Genetic analysis have shown that the dog started developing from the wolf about 135.000 years ago. Yet it is highly unlikely that the wolvess were simply domesticated. Contrary to dogs they loose their tameness when they become young grown ups. It is assumed that there had been some wolves that were more trusting and thus dared to go near the upcoming settlings of men. They discovered this way an ecological niche, because there always had been some leftovers. Thus the more trusting wolves had a selective benefit and over thousands of years they evolved into their own species: The dog. Humans were able to breed these for special purposes and thus ensured their survival and expansion.
One of these purposes was known in Ancient Egypt already: Hunting.

According to recordings the Romans brought the Bernese Mountain Dog into Switzerland, where it quickly spread because of his constitution, endurance, and strength. It was used as a watchdog, for pulling small carts, but - until today - as a rescue dog too. The Bernese Mountain Dog is docile and friendly, not agressive, and perfect with children as it will tolerate being climbed over.

Our plush Bernese Mountain Dog is equally apropriate for children. It likes to cuddle with all familiy members and is always in a good mood. The wonderful colours of the hair are eye-catching, the white chest, the deep black of the back and the rust coloured markings.

The second photo shows both Bernese Mountain Dogs manufactured by the Koesen company.
