Werlwind's Nor'Easter Storm "Stormee"
Be sure you have done your research and know all about Berners. This is important for anyone adopting any breed. Most dogs that are euthanized are euthanized for reasons that would be avoided had those folks done their research. To find out all about Bernese you can go to our links page. There are many many other resources on the internet and there are a lot of books that have been written on Bernese.
So you have done your research and you know that the life span of a Berner as a large breed dog is not long lifespan. For us one day with any one of our Berners is worth it, though we will not settle for anything less than many years with our dogs. You know that shedding and a great deal of Berner hair will be everywhere in your home. You know that Bernese do not do well living in kennels and are a breed that does well as an active member of your family. You know that adopting a puppy is the cheapest part of bringing a Berner into your family. Not only will you now have normal puppy expenses, but you may take out the carpet and opt for hardwoods or tile “to keep the Berner cool”. You may opt to get a larger vehicle for “the dog”. You will get a better camera “for those ohhh so cute puppy pictures”. Of course, you will add air conditioning “for the comfort of the dog”. Oh, and you know we have one dog who got a new house and big backyard, because her other house had a large pool in the backyard and she did not have any place to play…………..
Convinced that a Berner is the perfect dog --- the next step is finding a breeder that you can work with. Werlwind Bernese is a 24/7 support for you and your dog.
