Here at Oregon Bernese I have guardian homes which give my adult dogs their own loving families who they live with other than when they come to have their puppies here in our cozy puppy nursery. When the dog retires they stay permanently with their guardian family. This gives families who may not otherwise be able to find or  afford a great quality & well trained dog a chance to welcome one into their family at no cost to them in exchange for the dog staying with the breeder once a year for 5-6 weeks to have it litter of puppies. When a dog retires, they will stay with their guardian family for life. I am so thankful to my guardian families who give such wonderful lives to the girls in my program.   

Female Guardian Home Summary

The guardian female will be entrusted free of charge to the guardian to love on, socialize & be part of their family. The breeder will cover many of the costs of the dog including health testing, annual vet exams & all needed vaccines. The guardian will bring the dog to the breeder for health testing, vaccinations & vet appointments as needed. Once the dog is 2 years old & has had all of its health testing completed the guardian will notify the breeder when the female is in heat & she will stay with the stud for approximately 5-9 days after which she will be returned to guardian home during pregnancy. (Pregnancy lasts 2 months) until 1 week before the due-date of 58 days to have time to settle in. After the puppies are born she will stay with the breeder until the puppies are 5-6 weeks old at which point she will go home to her guardian. The guardian is welcome to schedule visits during the dogs stay with the breeder & the breeder will send updates on the dog to the family. For each of the four litters the guardian will receive a $500 stipend OR a puppy to keep from the 4th litter. Once she has had her 4 litters of puppies she will retire & be spayed at the breeder's expense and the guardian home will receive full ownership of the dog.

Mozzie is a very gentle & affectionate AKC Bernese Mountain Dog girl. Who comes from amazing European bloodlines. She loves kids & would love to be in a family with kids she can play with or someone she can be the companion too. She has very laid back & calm temperament. She is an amazing mama & just such a sweet girl.

This gorgeous girl is a wonderful companion & family dog. If you are looking for a sweet girl who has already grown out of her puppy stage & is house trained she could be your girl! She is very snuggly & wants to be as close to a lap dog as she can. 

Length & terms of guardianship: Mozzie would have 2 litters of puppies before being spayed & retiring with her guardian family. For these two litters she would come stay here at Oregon Bernese for about 5 weeks while her puppies are little & then be able to go home to her guardian home.

If you would like to learn more about being a guardian for her send me a message!

Meet Rose! She is very gentle & loving to everyone including kids & puppies. She enjoys snuggling on the couch & has very calming presence. She has an "old soul" personality that is very comforting to be around. I love how soft & kind her eyes are. 

Rose is independent & calm even without other dogs with her so she would do well both in a single dog or multiple dog home.
