I saw a photo of a trained bear who served during World War II moving ammunition. If trained and raised together with dogs, bears will think that they are dogs.

Apparently, bears can be domesticated if treated with kindness.

Russians have successfully bred and domesticated the wild fox, but it took many generations and careful selection because not all wild foxes are suitable for domestication. Only the pups which wagged their tails to greet their human handlers and which displayed other signs of domesticated traits were kept in the breeding pools.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.
