The boxer dog line started from the moment when the Munich bitch Bullenbeiser took a walk with a male Continue reading

Greater Swiss Mountain Dog

As you know, now in Switzerland there are four dog breeds that are considered local property. And one of the oldest and most popular is the large Swiss Mountain Dog. They resemble the Appenzeller Sennenhund breed, but still have certain differences.

Their warlike ancestors resembled the present mastiffs, were large, fearless, and completely loyal to their masters. Among the local population, they gained great popularity due to their strength and versatility, as well as due to endurance and intelligence.
