These Bernese Mountain dog names salute one of the more interesting canines in the dog kingdom.
Not only is this breed BIG, it also posses the following interesting breed facts…
1. This dog is so old that little is known about when it first came into being. Some believe the Bernese Mountain came with the Romans when they came to Switzerland over 2000 years ago, but since there were other large breeds in this country before them no one is fully sure.
2. The Bernese Mountain was bred as working dogs by farm families that used them as guard and herding dogs.
3. They eventually became cart pullers. Around the mid 1880s when cheese became more popular in Switzerland, Berners (a nickname for this breed) were so strong (they can haul 10 times their own weight) that owners attached them to carts filled with bread and dairy products.
