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.
Bella was born here at Nito Ranch. Her Dam is Lacey our BMD and her Sire is Pico our Moyen blue merle poodle. She is living in a guardian home where she is spoiled with regular hiking trips and visits to the apple orchard. She has been very easy to train and love. We can't wait to see how cute her puppies are. We plan to use her for standard and mini f1b bernedoodles starting sometime in late 2021.
Paisley was born here at the Ranch. She was one our first Mini bernedoodles sired by Mickey. She is a very affectionate little girl. She absolutely loves to snuggle on the couch but equally enjoys playing with her dog friends in the yard. She's good for her groomings as well. Paisley is what I would consider a perfect family dog. Versatile, yet gentle enough to get along with everyone in the family from toddlers through grandparents and everyone in between. In the future she will be the Mom to f1b tiny and mini bernedoodles.
THE BERNESE MT. DOGS
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.
Berkeley is the daughter to our beloved Archie and Tilly. She reminds me so much of her Dad when I look at her. She is very sweet and loves attention. With little time spent on training she intuitively knows how to behave with one exception, she steals shoes. She really enjoys grabbing a boot or a shoe any chance she gets and carries it around the yard like it's her most prized possession. Thankfully she doesn't chew them up. She is great on a walk or just hanging around. She has a thick gorgeous coat and picture perfect Bernese markings. We have been really happy with her mothering skills and know you're going to love your puppy if you choose one of hers.
Lacey is the daughter of our first ever BMD's Archie and Danika. Lacey is the perfect blend of loving her people and not being too clingy. She can often be found just laying in the driveway. She will definitely greet you and want to be pet but then is happy to go do her own thing. She is a little smaller and does great in the house, with the kids and with other pets. I often find her being loved on by the cats. Like our other berners she isn't a barker or a chewer. She loves the outdoors and is a happy go lucky girl.
Meet Evie, She is a purebred Bernese Mt Dog imported from Serbia. She will be a future Bernese Mt Dog Mom added to our breeding program starting in late 2021. She has passed her health clearances and her basic obedience classes. Passing obedience was a little bit harder for Evie than some of our Berners simply because she just wants to be pet and snuggled. She is far too distracted by being lovable to bother with boring things like sit and stay. You can not have a bad day with Evie around to cheer you up and love on you.
She is a pure bred golden retriever. She is a field type, smaller dark, red retriever. She has the typical happy go lucky just pet me pet me demeanor you'd expect from a golden. She will be a future mom to F1 Goldendoodle puppies.
Echo is an English Cream Golden Retriever.
She is gorgeous and has a sweet personality. She is very easy to live with, she likes everyone and she gets along very well with our dogs. Typical to her breed she loves to carry things around in her mouth so we have to keep stuffed animals and socks picked up at all times. She is a good Mom and takes very good care of her 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 has not yet had any puppies. Her health clearances are done we hoped for her to have her first litter of Bernedoodle puppies in 2018. Unfortunately she was unable to stick with puppies even though she is in great health. We will be picky about who can adopt her but we are looking for a forever home for Dali where she can be part of the family.
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. We have had great feedback from families who have adopted his pups, easy going and so smart.
Mona is a cream and white standard poodle. She has the softest fur and feels luxurious to pet. Mona is actually short for Monet because she is as pretty as a picture. She is a very loving dog that seems to have a sixth sense which allows her to know when someone needs her affection. She is not an alpha dog and gets along very well with other dogs and cats. Her love for others is a trait we hope she will pass along to her puppies. While she is athletic and can jump high when she wants to show off she is not one to be hyper and jump all over people. I believe she would be an excellent therapy dog and I have enjoyed seeing how perfect her puppies are too.
Mickey is named after Michael Angelo. He is a miniature blue merle poodle. He carries the parti gene and has given us some absolutely gorgeous merle tri mini bernedoodles. He is too smart for his own good and gives Tom a run for his money some days. For whatever reason Mickey is particularly fond of Nichole and will do whatever she wants. He follows her wherever she goes and then plops down at her feet. He's like her shadow and personal foot warmer. He enjoys playing with the puppies and gets to go on lots of car rides. He's really fun to have around.
