Greater Swiss Mountain Dog

The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog (German: Grosser Schweizer Sennenhund or French: Grand Bouvier Suisse) is a dog breed which was developed in the Swiss Alps. The name Sennenhund refers to people called Senn or Senner, dairymen and herders in the Swiss Alps. Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs are almost certainly the result of indigenous dogs mating with large mastiff types brought to Switzerland by foreign settlers. At one time, the breed was believed to have been among the most popular in Switzerland. It was assumed to have almost died out by the late 19th century, since its work was being done by other breeds or machines, but was rediscovered in the early 1900s.

Two months old and ready to go to their respective owners the puppies are large, talkative, playful and very lovey. At this point they are as large, or larger than most small breed dogs.

Puppies exactly one month later. (one month and 6 days old) They are somewhat mobile, they fall a lot, eyes and ears are open and they like to make noise. They spend 85% of their time sleeping the rest is spent eating or a couple minutes of play.
