe his face, he likes to Jump, hes very active, has a longer snout than a Chi or Pom but also looks like a Chi at the same time... as you can see.. im not use to small dogs
Oh and his fur is a bit thicker than a Chi or Poms.. so theres gotta be something else there.. im still thinkin Corgi ((not sure which type of Corgi though))
Oh and hes got a curly tail... lol.

Haha!! So bear does not like my lil sister at all!! shes 10yrs old so its not like shes tormenting him... but he just doesnt like her.
This morning when he saw her he started barking then cautiously walked up to her.. sniffed her then came back to sit next to me. Then when my sister went to get off the bed he went crazy barking and growling at her ((Bonnie did not like that at all)) but did not once leave my side. Then a few min later as me and him were walking back to my room my sister was headed to the bathroom and when he saw her he started barking and growling.. but again didnt leave my side.
He doesnt act like that with my mom ((the only other person in our house))... maybe he finds her as a threat to me But its not a problem.. he'll either get use to her or they'll just have to deal with it. Its not like hes attacking her, so its not a big deal.

I took Bear and Bonnie for a walk this morning... Bonnie had no issues. She walked as if he wasnt there! I think slowly introducing them in the house and talking them for walks together every day will help them get use to each other. Oh and when I walk them im gonna make sure they come back into the house at the same time so Bonnie knows hes here and staying.

He's supre cute! I would work on training him to NOT react to your sister. Sure, no one is being hurt but it can me intimidating and you never know when he might leave your side to act on his aggression toward her.

She is adorable!!

Well of course I firmly tell him "No" when he acts mean toward my sister... His growling and Barking never goes unpunished and hes pretty good about calming down when I say "No".

Ok.. new breed idea... maybe Chihuahua/Schipperke Mix or Corgi/Schipperke Mix... or just Chihuahua/Corgi Mix.. ??
Hes got the thick "Mane" like hair around his neck like a Schipperke.
But im still not sure where the curly Tail comes from, either way

EDIT:
Ok I got one even better: a Finnish Spitz/Chihuahua Mix!!
lol ive got a Dog Book in my hands so im looking up breed possibilities.
You know what.. this will be easier.. im gonna make a Poll with all the Breeds I think he is.. you guys vote!
