Ever since I met my friend's giant Bernese Mountain Dog, Ruby, when I was a kid, they've always been one of my favorite breeds. Large, fluffy, and adorned with unforgettable coloring and particularly slobbery tongues, these oversize doggos are the definition of gentle. Interestingly enough, the breed originally hails from the Swiss Alps, so it's no wonder they give off an especially regal air. Known for being great with kids and for their loyal temperament, it's easy to see why this breed is widely beloved. Can't get enough of Bernese Mountain Dogs?
