Now, remember, THIS is a puppy who was late to learn bite inhibition so she bit EVERYTHING... And she had attachment issues, so she didn't like to be touched... Berner puppies are cute for a reason — so they survive to adulthood! Even well-bred, well-raised Berner puppies are often just so darn cute you want to hug them to pieces and ALL they want to do is BITE you... into bite-sized pieces! And THIS puppy had an extra dose of that due to a rough start... So this is part warning — a rescue puppy IS cute, but is NOT easy — and an encouragement — a rescue puppy CAN be put back on the road to good dog-dom.
What?! I'm just thinking how that toy basket would taste... I haven't started actually chewing it YET!
With my buddy Teddy — TUG with a stick! The best game...
BERNER Inc. Bernese Education & Rescue, Northeast Region
Bernese Education and Rescue – Northeast Region is a non-profit organization, staffed by a group of volunteers, working to provide medical care and placement in adoptive homes for BMDs who have been surrendered to shelters, pounds or to us. We also endeavor to educate the public on responsible acquisition, care and training of BMDs in the hope that we can thus reduce the number of Bernese Mountain Dogs who are relinquished to rescue or to shelters.
