There are hundreds of dog breeds around the world, and each has its own unique characteristics and personalities. Meanwhile, there are some that have a strong resemblance to wild animals. One large pet dog in Norway has been constantly mistaken for a bear, claims its owner.
Runny, a 1-year-old Leonberger, who stays with her owner, Marit Lillejordet, in Oslo, is known to shock curious walkers when she is on a stroll in the forests with her huge demeanor.
Meanwhile, others who are not familiar with the breed "think I’m walking a bear in the woods!" her owner added.
However, not only does Runny resemble a bear, but she is also known to show some bear-like characteristics, such as taking joy in long walks in the forest and also finding pleasure taking a cool dip in the lakes, said her 57-year-old owner.
Although Runny boasts a large persona, she actually adores and enjoys the company of other dogs and humans.
Lillejordet, who is a mental health therapist by profession, said: “She is kind to everyone she meets, both humans and other dogs.”
“You can see it in her face and her wagging tail that she is a very kind girl,” Lillejordet further added.
Lillejordet totally adores this dog breed. She revealed, according to the Daily Star, “I have had Leonberger for 27 years and I am deeply in love with this breed.”
