Doc Bear is a name bestowed on this character by fans; he has not been named in the comic. He is a Swartzwalder and acts as the bears' physician, but also treats Dimo, who apparently is not a good patient. It is not known if his white fur is due to being derived from polar bear stock, or just a side effect of the process of his creation by Doctor Dim.

This character is a shoutout to "Doc", a polar bear character in the web comic The Whiteboard. Phil confirms this in a blog entry.
