Arrival Story: Finnegan is my first "Berner" and I decided to get a Berner after much thought and research as the breed has a number of health-related issues that all would-be owners need to be aware of. After meeting numerous Berners, my love for the personality or his breed helped me decide. I had a 200lb St. Bernard, and decided a 120lb Berner would be an easier choice and both breeds have very similar personalities. Finn is a "cheese-head" and from a breeder in WI. He was from a beautiful litter of 13 puppies, and of the 6 male puppies, was just the cutest of the bunch!
