This is my brother-in-law Steve’s big German Shepherd, Bear. Bear was skin and bones when Steve got him from the pound, but now he weighs about 100 pounds. His massive head is about as long as Stella’s body and his paws are bigger than a baseball…Just huge! Bear has hip dysplasia, plus Steve soon learned he has epilepsy. He now takes phenobarbitol like our dog Emma does. Because the vet told Steve Bear’s age (about 6 years old) and health issues would put him at too high a risk for anesthesia, he is still intact. Bear has a super mellow personality, a real sweetheart. He just stood still has Stella ran around like the Tasmanian Devil and jumped up to lick his face.
