Bernese Mountain Dog

Postby kaipakati » 02 Jul 2012, 23:10

I have a 2 year old Bernese Mountain Dog for adoption, to only the very best of homes. I took him in as a 3 day old puppy, condemned to death because the white blaze on his nose was a bit wonky. He's an incredibly loving, gentle giant, bigger than average, with paws the size of a lion. He's NOT the ideal breed for Taiwan. He suffers terribly from the heat in summer, and without either clipping or aircon, loses his appetite and doesn't move for six months. He has recurring tendonitis in one paw that flares up if he runs too much, but his joints are fine. His size and hairiness mean he's a lot of work. But he's gorgeous, intelligent, great with children, gets on well with cats and other dogs, and because of his upbringing, he's very close to people. He would love to be a family's special dog. He loves to ride a scooter - yep, he just fits, if it's a big one. He's not terribly demanding, but he loves walks, lying in a paddling pool or puddle of muddy water, chest scratches and the occasional cuddle on the couch. He walks nicely on a lead, and he's trained to sit and wait for attention if anyone folds their arms in front of him, so he's not too intimidating to strangers.

We currently have 10 dogs, most of whom are available for adoption. Ruru has now joined the adoptable list because he's decided that he loves poultry a little too much. He needs a home where he can't love chickens and ducks to death.
We rehomed one other Bernese Mountain Dog to a family who adore him and give him the kind of lifestyle and one on one attention that isn't available in a household full of mutts, and if we could find an equally great family for Ruru, we'd like to give him that opportunity too.

Anyone interested can PM their details to me.

This is my fav breed of dog. I so wish I could take him, but my 20 pinger would be far too small for the 4 of us. Best of luck finding him a home. He'll make a great addition to any family.
