Apollo 107 lbs. – 25″ tall

Apollo isn’t the tallest Male Bernese at SwissRidge but he has lots of mass to him!
His legs are extremely thick, and he has a massive head. If he was walking in the forest by himself, from the back, he would be mistaken for a Bear.

He looks like a massive teddy bear. He loves to cuddle, laying down with his two legs placed on someone’s lap as they scratch his ears!
Out of all the Male Bernese at SwissRidge Apollo is the more reserved one.  Even though he doesn’t look like it I would describe his personality as a little bit wimpy.

He has a soft, gentle and kind personality. With the girls I always have to AI him because he will never make moves on them, lol! Maybe he has low testosterone. But you can tell he doesn’t want to dominate the girls. He is very respectful towards all the dogs and would rather roll over and submit then get in a conflict with any dog.

He is the type of dog that will give up his toys or bones to any dog that comes by. He will eat last. He is a very patient and calm boy! He is not that active. On hot days in the summer, he would rather relax inside then go for a trail walk. He does overheat very easily in the summer because of is thick coat. He loves the snow and in the winter, he seems to have more energy and wants to go on walks.

He can be goofy and silly at times but for the most part he is more reserved, calm and a dog who likes to chill. See the video below to get a feel for his personality!
