Ophelia 85 lbs. – 26″ tall
Ophelia is a beautiful Bernese Mountain dog who I imported from Europe.
She has a slightly smaller build then some of my other European Bernese but she is just as stunning. Her pedigree is outstanding. It is full of Good/Excellent hip ratings. Ophelia’s breeder is just as picky as myself when it comes to breeding high quality dogs. He does the same amount of testing as I do on the Bernese.
Ophelia’s parents have all been testing for hips, elbows, eyes, shoulders, heart, Vwd and DM. This is a great feeling to know that the puppies that Ophelia produces have ancestors tested many generations back and for a number of health ailments that the breed is prone to.
Ophelia also comes from a long line of Champions in her pedigree and some very well-known bloodlines. She has both health and beauty in her pedigree. Ophelia’s mother turned 11 years old this year (2020) which is a good age for a Bernese so you know she has longevity in her pedigree as well! I also own Ophelia’s full brother Odin and a few of her other brother went to breeders in America. I keep in touch with these breeders and all her brothers have passed their health clearances. This proves she comes from healthy lines in both her horizontal and vertical pedigree. It is a great feeling to know that her siblings have passed their clearances!
Ophelia has the sweetest personality! She is the type of dog that loves to be loved but she is not to much dog. She doesn’t seem pushy and she doesn’t have that stubborn nature that I see in some Bernese. She listens, she is polite and most of all she is gentle. She knows she is a big dog and will not try to get on your lap. She respects space. She will lean up against us for a pet but will not try to jump in our lap. She has a gentle, sweet and loving nature. She gets along with all the dog in the kennel. She does well with more outgoing dogs and will match their play style but if she is with a calmer/older dog that doesn’t want to play she will just lay beside them and relax. She will not egg them on.
Ophelia is the type of dog that likes to be active but doesn’t need to go for a run everyday. She will go for trail walks, but she doesn’t have a ton of energy. She would be happy laying by her owner’s feet being pet all day. She is an easy dog and has an amazing personality.
