Meru & Westley January 2024 Puppies


 Meru & Westley's puppies arrived January 16th! Meru & the babies are doing so well! 5 girls & 2 boys. Meru is an amazing mama & very proud of her pups!

I am posting updates on the Facebook page regularly. Please visit the Facebook page to watch them grow!


The pups will all be traditional tri color with medium/long soft coats. Meru is 75 & Westley is 85: I expect girls to be approximately 70 - 85 lbs & 85 - 95 lbs for boys. These puppies will be excellent family dogs as well as therapy & service dog candidates.

Puppies will go home with AKC registration papers, detailed care info, full medical records, adoption contract & health guarantee, a snuggly blanket that smells like mom, toys & treats, probiotics, pumpkin and a small bag of Diamond Natural's Large Breed Lamb & Rice puppy food.

Puppies will also go home with 1 month health insurance from AKC & Trupanion. They have had had microchips implanted before going home with you with lifetime registration I have pre-paid so that the pups will always be able to be tracked back to you if lost. 


Puppy Pick Day: Puppies will be chosen on March 2nd in order of the litter list. Families will be sent temperament evaluations for the puppies to read over before before their visit. Each family will have a 45 minute appointment to visit the puppies in person or over FaceTime to chose their new family member.

Puppy Socialization​

My puppies are raised using a socialization program Puppy Culture & ENS. This program uses positive training to teach pups that new experiences are fun & safe not something to fear or be anxious about. The puppies will work on: potty training, crate training, going on car rides, visiting the vet, being groomed & having their nails trimmed. I have the puppies play with kids of all ages, adults, other gentle adult dogs of various sizes & our cat.​

Puppy Health Care

The pups will be on a health care schedule supervised by my vet. Their first de-worming's are at 2, 4, 6 & 8 weeks & they receive their first Parvo/Distemper vaccination at 5 weeks & second vaccination at 7-8 weeks. Each pup has a microchip implanted & I pre-pay lifetime registration. They all have individual thorough vet checks before going home & you will receive a written exam report from the vet.

Meru is an absolute doll. This girl lives with her guardian dad who takes her everywhere with him. You may spot her on the road with her head out his Jeep's window on their way to hike a mountain, swim in the ocean or take a run in the desert. Meru is always down for an adventure, is loyal & may or may not think she is part human. She likes to talk to people, not in an obnoxious way but at times she will cock her head to the side and let out a deep woof expecting you to understand her. When she visits here, she insists on sleeping right next to me in bed much to the chagrin of my girls.

Meru is AKC registered & 75 lbs.

Meet Westley the father to Bernese Mountain dog pups here! His name is inspired by the valiant hero Westley in “The Princess Bride”. He is a very well-structured boy with a thick fluffy coat. Westley is a very laid-back boy especially for his age. He spends a lot of time napping on the couch with the girls but if I’m there he watches me very intently often with a curious, expressive head tilt. His favorite treat is string cheese which he very delicately nibbles from my hand Westley is 85 lb. & his health clearances are:


PennHip - DI 0.36 = Excellent score showing no predispositions to hip dysphasia.
