She is a Bernedoodle from the first litter of bernedoodles ever born here at Nito Ranch. Jade is a sweet girl. She is so calm and mellow in the house that she rarely leaves the couch. When she does go outside to play she prefers to watch the chickens and dig holes in my flower bed. I can't stay mad at her for long because she is such a darling dog. If you have been to the ranch before you may know Jade's parents, Tilly and Reese. That pairing has made some of the nicest dogs in term of demeanor you could ask for. I'm so glad we had the foresight to keep one back for ourselves. Look for Jade to have mini Bernedoodle babies with a great personality in the future.
Shasta was one of the first dogs on the ranch. She is a F1 goldendoodle. She is exceptionally clean. She can run like the wind but is also happy to chill on the couch. She is an excellent mother and teaches her puppies manners and starts them on potty training. Shasta's puppies are often a variety of colors depending on who the sire is. She is very easy to live with and doesn't shed at all. Our customers have given us a lot of very good feedback about Shasta's puppies.
Pico is a purebred Moyen-sized Blue Merle Poodle. He has a great personality. He gets along with everyone and is happy to do whatever the family wants to do. He is not high strung. He enjoys riding in the car and going hiking. Pico will be the sire for both Goldendoodle and Bernedoodle puppies. So far he has produced some beautiful blue merle and chocolate Merle puppies, some have even had striking blue eyes.
Dali is named after Salvador Dali. She is a parti colored purebred standard poodle. She is your typical poodle. She likes to be the top dog on the ranch. She is perfect in her genetics and composition. She is gentle with people and takes her time checking things out. Once she is sure of you then she loves to be pet and played with. Dali is new to the ranch and has not yet had any puppies. Now that her health clearances are done we plan for her to have her first litter of Bernedoodle puppies in 2018. We hope that she will produce some gorgeous tried colored Bernedoodles for us and our families.
Leo is named after Leonardo DaVinci. He is a parti colored poodle with phantom markings. He will sire tri colored bernedoodles and parti colored goldendoodles. He passed his genetic testing and joint certifications in 2018 and has already proven to be a great addition to the ranch. He does like to let people know he is here, often the first to say hello but then is off to doing his own thing. He loves to play with the females and check out the cattle on the farm. He likes to be pet and has the best coat so I like to pet him just as much. He is very smart and will pass that trait along to his pups.
Danika is one of our Bernese Mt Dog females. She has great markings and a super silky coat. Danika has always been more independent and likes to play and entertain herself. She loves people and gets along great with the other animals on the farm.
Danica went through the OFA certification process this past winter. Danica had her hips evaluated by the OFA, and according to the OFA her hips are GOOD. There is no evidence of hip dysplasia. She also had her elbows and shoulders evaluated. Her elbows are NORMAL with no signs of elbow dysplasia. Danica also received a NORMAL rating for her shoulders. According to the OFA there is no evidence of Osteochondrosis or Degenerative Joint Disease(DJD). She tested clear for vonWilebrands disease.
Tilly is the sister to Danika. Tilly will do anything for a treat. She has a fuzzier coat that sheds less and a beautiful block head. Tilly prefers to be with others and will take all the attention she can get. This past winter, Tilly had OFA certification done. According to the OFA there is no evidence of hip dysplasia, and her hip joint confirmation has been evaluated as GOOD. Tilly also has had her elbows and shoulders evaluated and according to the OFA there is no evidence of elbow dysplasia and her evaluation was NORMAL. The third evaluation was done on her shoulders. According to the OFA her shoulders came back NORMAL, and there is no evidence of Osteochondrosis or Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD). Tilly also is clear for vonWilebrands Disease.
Ozzie has some big shoes to fill. He will be replacing our beloved Archie as the sire to our Bernese Mountain Dogs. Ozzie is quiet and easy going. Just the way you want your berne. He is gorgeous with perfect markings and a good broad frame. Ozzie likes to be around his people but respects your space enough to not be all up in your face. He gets along well with all the other animals here at the ranch. I look forward to seeing his puppies in 2018.
Atlas is from imported lines. He is shorter than the other Berner studs we have had but no less striking. He has a gorgeous blocky head and nice markings. He is a sweet sweet boy and we love taking him on hikes. He isn't too sure about going over bridges, but he is quite content to stick to Tom's side wherever we go. He definitely knows who feeds him most and does what he can to please Tom. His long gorgeous coat reminds me of a lion, he is just a regal boy.
