Bermese Mountain Dog

My sister just got a Burmese Mountain Dog puppy and I was just wondering if anyone here has any info on this breed that she should know now. I looked up some things, but if there is anybody with experience with the breed I would love to here from you. Thanks!

I can't believe no one has replied to this yet!
I don't know very much about the breed, other than they really are great dogs. I've heard that they are intelligent and gentle. Just make sure she gets some socialization and good training!

I've never really had any experience with one, but they're beatiful dogs!

The other day I took my parents dog to the park and there was a bermese mountain dog there. He was really sweet.

My moms always wanted one, they're her favorite kind of dog. But they live in a small house so probably won't ever get one unless they move.

Annnyways, sorry I couldn't be more help.

I love the breed,but have no experiance with them.I met a few around the city and they are all friendly,sweet dogs!

I havn't had a whole lot of expierience with them but one came into the shelter a while ago and he was wonderful, I did some research on him so I could get him adopted out, and I did. From what I know they make amazing family dogs, loya, friendly and smart but are very protective if need be. They are easily trained. On the down side you will almost definately run into problems later in life with arthritis, hopefully he is OFA certified but even then most run into problems with their hips latewr in life. The worst thing I hate to even say it is they have a pretty short life span, usually about 7 yrs.
Here's a link I found:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernese_Mountain_Dog
FYI: It's Bernese Mountain Dog! lol
