Dogs Stay Small
Bernese mountain dogs are a large breed that can weigh up to 120 pounds. They have long, shaggy coats that require grooming at least once a week (though twice is better). These dogs are mostly black in color, but have white patches on their chest and snout. They are accented with symmetrical tan (or rust) colored markings on their legs, cheeks and eyebrows.
This is a friendly breed that typically gets along well with everybody, including other pets and dogs. Social dogs, they thrive when they are allowed to live indoors with their families. Though physically able to live outdoors in cooler weather, Bernese mountain dogs can get lonely if they aren’t able to spend enough time with their humans. They are very devoted to their families. They can be reserved when meeting strangers, but a well-socialized Bernese can be loving toward new people as well as family and friends. A working breed, these dogs are intelligent and easily trained.
Despite their large size, Bernese mountain dogs are not energetic dogs. They are calm, patient and laid back. They do enjoy moderate walks, which should be given daily to maintain a healthy weight. When inside, a Bernese prefers to snooze rather than play. These calm mannerisms might not kick in until the dog is fully matured, however. Bernese mountain dogs sometimes act like puppies much longer than other breeds, and may not truly reach adulthood until 2 or 3 years of age.
Unfortunately, the Bernese mountain dog is subject to some health problems. They do not tolerate heat well and can suffer heat stroke. Elbow and hip dysplasia are other problems that breed might develops. According to a survey by the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America in 2000, these dogs live an average of 7.2 years. Cancer is becoming an increasing problem in this breed, causing many dogs to die young.
Favorites of All Time:
Fantasy, Science Fiction and Mysteries are my favorite genres and I love animals of all shapes and sizes, so when you put them together, well, I could stay happily occupied for hours. This lens contains an annotated bibliography of the animal fantasy, incredible story and mystery books and multimedia that I liked as a child and still enjoy as an adult. Some of my all time favorites include Watership Down, Rabbit Hill, Charlotte’s Web and Bambi. Today, you can find many print and multimedia versions of these old favorites, as well as plush stuffed animals and other toys, too.
After checking with the owner who will accept pets, be sure to check the restrictions of race.
In some apartments, particularly in cities, there are no restrictions as to race requiring a choice only a certain kind and forbids others. It often breeds that can be considered aggressive or protective. These often include Rottweilers, Doberman Pinscher, Pit Bull, German Shepherd, and Boxer. Most of the structures will have a detailed list of breeds of dogs are not allowed.
