Frankie 80 lbs. – 22″ tall

Frankie is a beautiful Bernese mountain dog out of my mother’s lines, and is the fourth generation bred at her kennel. We have been hand-selecting only the best Bernese to breed over the last four generations.

Frankie’s parents are Harper and Duc. Duc is a stunning dog, imported from an award-winning kennel in France. I had the opportunity to visit the kennel and hand-pick him from the litter. Duc’s lines are health-tested over five generations back, so this kennel is only breeding the best. They also participate in cutting-edge genetic research testing for cancer markers in the breed. This research is so important, and since many of these tests are not available in Canada, we often go overseas when expanding our lines.

Frankie’s mother, Harper, is a large, remarkable dog. Harper is a dog I adore, and I’ve seen so many of her amazing qualities in her offspring. Harper was bred at my mother’s kennel and her parents are Nellar and Dominique. Dominique and Duc are from the same kennel in France. Nellar was also bred at my mother’s kennel – her parents are Veruschka, who was imported from an award-winning kennel in Slovakia, and Daiko, who was imported from Belgium over a decade ago. For more information on these dogs, you can visit my mother’s website at moorsbernese.com.

Frankie is a unique dog, and somewhat small for a Bernese. She is one of the shorter Berners in the kennel, but she’s very stocky. Her legs are so thick that I can’t even wrap my hand around them! She is a very solid girl with a huge, beautiful head and a very broad chest. Her personality is just as unique as her looks. She is a goofball and she has the weirdest sleeping positions. We sometimes sneak up on her while she’s sleeping just so we can see her new position, which always sparks a laugh when we see the crazy position she’s twisted herself into! She doesn’t like to be moved when she’s asleep and will often sense when someone is nearby, watching them out of one eye as they pass.

She gets along with any dog no matter their size. She loves the fresh, outdoor air and I call her my Outdoor Girl because she never wants to come inside, no matter what the weather! Who could blame her? She is a very loyal and loving dog to the humans who she is bonded with, and would follow them to the ends of the earth. She happily obeys and will take food from people she knows, but will turn a cheek and walk away from strangers. You definitely know where you stand with Frankie at all times. She has a very calm and docile nature and she never makes a commotion at the kennel. She is a dog that is loved by everyone. I’m so excited to add her to my breeding program!
