A beautiful, sturdy dog from Switzerland, the Bernese Mountain Dog is a traditional working farm dog. A gentle giant, they are more than happy to play with children and be hitched up to a small cart ? an alternative nanny? Unfortunately they are prone to mobility problems and are susceptible to cancer, which can shorten their life span. Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame is a proud Bernese Mountain Dog owner.
