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:
