Bernese Mountain Dogs are ideal for colder temperatures as they were originally bred as working dogs in their native Switzerland.
The breed is strong and athletic, and many use the dogs on farms to herd livestock or pull heavy loads through remote areas.
Bernese Mountain Dogs have a short life expectancy and only live six to eight years on average.
An animal expert also revealed that the breed is a type of Velcro dog.
“Bernese Mountain Dogs love being close to their owners and can struggle with separation anxiety if left alone for too long,” he said in an interview Video.
“They are the perfect family dogs, my two-year-old Bernese gets along great with my little daughter,” said one father.
