Bergamasco

3. Bergamasco Shepherd

The unique dread-style coat and sharp intelligence make the Bergamasco Shepherd a wonderful companion and an excellent watchdog. These lively dogs are very well-suited to cooler weather due to the immense density of their coats, which as above mentioned, sets them apart from other breeds of dogs with little to no effort. This thick coat acts as a waterproof barrier, preventing the dog from becoming wet with the exception of the top layer of fur, and the Bergamasco rarely sheds. These interesting canines can grow to be from 70-85 pounds and stand at just under two feet. The Bergamasco is excellent with children and, like most dogs, has a life span of up to 15 years.
