So you’re looking to adopt an Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, ““Greater” than what? Well, standing as high as 28.5 inches and weighing as much as a midsize human, a Greater Swiss might easily be greater than you.Swissies are immensely strong, yet agile enough to move a flock across the sloping foot of a mountain. The coat is a striking tricolor—black, red, and white. The head and muzzle typically have a white marking (the “blaze”), setting off a sweet expression. Several big mountain-dog breeds are described as “majestic,” but Swissies practically invented the word. The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is a large, immensely strong worker famous for a dense coat of striking black, red, and white markings. Dependable and faithful Swissies earned their feed as herders, drafters, and all-around pasture dogs.”
An Greater Swiss Mountain Dog typically ranges from 59.69cm to 72.39cm in height, and weighs from 38.55535145kg to 63.502931800000006kg.
