The Karelian Bear Dog has small ears that are cocked and point outward slightly. 
They are lined with dense fur, reducing the risk of frostbite.

The shorthaired all-weather coat consists of straight, stiff hair while the under-layer is soft and dense.

The thighs are covered in thick hair. Like the Russo-European Laika, the breed has a distinctive black and white coat, which is unusual for northern Spitz-type dogs.

A copper tint is typical. Black speckles in the white are considered a fault. The dog should be primarily black with white markings, which are distinct and occur on the head, neck, chest, abdomen and legs. The jaws are immensely powerful. 

The tail is long. The small eyes show intense concentration. The tail curls over the back in a typical Spitz arch.

Robustly built, well-boned and of moderate size, the Karelian Bear Dog is slightly longer than he is tall. The head is shaped as a blunt wedge. The body is sturdy and the back is well developed.

Temperament: Tenacious, Loyal, Cautious, Territorial, Independent, Brave

Health Problems: This is a fairly healthy breed.
