We brought Bethy in off the airplane from Wisconsin as a puppy and she has always been a character.. Bethy is a smart, confident, friendly girl- lacking the hesitation often found in Berners. She loves to pester the farm animals, and people alike. She is very strong, heavy boned. She has the most strength and endurance of our females pulling a sled even though she is not the biggest yet. Bethy has a nice blocky head and body. Bethy loves to cuddle, but is a guard dog at least against intruding animals and one you would want to take on a hard journey or to do some serious work on a ranch.
