This is a Karelian Bear-dog: http://www.gotpetsonline.com/pictures/gallery/dogs/spitz-dogs/karelian-bear-dogs/karelian-bear-dog-0005/
I love them, they look very awesome. I am kind of concerned about the cost and difficulty of getting one though.
Does anyone who owns / knows someone who owns one know where / how to get one?

They are difficult to find. They do not make good pets, even their handlers (saw a show on them-forest rangers trying to train some new ones and using the experienced ones to relocate troublesome bears. Awesome dogs doing their job)) say they are not for everyone. Do not make good family pets.
