Who looks like an Ursus americanus aka American Black Bear? Our Bear!

“Used Dog” or Second-Hand Puppy, much cheaper than a brand-new Collie 🙂 We adopted Bear and drove an 8-hour trip one Sunday to buy him from a young couple who found him a bit much to handle. The ad:

10 month old male long-haired collie for sale! He’s in his tween phase and is beautiful! Tri-colored (black, white, and tan) with black and tan markings. He’s very smart like all collies and can be easily trained! He’s great with people and loves everyone. The reason we’re selling him is that we have our own baby on the way and can’t take care of both! Looking for a loving home and family 🙂 He is up-to-date on vaccinations and has been neutered. Please contact for info and if interested! Price includes large crate, some toys, and food/water dishes. – (The 3 photos below are theirs) –


Bear comes from a Kansas City breeder, Bailey’s Collies, with a royal lineage: “Father has 6/15 points for his champion title. Mother’s bloodline was imported from Italy and is stacked full of International Champions and some American Champions as well. Both parents are simply gorgeous with great temperaments.”

Sire: Bailey’s World Class “Onyx”; Dam: Bailey’s “Mystic Steel Blue Dandy” – I don’t even know the names of Prince’s sire and dam, and he’s neutered anyway, but I have no doubt he’s “world class.” 15622684_10211603348229199_8236806785185708033_n
