Madelyn 83 lbs. – 23.5″ tall
Madelyn is from very strong, healthy, and well-tempered lines that I have had the privilege of knowing for many generations. There is so much more to breeding dogs than putting two dogs together and seeing what happens. It is of utmost importance to be selective in the process and well informed of a dog’s pedigree. When I look at the lineage, it is important for me to look at health and structure, and to learn as much as I can about the dogs’ temperaments as well. Bernese are known to have several health problems, so it’s critical for a breeder to conduct extensive research into the pedigree.
Madelyn’s parents are Jacqueena 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.
Madelyn’s mother, Jacqueena, is a large, exquisite dog. She 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.
All of the dogs that make up these lines have been imported from the best kennels around the world, including kennels in France, Belgium, and Slovakia. I am so confident in these lines that I kept four puppies from one of Jacqueena’s litters – Adelyn, Cordelia, Electra, and Madelyn – and a female from another one of her litters, named Cristal. It’s important to look at the horizontal pedigree as well as the vertical pedigree, which I’m able to do because I see the parental lineage in addition to testing siblings.
Madelyn has a typical Bernese temperament; she is social, loving, and affectionate. She goes with the flow and adapts to change quite easily. She lived with my mom before the new kennel was complete, and when she was finally ready to move into her new home, it was like she’d always lived here. It was a very easy transition for her. She loves bath time and to be groomed afterwards. But she equally loves getting dirty and rolling in the grass, dirt, or snow. She is a fantastic dog and one I’m thrilled to have in the breeding program.
