Hi there and thanks for checking out my page!  I’m Melissa Bastian and I am so excited to share my story with you! My journey started back in 2018 when I decided to get my first Bernese Mountain Dog.  I never do anything half a** so I imported my first female from Poland.  It was love at first sight and I knew that everyone should have a BMD.  Right?  My husband had to burst my bubble and say “Melissa not everyone wants a 130 pound dog”.  Fair enough I thought so I considered breeding Bernedoodles but when I researched Bernedoodles I thought there has got to be a better breed than a Poodle to mix with a BMD.  So the search began to find the perfect match for my beautiful girl Dalia.  After weeks of searching I came across the Portuguese Water Dog.  The PWD is an affectionate, intelligent and athletic breed making it the perfect combination with the BMD. Here is what you can expect from your Berneguese puppy: Athletic Loyal Smart Low to no shedding Longer lifespan Perfect size (40 to 60 pounds) and your next best friend! Should you have any questions, or if you would like to be contacted regarding future litters, call or text me at 563-650-5588. I look forward to providing your new four-legged pal.

We got our puppy for Melissa a week ago, and we are absolutely in love with him! He is a very well behaved puppy with the best personality. Melissa was very easy to communicate with, and you can tell how much love and energy her and her family put into their litters. She has also created a Facebook page where dog owners can stay in touch with her and families from past, current, and future litters.
