Bernese Mountain Dog

The Bernese Mountain Dog is a large breed gentle and originally for the purpose of working on farms. The thick, silky, and moderately long coat is tri colored: jet black, clear white, and rust. The distinctive markings on the coat and face are breed hallmarks and, combined with the intelligent gleam in the dark eyes, add to the Bernese Mountain Dog “Berner’s” aura of majestic nobility. A hardy dog who thrives in cold weather, the Berner’s brain and brawn helped him multitask on the farms and pastures of Switzerland, tending to animals on the farm lands and also carting the bottles of milk to nearby homes, life looks a little different for the Bernese today.
Berners get along with the entire family and are particularly gentle with children, but they will often become more attached to one lucky human. Berners are imposing but not threatening, and they maintain an aloof dignity with strangers.
